LESSology Challenge #9: Creative projects of Angi Barrs and Julie Tucker-Wolek! :)


Let's see how Angi Barrs and Julie Tucker-Wolek interpreted LESSology Challenge #9: Inspiration Board! :)

Angi Barrs

Hello everyone! Angi here. Glad to see you all back for our first LESSology challenge in the new year! This challenge is a lot of fun!

Inspiration boards are all about personality. You need to make one that fits your style. I made this one for a friend of mine that loves birds. She wanted it small enough to fit on her desk and wanted an area to hang a picture or her to do list. I kept the design clean and simple for this one.

The white panel is from a storage cube that I got at Michael's craft store. The cube is falling apart and I didn't want to throw the pieces away, so I decided to upcycle it.

The chocolate colored vinyl bird is from Stampin' Up and the bottom border is from Creative Memories. I put some small clothespins in the upper left hand corner so that she can hang whatever she likes on that side of the board.

Hope you liked my little creation.
I can't wait to see what you all make for this challenge.

I decided to take a different approach to my inspiration board :) I have chosen "HOPE" as my OLW (One Little Word) for 2012, and so I decided to take a wood clipboard that I had and alter it to include one of my all time fave quotes (from the movie Hope Floats) and have this be my inspirational board for 2012 :)

Here is the quote that I used: "Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will..."

Can't wait to see what you create for this challenge :) ~~Julie
