Where did that idea come from?

Where do you find your scrappy inspiration these days?  I am super addicted to Pinterest and you can find small elements of inspiration in other craft projects, gifts, and home decor photos.  I also love scrolling down my favorite scrappers blogs because it always makes me want to scrap!

We are having the last day of our virtual crop over at the Nook and there is so much eye-candy!  Our theme is "A Midsummer Night's Dream" with everything Shakespeare inspired!  I hosted two challenges and one of them involved the quote, "What a deformed theif fashion is."  I put together this inspiration board full of Elizabethan fashions.

The challenge is to steal inspiration and incorporate it into a layout!

Here is my take:

I know the layout is not Elizabethan...but it doesn't have to be.  What I did do was replicate the ruffle around the lady's necks.  Hence the scalloped circle with the smaller scalloped chipboard.

And the idea for the burlap twine under my title came from the corsetting on the dresses.  I knew I wanted to do a criss cross of some sort and this is how it turned out!  I love the little monochromatic detail it gives!

Inspiration is everywhere!  Maybe you just found some from the fashion above.  Thanks Shakespeare!
