Tyra's Inspiration Challenge with a Prize

This is Tyra and I'm here to host the SEI Inspiration Challenge! Are you excited? I am, so let's get started.

I found inspiration in an object I use almost daily: a grocery bag. Not just any grocery bag but this beautiful reusable bag from one of my favorite grocers:

There are so many directions you can go when using this bag as inspiration. I choose to focus on the composition of the bag; the layers and placement of colors, the circles, and other decorative elements. The other source of my inspiration is the fall season. We are still enjoying the warmth and sun outside as the leaves are slowly changing colors. SEI's Vogue collection, featured in one of SEI's past scrapbooking kits, is perfect for this time of year. The best way to describe this collection is that it is like the warmth of summer extending into the colors of fall. The Yesteryear Collection of foil accented paper, sundries, stickers and die-cut accents would also work very well with the following projects.

First, I created this card by layering in various papers and embellishments all from the Vogue collection. The well coordinated collection feathers, sundries, vellum sentiment and ribbon all came perfectly together.

Next I created mini banners using SEI's banner kit. I painted the corrugated banner in a creamy white and layered it with elements from the Vogue collection. I die cut words from coordinating paper and created a mini banner, perfect as a note of encouragement to a friend, colleague or loved one. I'm going to hang mine in my office.

What will you create?
