Photo Inspiration on Paper Girls

Happy Monday!  I'm the hostess with the mostess for the newest challenge on The Paper Girls Challenge blog.  I decided early on that I wanted to do a photo inspiration. Those are some of my favorite challenges. As soon as I took these photos (on my cell phone!) at Laumeier Sculpture Park in St. Louis, MO, I thought, what a cool scrapbook page that would make.  I loved the mosaic look and how the colors came through. 

Here is the photo inspiration (ignore the photographer captured in some of the reflective tiles...  ;-) ).

I used all the colors and the mosaic look to inspire my project...

I have had this print/cut file from Studio Calico in my collection for a long time.  I have always like mosaics and stained glass windows, so I had to get the file, even before I had a Cameo to cut it with.  In this case this, I actually printed the file on some watercolor paper and went to town with the watercolor paints. It was great to feel like a kid watercoloring.  ;-)  A little gesso and a doily I inked with silver ink and I had a base to include to my One Little Word for 2014.  This is going to be the cover page for my book.

 And in case you were wondering what the actual sculpture is, here it is - a giant mosaic cat!  The kiddos had so much fun climbing through it like they were little kitties.

If my photos have inspired you, we would love to have you link up your project over at The Paper Girl's blog for a chance to win a little prize I have sitting here for you.  :-)  Be sure to check out the blog to see all the projects The Paper Girls' made.  I love seeing how everyone was inspired by something different!
