Pinterest boards and try to recreate them or use them for inspiration. And, I challenge you to do the same. Find a pin that gets your creative juices going; be it a craft tutorial, recipe, style inspiration, or organizational tip and run with it. I encourage you to share your results on your blog and then link it up here. Fun, right!?
Let me start by thanking Jenna at The Painted Apron for linking up her yummy-looking Zucchini Garlic & Gruyere Galette last week.
Now for what I had planned for this week. (Please go to the original sites to pin or otherwise share these images, above and below.):
|Download and use the fonts from 1. 10 Favorite Font Combos from Yellow Bliss Road 2. Favorite Free Halloween Fonts from Ella Clair Inspired 3. Lovely Fonts from Ann Meer Design|
|Parmesan-coated Potato Wedges from MyRecipes|
|Yarn-wrapped print blocks from Print & Pattern's review of Print Workshop|
Here's how they turned out:
I decided to break down the fonts and just use some of them to make a few images. For the Favorite Font Combos from Yellow Bliss Road, I made another Pinning with Purpose banner.
Free Halloween Fonts from Ella Claire Inspired had me in a Halloween-y mood, so I went with it.
By the time I got to playing with one of the Lovely Fonts from Ann Meer Design, I went a little crazy with my photoshop.
The Parmesan-coated Potato Wedges from MyRecipes were added to my menu easily enough. I had some red potatoes that needed to be used so I went with those instead of the recommended baking potatoes and sweet potatoes.
Lastly, I've been obsessed with my Gelli Plate since it came in the mail. When I saw the yarn-wrapped block as part of Print & Pattern's review of Print Workshop I wondered how well that texture would work on the plate. Pat gave me a scrap piece of wood from his shop and I cut a length of yarn.
Now to start planning for this week. Here's what I've selected from my boards to try out:
- Football season is in full force, and Alabama will have their first in-conference game this coming weekend against Florida. I'm planning ahead for what we'll snack on during the game and this French quarter cheese ball from Plain Chicken off my FOOD | Party Food board looks pretty tasty.
- I've been pretty lax in my jewelry-making this past week so I want to make sure I get my hands on some beads this week. The Wire wrapped wristlet tutorial from Shiny Little Things off my Jewelry tutorials board seems pretty fun.
- I don't pin much to my Printables board, but I never seem to get around to printing them either. So that I have some items on hand to play with when the collaging bug hits, I figure it might be time to print out a few. I'm starting with these three:
hi Hope! Thanks so much for the shout out! That yarn stamp thing is really cool! Love it! Have a great week!ReplyDelete
Jenna, I had a lot of fun with all my pins for this past week! I can definitely see the yarn stamp as something someone as artistically inclined as yourself might like. I'm glad I shared it! Thanks so much for linking up again. I do appreciate it. :)Delete
I pinned the potato wedges. And I like how you cannot predict what will come out of the yarn wrapped blocks. I like the fonts but am too lazy to play with them :) And the only thing that spoils my vacation is that I cannot participate :( Well, just kidding - I'll make up for my absence :)ReplyDelete
i have a gelli plate that i haven't ever used. not sure i get it! keep meaning to go on youtube and get ideas. loved using the wood block of string for texture!ReplyDelete
Kecia, I definitely recommend watching some Gelli Plate videos. I happened upon one by Tiffany at Southern Gals Designs and then HAD to have one. I'm still not sure what I'll do with the prints, but it's so fun making them.The wood block worked great. Now I just want some different size blocks. I'll have to plunder in the hub's shop for more! ;) Thanks for popping in.Delete
