Photo Inspiration with Glitz Design

Hello again! As you probably know by now, Glitz blog challenge this month is to draw inspiration in the photo below for our projects. Easy task I thought as the photo is simply gorgeous!

For my first layout, I used the photo as a sketch and tried to recreate its design features.

The Peek-A-Boo frame made it easy to include the round element in place of the mirror and all the fussy cut flowers helped me re-create the garland on the mantle. Here's a couple of close-ups...

For my next layout, I wanted to create a wintry page using a monochromatic palette, just like in the photo. Though Glitz doesn't have a winter-themed collection, I thought blue, cream and ivory would help me scrap this photo of my daughter wearing a Santa hat (though I cropped the red part off).

I used a mini album page and a doily die  for my background. I also stamped a couple of images onto my page.

Thanks so much for visiting today. I hope you found inspiration in my post. And don't forget, Glitz Blog challenge of the month is still going on!
