Springtime Home Decor for Heart2Heart Inspiration Challenge

This week's challenge at Heart2Heart is a photo inspiration challenge!  Its always fun to see what people pull from an inspiration photo - whether its the color, the composition, the overall feel of the piece, etc.

I loved the fabric bunting at the top of the inspiration photo, the coral pink color and the outdoors theme.  I started this piece on a blustery cold and rainy day here in Seattle where the only thing I could think about was how nice it will be when winter fades away to spring!

Here is the inspiration photo from Heart2Heart Challenges:
 I put extra layers of foam tape under just the middle of the banner so it looks like it is rippling in the air.  The layered bunting was created by misting cardstock and shaping pleats into it to make it look more like fabric.
Close up of the tree and flowers.  To get a larger tree canopy I stamped three of the tree tops from Splendid Day and pop dotted them in layers.
I used lots of little paper flowers and leaves, bitty sparkles, bitty pearls and buttons to make my scene.  I love these kinds of project because you can pull things from your stash to use up!  

Our inspiration photo is just so full of details!  I hope you'll join the fun and post something you create to the Heart2Heart Challenges site!  Can't wait to see what you pull from the photo!

If you'd like to make this project, get these supplies:
Stamps:  Spendid Day (tree, plane), American Celebration (the stripes on the blue circles), Bohemian Alphabet
Other:  Liquid Glass, Bitty Pearls, Bitty Sparkles (some were colored pink with a Sharpie), Red Assortment Buttons, Paper Flowers (retired), Ultra Fine Tipped Black Sharpie, Watercolor Pencils (coloring leaves on the tree)

Your home decor project is precious! It looks like it took a LOT of time to make. I really love the "fabric" bunting and can't wait to try it for myself. Thanks for the inspiration!
