Scrapbooking Challenge :: Wilna's Inspiration Points

scrapbooking challenge :: inspired by wilna furstenberg

I love the concept of inspiration points: looking at a scrapbook page you like and identifying different points that could inspire something of your own. It can be anything from something small, like seeing a layout with pink and suddenly feeling like you would love to create a pink project to scraplifting the placement of all the elements of the page.

scrapbooking challenge :: inspired by wilna furstenberg layout ┬ę

I’ve been coming back to this page by Wilna Furstenberg in my bookmarks, thinking I loved the design but worrying that I wouldn’t like something I might make like this with my own photo because the picture makes it extra amazing. The expression of joy on her daughter’s face is just fabulous! But in coming back to the idea of inspiration points, I thought maybe I could give it a try after all… and I would love for you to give it a whirl with your own choice of points!

See more of Wilna’s work on her blog or in her page gallery.

There are so many things you can identify on Wilna’s page and use just one, a few or a whole bundle. I started with the combination of the white cardstock, the side strips and the panoramic landscape photo, even though I didn’t have a beautiful picture like her page. (By the way, if you’re starting to see a theme in these layouts, you’re not wrong, and all will be explained before the weekend is out!)

Now it’s your turn: take a little or a lot from Wilna’s page. You could easily adapt this design to include two landscape 4×6 pictures instead of one large print. You could try the tone on tone punches that I didn’t put to use on my page. Adapt as much as you like to make it work with your own style, photos and pages!

To enter this challenge, create a new project taking at least one point of inspiration from Wilna’s scrapbook page. Upload it to a gallery or your blog and leave a link on this post. Entries close at the end of next weekend!

    Wow! I agree, her photo is amazing! I love both LOS! This is just perfect for some panoramic pictures I have. None of the pics are a great quality—but they have special meaning and I just keep putting off scrapping them. Now I think I am going to get it done!

  2. Lisa M. Zepponi Says:

    oh I love her picture! It is gorgeous! I really like the tone on tone or monochromatic overall theme with a punch of color! What size is your picture? I love all these pictures of you…can’t wait to find out what secret you are hiding!

    this is perfect, since i have been wanting to try something similar to wilna’s layout!

  4. Deborah Clark Says:

    I love the inspiration points that you used. a great way to make something beautiful…yours. Thank you for the inspiration!

  5. Melissa Says:

    LOL – it does look like you are scrapping your entire acting/dancing career this weekend!

  6. Jennifer Grace Says:

    I’ve just added mine. I really loved trying out the tone-on-tone punched shapes, and the negative lettering title. Fabulous inspiration. I now want to try and get a panoramic photo like yours and Wilna’s though, I didn’t have one to hand but they both look fantastic so I shall pin them for future reference! x

    That is an amazing photo and a beautiful layout to take inspiration from.

    This Challenge was, um, challenging. What to do… and so I just went with it and “FUN” was born. I love butterflies and kept them to signify the freedom of being a kid and to act crazy. This layout and I are not having a lovefest, but I certainly don’t hate it either.

  9. Helen Overton Says:

    I love Wilna’s layout, it’s just beautiful, without including that stunning photo.
