Inspired By All The Little Things

Hello weekend and welcome to another great inspiration photo for the new Inspired By All The Little Things challenge! Love is in the air this month...with a rustic flavor this week! 

With all the wooden elements in the photo, I knew I wanted to use a wood grain patterned paper for my background.  Since the stacked up blocks had a whitewashed paint on them, I was inspired to add white texture paste using a 6x6 Mini Basketweave stencil by TCW.  After that was dry, it was time to distress the edges by tearing then sponging with some Soft Suede ink (SU).  

MFT's Accent It - Celebrate Die-Namics set has a love die which was perfect after accenting it with a puffy heart enamel sticker.  A red frame (die by Reverse Confetti - All Framed Up) added some interest and then a button with twine was needed to balance out the design.  

We're happy to have Nina Forsyth joining us as our guest designer this week!  Be sure to stop by her blog and say hello!

We'd love to see how YOU interpret this challenge, so hope to see you in the gallery!
