October Inspiration and Free Printable

I think one of my favorite things about blogs is to read where and how people are inspired in their creativity.  One of my favorite places to be inspired from is fashion!  Kristie is the queen of fashion/makeup and trends, so I thought it would be SO fun to turn to her for a new collaboration. Kristie and I are going to be teaming up each month to bring you a new feature. Monthly Inspiration. This feature will include inspiration from Kristie in the form of fashion, makeup, or anything else she is inspired by..and then I will take that inspiration and turn it into some sort of printable piece of art. Each month will be different..some months we may both start with the same color palette or room decor inspiration and both take it from there. However it comes together, you are sure to be inspired each month! For this first month, Kristie put together a polyvore board of inspiration, which you can read all about HERE and keep reading to see what I came up with!

October Inspiration

From Kristie’s awesome board I then was inspired to make this: 

I always love to get inspiration from the color front, but this month, I loved the lace shirt that Kristie put on the board. It definitely played into my print as well as the color. Have you ever thought how fonts play out in design? I am truly inspired by fonts that can mimic the idea or feeling of the inspiration. You can see the purple font is thin and clean, just as the pants are and the yellow font is bold and demands a little presence, much like those cute shoes.  Read about Kristi’s outfit HERE.  Now we can talk about the quote. I really love these words and truly believe them and hope you realize just how amazing YOU are too!  Print this out and put it on in a frame so you can see it and remember it..and then print another off to give to someone else who needs to remember it too!  I am so excited that once a month Kristie and I will be working together on this and hope it pushes you creatively as well. Use this fashion board and print as a catalyst for your next project and see what you come up with!
