Pretty Little Studio Travel Well

Do you ever feel like your creativity could use a little jump start?   Pretty Little Studio has you covered with our Pinterest Inspired photo that you can find here on the Pretty Little Studio blog every Thursday! Here's the inspiration photo for today!

So what do you love about this one? The colorful straws? The raindrops? How about those little clouds or the clear mason jars? I tried to incorporate all of these elements into my design.   I started thinking about clouds in the air, and then travel.  This one is for my daughter who will be taking a trip soon.. and while I will miss her it will only be for a little while!
Let's start with those stripes on the straws - pink yellow and green! The same colors I found in my background paper from the Baby Claire Collection! I topped that with a scrap of ledger paper from the Marigold Collection. This specific pattern paper is called Pepperbush - it's a great neutral that you can mix with any of the collections.

I wanted to add some clear elements - inspired by the mason jars so I added a Clear Salt Lake Shipping Tag and Clear Pacolet Geo Tag from the Let's Go Collection. The geo tag Flair from the Fresno pack shines like a gem!
Yes - I had to add some fluffy clouds - just like the inspiration photo -I picked neutral shades from the Die Cut Water Color Rain Clouds pack. If all you have are brights left in your pack just flip one over and use the reverse side! I topped the clouds with a die cut sentiment from the Wonderland Winter Wishes Word Tags. The pack contains loads of sentiments sized perfectly for journaling OR card making!
I was going for a collage look on my card so the more embellishments the better. The Define Travel tickets pack has great sentiments. I thought this one was perfect for my travel themed card. I added a sprinkle of wood veneer hearts (my raindrops) and this one is ready to give!

I hope this one gets your creativity kick started or perhaps helps you see these products in a new way! Have a great day!
