Challenge #51: Photo Inspiration

Hi!  Kristy here, with your next Paper Girls' Challenge.  I love how random photos can inspire a project - whether it is the picture we are using on the actual project, or something you use as a jumping off point for your project.  In my case, I have 4 images that inspired me.  These are actually photos I took at the Laumeier Sculpture Park in St. Louis, MO.  I loved the mosaic look and how the colors came through.  (Check out to my blog for what the actual sculpture is!)

I used this inspiration, along with some watercolors, to create my cover page for my One Little Word book. 


The other Paper Girls came up with some wonderful projects using the photo inspiration.  Check them out! Then let photo inspire you...and be sure to link up for a chance to win a prize.

The winner of our last challenge (#50 - Home!) is:
#9 Kimberly Fordyce

 CONGRATS, KIMBERLY! Please email us at to claim your prize.

How to Join the Fun at the Paper Girls Challenge Blog:

2. We will post new challenges the first and third Monday of every month. It will be up to you to create a project that has been inspired by our challenge!
3. Your entry should be made after the challenge has been posted. We will not say no to slightly older projects but we prefer to see your new creations!
4. Create a blog post about your entry and make sure to include a link back to The Paper Girls Challenge Blog. If you do not have a blog, you may post on our Facebook page or to an online gallery and then link that photo to our linky. However, please only do this if you do not have a blog.
5. Add a link to your blog post (or Facebook /gallery photo) on our Challenge using the Inlinkz tool located at the bottom of our posts. Please make sure you link the actual post with your entry and not your blog's address.
6. Please make sure you describe how you interpreted our challenge if it isn't clear. If we can't see it, we can't count it.
7. The Deadline for each challenge will be the Saturday at 11:55pm MST before the next challenge is posted. This will give you 1 week and 6 days to complete your projects.
8. Please limit your entries to 3 per person per challenge.
9. We use to pick the winner. Prizes will be sent directly from the hostess of the challenge. At this time, we can only ship to US and Canadian addresses, due to postage rates. We hope this will change in the future. In the meantime, we love to see creations from all over the world!
10. You will have two weeks to claim your prize once we post the winner.
11. The most important thing is to have fun!
