JAI #344 Inspiration

Well hello there!
Did you enjoy the Just Add Ink blog hop last week? I have discovered at least one new interactive fold I want to try! This week we are back to our regular schedule and we want you to Just Add Inspiration (from me).  Use the inspiration picture as your starting point - it might be the colours, layout or patterns that catch your eye. Here's the picture.

This picture just epitomises our summer weather right now - very bright and hot so I tried to capture the bright bleached colours and also reflect the layout.

You can see I tried to capture the layout and even some of the dominant patterns of the inspiration picture. I couldn't help taking that tiny hint of red from the band of the hat and turning that into a vibrant flower. I added lots of little touches of sparkle including splashes of wink of stella in the background, as well as swishing the flower petals with it, gleaming sequins and a Shimmery White backdrop. 

Hope you can join us, you might be experiencing the heat like me, or just dreaming of a summer to come! Don't forget to check out the rest of the projects from the DT too!
