JUNE Challenge YOUrself Blog #42 - "Starry Starry Night"

Hello everyone! It is time for another Super Awesome Challenge from our friends at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!  There are so many ways you can use this work of art prompt to inspire YOU!  Just be sure to use a photo of YOU in the layout!  I can't wait to see what you will come up with!!

Here is your inspiration for JUNE:
I see so many "things' in this artwork - buildings, city, vacation, water, blue skies, I wonder what will inspire you??

For my layout - I chose to use a selfie that I took of myself and then applied a filter to, from an App on my phone. It was taken at night, and the inspiration photo reminds me of a scene at night.  I decided to also go with the 3 color scheme, selecting Black, White and Gold.  See - it is all about how YOU are inspired!

Here are some close ups for you!
So, I got a new Cricut Explore Air 2 machine recently and my first project was to create this title!  I love how it came out!!  

I used a stencil and some Tonic Studio's Nuvo Mousse to create these awesome 3D stars!!  LOVE how they came out!! So much fun!!

I've had this Tim Holtz Film Strip for quite some time - so happy I got to use it for this layout!
While you can't see any stars in this photo - it was certainly a "Starry Starry Night!"

LOVE these Tim Holtz "Small Talk" stickers - they may be "small talk" but they sure carry some BIG messages of Inspiration!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I really hope I have helped to inspire you to play along with us this month at the Challenge YOUrself Blog!  Come on - Get Scrappy With It!!
