A Perfect Day with Pinterest & GlueArts



Isn't it amazing how a photo can be the jumping off point for so many ideas.

Maybe the color palette gives you an idea for how to decorate a bathroom, or arrange accessories or even...create a layout!

That's just what this image Designer Leslie Ashe found AND did! She replicated the title, design, colors and captured it perfectly in this beautiful layout. Don't you agree??

I used my inspiration photo not only as a sketch, but as as a color sketch. I simply matched colors and cut strips as shown in the original inspiration photo.
Adding embellishments enhanced and topped off my layout of my beautiful daughter.
