Color inspiration journal patty 1Are you ever stuck for a color combo idea?

Start clipping photos from magazines or store ads, and keep them in a This and That Epic Day Journal for inspiration when you stamp!

For those of you who are familiar with my architectural and engineering background, this will probably make sense to you ... I LOVE Architectural Digest magazine... I even have copies of Architectural Record back to 1960!!  I have been using the photos in these magazines for color inspiration and have been putting them in my This and That Epic Day Journal!

I took a photo of my Stampin' Up! Color Coach for the cover and then embellished with Chevron Ribbon and some In Color Embellishments.

Color inspiration architectural record Of course the old magazines were in Black and White.. and I'd never cut those up anyway... but I always find it fun to look through them and look at the designs and ads!

My friend Cindee suggested that the weekly ads in the news paper from places like Target or department stores are also great sources of photo/color inspiration... what other sources will YOU USE to create your Color Inspiration Journal?

What a fabulous idea!! Thanks for sharing!


Patty! That is SO creative! I'm so drawn to color & color combinations; have been since I was quite young (I always longed for the huge box of crayola crayons with the sharpener built into the back). This is such a great idea; thanks for the inspiration.
