Everyday Inspiration with Imaginisce!


Today I have a cool post and fun project for you.  We were challenged over at Imaginisce to create a project from everyday inspiration.  Hmmmm...  What a fun idea!  I had done this only once before and it was really by accident, not a formal 'challenge'.

So, for my everyday inspiration, I selected the children's book The Very Hungry Caterpillar.  Currently it's a big favorite of the little guy who is 3.  In looking at the cover, I saw our i-Top 2.0 and brad daddies come to life with a variety of cool paper colors.

Here is my project:

Let's start with my Sun...

The yellow Makin' Waves paper was used, and I stamped the center of the Sun Snag' Em Stamp on it.  A 28mm i-Top punch was used to punch the shape.  Next, I used my d-Stress tool to give the edges a bit of wear and texture. I then used a circle die to give my sun the relief area so I could feature the "HI" letters in my alphabet strip.

Every caterpillar needs a set of antennae and to create mine, I use one of my favorite tools, the Fabric Petal Roller.  Simply use this tool with either florist wire or fine gauge jewelry wire and creating antennae for your butterflies or creatures is a breeze! I use this tool all the time!!!

I finished Mr. Caterpillar off with my i-Rock and silver tear glam rocks for feet.

What have you seen today that inspires you?  Sometimes the simplest things can trigger inspiration!  With the tools from Imaginisce, my inspiration really comes to life!  Be sure to stop on by the Imaginisce blog all week long for fabulous inspiration from the Design Team.
