Here is an example of inspiration Lynnette saw on Pinterest and the resulting page.
Lynnette says, “The design of Guitar Hero was inspired by a piece of art I pinned awhile back on Pinterest. I especially loved the repeating and overlapping scallops so I translated those to my page by layering patterned paper circles over one another. This layout is also a great example of an awesome themed digital kit inspiring the topic of my layout – it just begged me to scrap that photo.”
Lynnette is a child-free, tech-lovin’ digital scrapbooker. She started digital scrapbooking in April 2006 while living overseas in Seoul, South Korea and has been hooked ever since. In 2007, she was voted the winner of the Digital’s Next Top Scrapper competition at Peppermint Creative.
