Blog Hop Inspiration

Nearly every artist is inspired by color, illustrator Adolfo Serra included. This talented artist recently shared these pages from his sketchbook and I found them so unbelievably inspiring. From the colors to some of the layouts showcased, there is so much to take away from this month's inspiration piece. Maybe try a new to you technique for layering colors or creating backgrounds. Whatever you do, have fun with it! We look forward to seeing you then!


 -Participating bloggers can add their link to the appropriate list here anytime between 10am ET and 11:30pm ET on October 25th within the InLinkz list below. The title of your post should be "Papertrey October Blog Hop Challenge".

Marcia Hill created this beautiful sprig using a unique color scheme that really catches your eye. The white string paired with the white sentiment strip is the perfect balance.


Mona Pendleton made an incredible holiday creation using this month's color inspiration. I love how she used the large snowflake as mat for her festive Christmas tree.

Kathryn A created an awesome background based on the inspiration. It really sets off her sentiment and makes it the center of attention.
