Spending time in nature can rejuvenate the soul while inspiring the designer as well. Let your glorious summer vacation take your creativity on a journey! Let’s look at Ashley’s take on the inspiration pillow. Obviously, the trailers on her card mimic those on the pillow, but look closer, and you can see that she’s followed the lead of the denim portion on the bottom of the pillow on her card as well. Even her placement of the cork flag is a nod to the burlap flower in just about the same position.
