On the CASE: Turnabout Mashup

Aug 14, 2019Encouragement Cards2 comments

What do you do with all that “inspiration” you save?

Collecting images on Pinterest is all fine and dandy, but what do you do with it all? Do you have a system for gathering what you like about the design and using it for your own projects? One way to use that inspiration is to turn the design into a sketch that you can reference to create new projects. And that’s what I did for today’s On the CASE.

I was looking through the inspiration provided on the Concord & 9th store site and I found a card that had a nice layout. So, I took to my computer and created this sketch of the project:

Looks pretty simple, right? Let’s see the original inspiration for the sketch, and the project I created from it! Oh, and don’t forget to PIN the sketch so you can use it for inspiration in your next project!

CASE Closed!

I just LOVE sketches! I’m sure you can see how taking an inspiration project and turning it into a sketch makes for a more versatile reference tool for your projects. When you take all of the detail out of the idea and leave just the basic shapes, you’re free to let your imagination fill in the blanks!

We hope our projects today inspired you to try CASE-ing our projects, or another project you’ve been eyeing!  We hope to see you again in 2 weeks when we’ll be On the CASE again!
