TGIF everyone! Today on the blog we have a fun feature for you. We have a few of our Design Team members doing a scraplift project of each other. Scraplifting is finding others scrapbook pages as inspiration. Using the color schemes, design elements or layout designs as inspiration and taking those elements to create your own masterpiece.
First we have Stacy Cohen with her take on a page by Anna Dabrowska.
By: Anna Dabrowska
Here is what Stacy said about what she found inspiring about Anna's page.
I had the pleasure of scraplifting the amazingly talented Anna Dabrowski. Everything Anna creates is a true work of art. I chose Anna’s “2009” layout because it showcases Anna’s trademark mix media style. I was inspired by the beautiful clusters of Prima flowers, the use of colorful mists, and the circle elements that are scattered from one corner to the other. I created a page with a similar design, but I flipped it over. Like Anna, I used an array of mixed media products – gesso, paints, texture paste, mists, etc. However, I changed the color scheme to blues and greens. I carried over the circle elements by adding chipboard circles and a Prima wood clock, all painted with gesso and then coated with sparkly glitter.

By: Trudi Harrison
Here is what Trina said about looking at Trudy's work.
Here’s what I found when I really looked at Trudi’s work.
- She loves to use colour. Often bright and lights together. She will often use one small photo or a couple together. Often on an angle.
- She love banners. She LOVES layers.
- She often creates what I call a ‘cross’ design. Dividing the page into quarters or halves.
- She uses diecuts a lot.
- She often has a small amount of subtle journaling. Often spread throughout the page.
- She often mists behind her flowers (although I haven’t done that!).

Last but not least we have a layout by Sharon Laakkonen. She found inspiration from a layout created by Anna-Maria Wolniak.
Here is a little bit from Sharon about Anna-Maria's work and what she saw that inspired her.
I was really excited to participate in this "Scraplifting Each Other" challenge! My project is inspired by fellow Prima designer, Anna-Maria Wolniak.
Besides the amazing texture Anna-Maria creates with art mediums, she always has a fun, colorful, yet feminine touch to each project. It was hard to narrow down the choices of which layout to lift! Each one of her designs is simply gorgeous and so inspiring. I finally chose one she did a few months ago for our PPP challenge. I LOVE her colors, her placement of elements, and her whimsical artsy touches across the page (and what a sweet title!) I focused on these three areas and came up with my own interpretation using Prima's flocked rub-ons for a major source of texture. (Go Green tip: use the negatives from the flocked rub-ons too!)
