Found Inspiration - Flamingo Scraps

Hi Flockinistas!
It's Alicia, here again with another layout using Heidi Swapp's Serendipity line.  :)  Sometimes, inspiration comes from the strangest places.  While flipping through a magazine, last fall, this ad really something that caught my eye, so I kept it in a binder so I could refer back to it when the time was right.

Initially, I thought that it would be the ombre effect of the blue pellets that would be my jumping off point, but when I saw the "sun rays" in the yellow Heidi Swapp Serendipity paper, it brought this ad to mind,and I had to dig it out.

I traced the lines of the "rays" with a yellow marker to define them a little better, without making them standout too much.  In place of the product in the ad, I flipped the design and placed my picture on the right side, instead of the left.  The letters that I dug out of my stash for the main part of my title play on the ombre effect, like the pellets in the ad.

Here is the side-by-side comparison... not an exact replica, but you can definitely see the inspiration that was sparked by the ad.

Don't forget to always be on the look out for inspiration!  
Until next time!
