Today, while trying to bring the inspiration spirits into my creative space, I decided it was time to visit the Basic Grey BG TV videos and see what they had to offer today to get me inspired. Just taking a glance through Basic Inspiration level 1, not watching the whole video, I was reminded of several things that I haven’t done in a while. I haven’t used a pen to draw, much less draw dotted lines or around a photo or journaling box. I haven’t used paper in smaller pieces as part of the layouts. Sometimes, it takes looking at manufacturer websites to draw inspiration.

This weekend, I started a layout, still in process, using paint which I haven’t used in a long time. We forget what we have in our stashes and generally use our “go to” products. For me, that’s normally a couple of ink pads, paper and some American Crafts Thickers. I do cut letters & shapes to add things too. But we need to throw some playtime into our creative mix every now and then.

So have you checked out some of your favorite manufacturer’s website lately? They have design teams to give creative ideas with their products so take advantage of it!
