"Inspiration" cubes for The Craft Barn

Morning friends. I trust that you are all well.
I'm kind of playing catch up at the moment so today I thought I'd share a project that was shared over at The Craft Barn Blog last week.
If you follow the link HERE it will take you to the original post where you will find a downloadable/printable PDF with pictures and instructions.
We were working with the Sizzix cube die and this is my project.

These are my "inspiration" cubes. I'm sure that I am not alone in that sometimes I really want to be creative but can't work out where to begin LOL.
That's when I haul these out and "toss the dice" Each cube has 6 different options which cover colours, products, techniques and theme.


These pics give you an idea of what I mean. So, I toss the dice and there you go, I need to take inspiration from the last thing I pinned, work with masks and stencils, distress inks and my colour scheme is pink and yellow.......now I have a creative framework for my tag, journal page etc. It can be fun; or challenging.

Where possible I have used the specific technique/medium on my cubes when decorating them but you can see more details on the making over at the link.
Take care.
