And Now a Word From Our Sponsor…

Hi everyone, Maggi here! 😀

Real quick:  Don’t forget to play along with Scrapping the Music for your chance to win a Gauche Alchemy prize pack!  You have until Midnight CST tonight so get to scrapping! 😀

Those that know me at all know that I loooooooove me some vintage! lol I especially find vintage ads very inspirational creatively speaking. A lot times they have great illustrations or bright colors or fun tag lines that I just love to use in my “gluing and sticking”. 😀 Here are some great ads for you to take a gander at, please note all ads were taken from Vintage Scans an awesome vintage resource for print magazines and other pictures.

What’s inspiring you at the moment?

  1. Love all these images Maggi 😛

    I’m seeing some brilliant billboards around at the moment – usually when I haven’t got my camera with me… I have been known to drive home, get my camera and drive back though 😛 Maybe not what the one about carbon footprints wanted maybe but there you go.

    Also loving the tutorials on You Tube. Feel like a whole new world of awesomeness has opened up this week 😀 (Yes, I am slowly being Maggified in my speech! Holy Cr@p – we need a Maggi dictionary!!)

  2. GREAT pics!! I need to stop by there more often. My inspiration comes from so many weird places. This week I am going for mood. Working on art journal pages and trying to just do what I feel. It’s a great outlet!

  3. These ads are so awesome………what a great idea for inspiration……. I seem to be at a roadblock again, maybe these will help!!!!!!!!! xoxo

  4. These are great visual pieces Maggi…:) Thanks for sharing!

  5. Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh these are just PURE YUMMINESS Maggi!! U ROCK! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)
