I am still trying to find the time to put together some blog posts of what inspired some of my most popular designs to date and I’ll get to those soon…just need to finish up some special projects first!. However, since I had ‘INSPIRED-BY’ as a share session theme a few weeks back, I thought I’d share some of the collages I’ve put together along the way which have already been shared before on FB, of what inspired some of my pieces. This theme has always been one of my faves as it really gives one an in-depth look into a person’s creative process and sometimes, it just might open up your mind as to what YOU can create if only you just looked at things a bit differently!
April 2010 – My Son’s 5th Birthday Cake – inspired by his all-time fave movie at the time, Disney’s Cars
March 2013 – My Husband’s 45th Milestone Birthday Cake – inspired by the Disney/Pixar movie Up and a previous version of the cake done in 2010
