Today I'm starting a new tradition: Ins(paper)ation. Two words together: inspiration and paper are two magical things that make me dream, imagine and create. Every ins(paper)ation I will share with you what has inspired me to create. This time my inspiration came from a beautiful creation by Donna Downey. She covered her canvas apron with Prima flowers, just because she was curious how it looked. Each section of the apron is filled with different colored flowers, which gave me the inspiration to create a monochromatic white layout.
This layout is with my son's photos from the Jewish holiday Shavuot, celebrating the acceptance of the Torah (first five books of the Bible) on Mount Sinai more than 3000 years ago. One of the holiday's customs is to wear white to symbolize the purity of the Torah.
I used a nature motif and tried to play with different shades of white. The holiday of Shavuot is also an agricultural holiday celebrating the season of harvest in Israel, especially wheat. That is why my son wears flowers on his head and the layout is filled with flowers.
