Inspired Translation // 1

I'm so excited to be sharing a new bi-weekly column with Jessica from Creative Index! When Jessica approached me and asked if we wanted to collaborate, I was so excited! We came up with the idea of Inspired Translation - we would take one image and one quote, and create a design around it.

The quote:
All life is an experiment. The more experiments you make the better.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson

inspired translation | the inspiration

My Translation:
inspired translation | kyla

And that's my translation! The image was so fun and cheerful, I really enjoyed using these colors and patterns.

Don't forget to head over to Jessica's blog and she how she translated the image!! I can't wait to continue this series and share the designs we come up with :)
