Welcome back, everyone. let’s be inspired by our favorite theme parks!

This challenge is an ANYTHING GOES inspired by a theme park. And….

“Oh, the Places You Can Go!”

Park Hopping is hopping over to Seuss Landing this month to help with some inspiration. For additional ideas to spur some inspiration, check out our inspiration page.

At Seuss Landing, you can catch many of Dr. Seus’s most popular places and characters, located in Island of Adventures, Universal Orlando, FL, USA.

This themed park area lets you enjoy the fun and silly adventures of some of Dr. Seuss’ stories. The imagination and artistry it took to bring Dr. Seus’s world to life are spectacular!

Remember, your creation can be inspired by any theme park anywhere in the world. The photos are just for additional inspiration and fun. For more ideas, please check out our inspiration page.

Here are some inspirational projects from our Designer Spotlight, Eden, and Makira.

Eden made a necklace inspired by the Evil Queen who can be found at Storybook Dining at Artist Point in the Wilderness Lodge at Disneyworld, FL, USA.
Makira made a card inspired by the Flying Dumbo ride in Fantasyland, located at six Disney parks worldwide. Her elephant and background all come from various Tim Holtz products.
