Hope you all had a great weekend! I spent mine catching up on work (omg, I hit inbox zero, which hasn't happened in the history of...ever) and squeezing in some fun. One of the projects I was working on over the weekend involves a fun new addition to our workspace...a brand new desktop computer! Not just any computer though, a Sprout HP computer, complete with dual touch screens, a high res 3D camera, and just about the coolest creative workspace concept I've ever heard of. Let's take a look...
An "HP Consultant" actually delivered and set up my new Sprout for me. She also spent an hour giving me a crash course at the software (Windows 8 was totally foreign to me), and all the amazing features of this bad-ass machine. It's basically a creative's dream. The most amazing part is that you can place any object on the touch-mat, scan it, and images of the objects immediately become part of your Sprout workspace. You can then resize, edit and move the images around like you would on an iPad. It's so cool.
This way of creating is so different, it definitely takes some getting used to. I knew exactly what I wanted to create for my first project taking Sprout for a spin. I've been collecting inspiration for wedding details, and while Pinterest is great, sometimes I'm inspired by things IRL rather than online, like in a magazine, or a piece of vintage jewelry. I decided to create a collage of some of these mishmash pieces I'd been clipping and saving.

I scanned some pictures from BRIDES mag, a newspaper clipping my mom had saved for me, and a vintage necklace. I also saved a few photos I'd found on Pinterest.
And I created the below little inspo collage! It's so fun "flicking" each image down from the top screen to the touch-mat and moving things around.
Stay tuned for more creativity courtesy of Sprout!
A huge thank you to HP for the new computer and for sponsoring this post! And thank you for supporting the brands that support WTFab!
