Scrap Around The World April Challenge
At Scrap Around the World this month, there is a really cool inspiration board to be inspired by:
I have had so much fun playing along with these challenges in the last couple of months, and this month was no different. I have enjoyed how much I can get really arty with these challenges, and letting my creativity just flow.
For this challenge, I was inspired by the colours, and the image of the boat with the rope.
I had this photo, which was taken on a holiday in Merimbula back in 2009. I went walking one day. while my hubby and son went fishing, so I played with my camera and snapped some artistic style photos. This photo was perfect for this challenge.
I sprayed the background with some Prima colour bloom spray, then went back with some Lindy's stamp gang spray. I added some texture with texture paste and stencils, and then some stamping. I obtained a new product on the weekend at a Scrapping expo, some Decoart metallic lustre. which I rubbed over the page in different areas, fun product. I chose a selection of co-ordinating patterned papers as a mat for my photo, and added twine and cotton behind the mat. A bit of muslin added to the bottom of the mat as well, to add a bit more fibre texture. The the mica flakes to top it off.
My embellishments include the book page chevron from Charms Creations, and some Scrapmatts chipboard, including the title.
I really enjoyed getting arty with this layout and challenge.
Thanks for looking at my layout and for any comments you may leave.
