Scrapping Outback April Challenge
This month at Scrapping Outback, the challenge is to use the following for inspiration:
The colours in this are lovely, even though purple, which I really am not fond of. This inspiration picture threw me, I fiddled with this one for a really long time, needing to set it aside for a whole week, and then come back to it. Even when I came back to it, I was still fiddling doing the same thing. In the end, I got rid of a couple of things I was trying to work with, that just didn't work on this, and went back to the basics.
I chose to scrap this photo of myself as a 1 year old.
I used a TCW stencil with mist in the background, and then stamped with this really cool Carabelle stamp, which changed the whole background instantly. I used these old Crate paper papers, as they were the right colours, I had nothing else. I had this lovely acetate frame, which when added, again changed everything, and then it came together. All I needed then was the embellishment, and for this I chose a Charms Creations mini star, and journal it's, flair and flowers from D-lish Scraps. The chipboard piece I have added is a small doily by 2 Crafty.
In the end, I was very happy with the way this layout turned out, much better than when I started it.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and any comments you may leave.
