Off the Rails Scrapbooking May Challenge
This month at Off the Rails there is this mood board to be inspired by:
I loved the graphic images in this mood board, but found the red and pink colours a bit tricky to match. I still don't think I got them right. I was inspired by the butterfly and the vintage books, and also the quote, although twisted my take on this with my title - treat yourself.
Anyway, I chose to scrap this photo of my parents from when they were visiting Melbourne at Christmas time. We had a day out in the Yarra Valley, and seriously they were like kids in a lolly shop at the chocolaterie - buying up big, and enjoying a you beaut icecream which is a specialty of the chocolaterie.
For my layout background I used a TCW stencil and texture paste to create the butterflies, and the peacock design, dylusions ink spray and Heidi Swapp colour sprayed over the background and texture paste. I also added a subtle amount of stamping to the background. I used patterned paper from Crate Paper and Stampin up behind my photo. My embellishments include the vintage paper heart from Charms Creations, and a paper lollipop flower made by Chellejamo.
Thanks for looking at my layout and for any comments you may leave.
