Off the Rails June challenge - guest designer
For the June challenge at Off the Rails Scrapbooking, Charms Creations design team (me included - lol) were asked to create layouts for the June challenge, using this moodboard for inspiration:
I can honestly say I was challenged by this moodboard, but that is what challenges are for, right? I don't tend to do primary colors so well, and it was the colours that were my stumbling block. But anyway, I managed to create a layout, and in the end, it worked. I was inspired by the words family and love, by the texture on the facade of the building and by the little wood veneer people. I chose this photo of my family.
I started with a wood grain patterned paper, which I scraped some paint over and added some script with texture paste and stencil. I stamped the word love onto the background. Behind my layout, I have used a chipboard piece that is brickwork, but I flipped it and added the cut out bits as added texture to the background. I also added some wood veneer people near my journaling and the title has the word family. I added one of Charms heavenly hearts. I am quite happy with the end result, even though it was a challenge.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
