Scrap the Girls June challenge
I haven't done a Scrap the Girls challenge for a while, so thought I might try it out this month. The June challenge is to be inspired by the following mood board:
I felt overwhelmed by the boldness of the board initially, but took a step back, and rethought the process. I ended up using small amounts of the colours on my layout, rather than too much boldness. The colours are gorgeous together, and I am happy with the overall softer approach to this layout. My inspiration came from the colours and the word love.
I used a photo of niece Chloe, who was showing off her reading skills at a recent family catch up. Chloe has just turned 6.
I used a really funky Dylusions alpha stencil, to feed into the theme of reading. I sprayed over this with Heidi Swapp mists and Prima colour bloom. I found some words from a really old tin of K & Co words to go - remember those? I managed to find some that represented words, stories and childhood., so have placed these randomly as a layer behind the photo. A few layers of patterned papers over this and then the embellishments. I added a Charms Creations spotty mini heavenly heart, plus crochet flowers and a hand dyed Green Tara tutu flower.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and any comments you may leave.
