Off the Rails Scrapbooking September challenge
The challenge set at Off the Rails Scrapbooking for September is to use this moodboard for inspiration:
The colours in this spoke of male inspired but also winter. I didn't want to scrap winter, I'm over it, so I scrapped a male themed layout. I was inspired by the word dream and the colours. I chose this photo of my son, from his karate black belt grading 3 years ago. I decided to go grungy with this, after all it takes a lot of blood, sweat and tears to get a black belt.
I chose this Rusty Pickle patterned paper - yes quite old I know, (is that brand even around anymore?), but it worked, in my opinion anyway. I roughed it up, and layed it onto the basic grey patterned paper base. I added a strip of the leftover, and then a strip of Couture Creations die release paper, some washi tape, Project Life journaling cards, tissue paper. I embellished simply with Charms Creations chevron, buttons, Birdies embellies chevrons. I die cut the title out of chipboard.
Thanks for looking at my layout and for any comments you may leave.
