Scrap The Girls October challenge - Awesome Day
This month at Scrap the Girls, the challenge is to be inspired by this moodboard:
I love the colours in this moodboard. I was inspired by that and also the texture in the wall - I used wood panelling. I also loved the feathers and the butterflies, and chose words out of the quote.
I used this photo of myself, my daughter and my friend Vicki, when she was visiting in March this year, photo taken at a quirky scone cafe in Melbourne, called Jam and Cream - best scones ever. They have out the back of the cafe a vintage caravan, painted pink, as well as cute plants and chooks. So retro.
I tried to create a bit of a retro feel to my layout. I kept the layout fairly clean - unusual for me, but my mojo was missing, so mixed media was not something I could use in the frame of mind I had at the time.
I made a cluster using a variety of flowers, resin butterfly and flower, and a vintage Charms Creations lollipop. I also added die cut feathers to the cluster.
I also added some seam binding that has been dyed with Prima colour bloom spray.
I added a small terrific tab from Charms Creations above the photo, and made another cluster to the top of the page, with some more small die cut feathers.
I finished off with some splatters of white paint.
Despite the simplicity of the layout, I am happy with it's overall result.
Thanks for looking at my layout, and for any comments you may leave.
