I'm always keen for at least one challenge each month and this month my favourite comes from Scrap Around the World. Their Design Team each month create and host a moodboard for the monthly challenge and this month Tusia Lech has put her talents together and created a beautiful board for inspiration.
Here is my take on it.
And here is the moodboard. It's such a light and bright collection Tusia has put together. I immediately thought of my sons beautiful girlfriend, Kendall. She is such a breath of fresh air. Her smile lights up a room and warms my sons heart which is all a mum can ask for her boy.
She has had some big changes career wise in the last couple of weeks and I felt that the quote Tusia chose to put on the moodboard suited perfectly. It is also a great attitude to have in life and one I think Kendall would agree on.
Recently, I've really enjoyed putting together process videos of my creations. I love the challenge of the editing (still improving with each video) and I love inspiring people.
Some close ups and materials I've used.
The background paper is from Kaszazz's Vintage Flourish collection it's called "Jasmine Lee". I've stacked old book pages and old maps for my photo matt. I love to use old bits and pieces as much as I can. the maps have been selected carefully to represent the places Kendall has lived in her short life.
I've added my title using 2Crafty Chipboard "Smile Loopy Font" word. I primed it in white Gesso and then coloured it using the Distress Inks.
The background is a combination of Heidi Swapp Color Sprays and stencilling with Distress Inks over the Triangle's stencil from Crafters Workshop.
Embellishments include some paper scraps, a potty girl from Calico Studio, some little Prima flowers and a Kaszazz floral embellishment.
I hope you've enjopyed my quick little run down of this page. If you want to see how it all comes together then scroll up and click on the process video. it can also be found in the tabs along the top of my blog.
Thanks for popping in.
