Hi Creative Friends,
August has arrived and I’m here to share the latest challenge for Scrap the Girls. This month we have another stunning mood board to be inspired by. I thought I’d draw inspiration for this month purly from the colours. The images themselves didn’t lead me to any ideas but I did love the colours, they are just so vibrant and not colours I’d normally use so I ran with that!
The colours in the mood board are just so striking don’t you think! I began by digging through my stash to find goodies to coordinate and first up I found a Thickers word “MOMENTS” by American Crafts. I really liked how it featured a combination of the purple/blue and that stunning dark red. This piece has been in my stash for a while now, so it was a great place to start my page.
Next up, I went about choosing a photo and found this one of my little miss.. isn’t she the sweetest! To go with her pretty flower I wanted to incorporate one of my new CUT to YOU cut files. This one is called Geo Floral and I love the hand drawn feel it has to it!
I backed the cut file in papers that matched the colours in the mood board, all of these are from Illustrated Faith – Gratitude Documented collection. Sure, it’s for Bible journalling, but also has a stack of basic designs perfect for scrapbooking and the colours fit the mood board perfectly!
As my cut file was an extra large element to my design, I locked this into position first. I wanted the leaf design to stem out from my photo leading the eye across the page.
Next, it was time to position that large title of mine as well. I decided to run it along the bottom edge of the page and added “Beautiful” and “Sweet” to make the title “Beautiful Sweet Moment”. I used a chipboard piece and foam Thickers which I have coloured with Shimmerz paint.
So, at this stage, the cut file, my photo and the big title were all locked in. Time to embellish! I’ve added 2 of the pretty hearts by Charm Creations who is also the sponsor for this month, some pretty bows, a butterfly and a die cut piece from Cocoa Vanilla Studios and the page was complete.
I’ll leave you with one more close up of that CUT to YOU cut file, so so loving the colours teamed with the fresh white!
I love how this page turned out… yes, they are colours I wouldn’t normally use, but that’s why it’s so fun to be a part of these challenges and I do love the result so I may even do this again!!
