ScrapAroundTheWorld

My dear friend, Helen Tilbury has started her very own challenge site! It's "ScrapAroundTheWorld" and it's an awesome challenge site! I wanted to make time to participate in this one! Here are the details:


May 2013 Challenge 1

Each month we will present you with a mood board & a sketch, together with a mood board/sketch combo image for you to save to your computer & upload to your blog when taking part in our challenges.  


This month we have Agnieszka Bellaidea to thank for this gorgeous mood board!

She is our challenge host this month & will be monitoring the comments on this post
 & answering any questions you may have (also directly in the comments).


All you need to do is be inspired by the mood board (in ANY way) 
& use our sketch as your starting point.  


How to use our sketches

As you would any other sketch.  We would like to see that it definitely inspired you & was your 'starting point' but you can 'make it your own' by flipping it, turning it, inverting it & moving things about if you like.  You can also change the photo orientation and number of photos to be as few or as many as you like.  



How to use our mood boards

Our mood boards are for your INSPIRATION only.  You can be inspired by one of the images, all of the images, or any number of them, or even parts thereof. For example, on this board you may be inspired by the colours (either all of them or just one, two or more) but you do not have to use any colours on the board if you don't want to.  Other aspects of the mood board that could inspire you are, for example, the beads, circles, fringing, cracks, texture, leather, chandeliers, turquoise, rust (colour or rusty elements) ie brass/metal.  Pink, purple, organic shapes, swirls, feathers, fluff, fibres, distressing, ombre effects, flowers, bows, lace, flower-soft & filigree work (fine cut embellishments such as laser chipboard with detailed designs).
It's entirely up to you!  Be Inspired in any way!!


Now, here is my take on the challenge. These are pictures of our youngest ds and his girlfriend. I think they're so cute and sweet together!


Here you can see the chippie birdcage from Imaginarium Designs that I embossed with Ultra Gold High embossing powder from Suzy West. I added some tiny blooms and cut out pieces of the Graphic45 paper to embellish, I used the little blooms and birds and such. I used Graphic45 Secret Garden papers.


I also used baker's twine on the tags and around the photo mat as well. I used a sticker sentiment for the journaling.  I also added some buttons and pearls.


 Here you see that I added pop dots for dimension.


Another close-up of the detail.




The title chippies are also Imaginarium Designs. I just used a purple marker to color them and added liquid pearls by Ranger.


One last close-up of some detail and liquid pearl accents.



Thanks so much for stopping by and please check out this great new challenge site!!!
