I love the concept behind this challenge blog....a sketch plus a mood board to take your inspiration from - and there are DT members from all over the world to also inspire you, in case you're still a little bit stuck & not sure which direction to go with from the board.
So anyways...this is this months sketch & mood board....
I took my inspiration from the vintage feel and the colours from the photo at the bottom right of the board - plus all the cameras from each image.....and I came up with this
Ive used the green, brown, honey/mustard (from the table top) & little bit of red from the image, bottom right on the board. There's also a few little stamped camera images,
as inspired by the mood board
And I've stayed fairly true to the sketch.
And now for some close ups....
My cluster....with one of the stamped camera images...that I stamped onto canvas, which gives a nice textured finish.
And another camera
My title, journaling & smaller cluster
(whooops....glue not quite dry under the journaling strips! lol)
Rather than the banner sweeping across my page, as in the sketch...I chose to place my banner shapes across the top of the layout, in a straight line. Here you can see some 2crafty fencing wire panel pieces popping out from behind my photo.
And here is another 2crafty chipboard piece coming out from my cluster - Evan's Swirl.
You may recognise the photo I've used on my layout, that I took quite a few months ago for one of the prompts for the Fat Mum Slim photo a day challenge...I think it was February. It is an old derelict house not too far from where I live...and each time I drive past it, I always wonder about it - who lived there, what did they do, where are they now (well, not them, but their descendants) etc etc....but I guess it's just one of those things that will never be known.
Okie dokie...that's all from me for now folks....2 layouts in 2 weeks - I'm doing well!! hehe
Enjoy your long weekend, for those in Aus who get it this weekend.
