Hi everyone....gosh I've been a little bit quiet here on my blog lately, but be assured I have been a busy little bee scrapping behind the scenes, and will be sharing those creations over the coming weeks :)
Today I have a layout to share that I've created for All About Scrapbooks, using
October Afternoon's "Public Library" collection, and is based on the Scrap Around The World September mood board. It's been a while since I played along at SATW, and I must say that I did enjoy scrapping with their fabulous mood board this month :)
My first layout using this range is, as the collection name suggests, library themed....and is of the great library at Trinity College in Dublin known as.....
I am really LOVING creating with this collection <3 and especially love all the brown tones in this page....and to help break it all up a bit, I've used some tiny bits of red & mustard from different papers & the Tidbits pack of diecuts. I will be showing over the coming weeks that this collection is really quite versatile & easily scrapped for other themed layouts :)
Here is the September mood board at Scrap Around the World
The image of the books is what inspired me to scrap this photo of the Longroom in Trinity Library - there are soooo many old books in just this one room, that it is totally mind blowing, and so worth going to see! I was also inspired by the little cogs inside the heart, and have included a 2Crafty cog/gear in my cluster plus one of the brads I've used has a cog shaped pattern on it.
Here are a few close ups....
I hope you have enjoyed seeing my layout as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
