Scrap around the World - January Mood Board.

I feel very honoured at the moment.... my entry from Decembers Scrap around the World has allowed me to share with you (next month) how to create a mixed media background so stay turned. I have also created a layout for this months mood board. I must say I am starting to get the hang of mood boards, I was discussing it with another scrapping friend the other day.... I had trouble picking what elements to include in a mood board... but for those who are struggling just keep at it... you will get the hang of it!!!

''In this Life''
AC cardstock, MME pp, Dusty Attic Chipboard, Prima Flowers and Stamps,
Tattered Angels Mist, Heidi Swapp Colour Shine, Drew Drops,
Washi Tapes, Gesso.

So I have taken a lot of inspiration from the mood board... where to start!!! I loved the natural wood table, so I have included wood grain pp and also washi tape.  The flowers taken from the tea cups and in the bikes basket and the white flower bouquet.

I have included drew drops and gauze to mimic the glass balls and fishing net. I also took inspiration of the colour palette as well love the washed out whites and greys and I wanted the blue to pop to help support the photos.

So this is my take on Scrap around the Worlds January Mood board... and I cant wait to share with you my tutorial next month!!!!!
