Scrap around the world

I am thrilled to have been invited as a Guest Educator at Scrap Around The World! So if you would like to see how I create my backgrounds why don't your pop over to Scrap Around The World's blog to get a step by step tutorial. 

This months mood board I must say did make me panic a little as I am quite often purple challenged. But there's only one what to deal with that go head on and create something purple and I am very happy I did just go for it.

''If your dreams cant scare you they're not big enough''
Tattered Angels Mist – Deep Plum, Black Cherry, Cupid. Heidi Swapp Color shine – Gold Lame
Stazon ink– BlackJo Sonja’s – Texture Paste  Prima Marketing – mini stamps (brick wall x2) 12 inch Template (Swirls)
Script & music note stamps – Stash Butterflies stamps – UNITY Crafters Workshop 6 inch Triangle Mask
Crate paper - Flea Market tags & Ephemera Pack Pink Paislee – Prairie Hill Bitty Blocks Alphas
Paper Doily - stash

For me the bit that inspired me for the background colours was the ombre cake with the graduating tones. The next thing that I focused on was the touches of gold and the triangles which I used in my layering of texture paste. 

And then finally the quote.... the perfect title.....

So I hope you like my tutorial  over at Scrap Around The World and here how I worked this months mood board there's still some time to create and enter for yourselves.
