Life.Paper.Scrapbook - Mood Board Apr/May challenge.
It has been simply an AGE since I did an A4 page. I recently got some watercolour paper....which is not QUITE 12 inches square, so I cut it up to make it A4 size & got out my Gelatos, cos I had a Plan! Here's the Life.Paper.Scrapbook Mood Board:
And my plan was those top L chevrons...that, & some of the colours & the spots were my inspiration for the WONDERFUL photos I got of Spring Tulips from my scrappy friend Sanna. I ADORE them - but cannot grow them here...so it's a really special treat for me to scrap them! In fact, I challenged her to scrap the same photos...not sure whether she'll get to do so or not!
I love little scrappy 'fun' challenges like that:) Anyways, here's my 'take':
Trinket Track flouro dots, a spring tab from Elle's Studio....little bits of Heidi Swapp splattered paper I had hanging around, with Purple Pumpkin ticket & doily peeking out as well.....
I have no idea where I got these metal tabs....on the background I've heat embossed over my gelato bg just to add some texture...thank you Lizzy C for the bg stamps!!! And where the 'wonder' word is, WERE 3 stamped hearts that looked puke-worthy....so they got covered up quick smart. Didn't want to make y'all sick!!!!
A cute Purple Pumpkin button...or two! And can you see the cloud stamps behind the embossing? They're from 3rd Eye...the heart brads are Old. But I love 'em!!!
Some of my Motex tape....a few hand drawn hearts. Strangely, they looked better than the stamped ones!
The whole page....this took me days....dunno why....most unusual for me, too! But I am happy with it now - I just ADORE these bright colours & the chevrons on the bg worked exactly how I wanted them to, so that was a good thing:):)
Thanks for taking the time to check this one out. You can put your sunglasses away now!!!!
