Love You(rself) - Scrap Around The World


Hello! Can you believe it's already mid of the month? And what does that mean is that I get to share my creation for Scrap Around The World! The mood board this month is done by the lovely Tusia Lech. You can join the challenge and see the original reveal here (link)The deadline is Thursday 31st July.


Tusia's mood board is fun, whimsical & full of positivity with a magical feel! You can see the board on top of this post. You can interpret the mood board in any way you like. You can use just one image, several of them, all of them or even just one aspect of an image. Please also remember, that you can use any colors! 

If you wish to be eligible for judging and thus for the prizes you need to follow our 10 Golden Rules found here (link). The rules include for example that you need to share the mood board image and mention Scrap Around The World in full  in your post. It's also important that you let the team know in your post how you were inspired the board unless it's really obvious. 


Here's my creation to the lovely mood board by Tusia! I did an art journal spread this month. You did know that you can participate with other crafts than just layouts? Unfortunately we don't accept cards, but canvases and art journal pages are ok. There're a few rules so check them before you start creating!

I was inspired by the dandelion balloon and the powdery pigment. I also loved the quote in the board and the whimsical, flowing feeling that picture with the quote has. 


I started creating the page with Pan Pastels, spreading them lie waves to a piece of card stock I had cut for my base. I used the colors from the board - luscious magenta pink, pale blue and intense turquoise. I made the colors look powdery by adding white PanPastel on top. I then applied some fixative (or actually hairspray) and worked another layer on top, this time using a stencil creating a pattern on top of the wavy shapes. 

On top of the Pan Pastel background I then stamped the balloons and some texture, too. I colored the balloons with Gelatos and then reinforced the lines with different pens. I also added journaling to the background just scribbling here and there. The clouds are made using white embossing powder and a dotty stamp.
I listed the materials I used underneath here, but please keep on reading as the list of prizes is still to come!


Materials: Pan Pastels, 3rd Eye, Tattered Angels, Prima Marketing, Sharpie, Design Memory Craft, Ranger, Wow! Embossing Powders, Stampendous
