Together is a wonderful place to be

Hey there!

June has been quite an easy month so far and I've managed to find the time to create a layout for the Scrap Around the world June challenge. Now, doing the layout took me quite awhile, over two long nights but I must say I'm quite happy with the result!

Here's the sketch and mood board (I love this thing, it's so artsy!):

I was inspired by the black and white right down in the left hand corner and that distressed look in the picture next to it. And of course the wonderful sketch by my PaperHaus magazine teamie Julianne is just begging for creating something pretty with!

And this is what I came up with:

This is Finnabair's Sunrise and Sunset collection and I love how she mixes oranges and pinks and purples together, and you can see how I exploited that combination.

Some close-ups:

Layering trims, a die-cut fence coated with distress ink and crackle medium, flowers and patterned paper

More layering with chipboards, metal bits, canvas, ruffles and even fruit packaging!

Recycling those sentiments on the Prima packaging. The background was done with gel medium resist, layered on top with textured paste on chevron stencil and blending gelatos with water, and followed by some distress ink on another stencil.

I wonder what happened to that button?? But it does have a very interesting texture, don't you think? The film strip was also inspired by the mood board, as was the b/w photo of my boys. Silhouetting is currently my favourite thing to do :D

Oh, and I wonder if anyone noticed anything something totally "wrong" with this layout? LOL, I'll give you a clue, the devil is in the background *wink*

I'll be doing something similar again for the PaperHaus DT blog some time in July. Keep a lookout for it!
