My goodness, what a stunning moodboard for the Scrap Around The World February Challenge (created by Tatiana Sidorenko)!
I knew I wanted to do some layering work on this page, but I wasn't experienced in it AT ALL! I needed some expert tutelage, and I got it when I went to my very first scrap retreat, hosted by the marvellous Bella Carta family. They had arranged for the super-talented Beck BT (aka Beck Beattie) to host a mixed media class on the Saturday, and she has opened my eyes completely to a whole new way of preparing my scrapbook pages. She has also brought to my attention the awesomeness that is Tinby Designs Metallic Melts! Although my photo doesn't do it justice, I have used 'Glistening Snow' and 'First Light' Metallic Melts on my chipboard word "Lucky". It looks awesome!!
The layering and background work in my layout is directly inspired by the page we created in that class, and I'm even using some of the 'negative space' chipboard pieces left over as well! Whilst there is a lot more 'work' in this page, I feel that the photo is still the star, and that makes me happy!
Thanks for an awesome moodboard Scrap Around The World - it is truly stunning and inspirational!
