Enjoy the Journey Layout for the October Mood Board
Did you know that ANYONE can enter our mood board challenge? It's not just open to subscribers- if you are inspired by this October mood board, play along with us!
Our twist this month is "Fall". I loved the rocks and the long grass, so I incorporated those elements and well as the colors and beach vibes in my layout:
I love the Blooming Retreat paper collection from Craft o'Clock. The designs include so much texture, I find myself not wanting to add a lot fo stenciling or even too many layers. I started out by cutting a large banner as the backdrop for my focal point. I did some faux stitching on the banner and added some stitch stamps.
I added two pieces of Tres Jolie chipboard to this layout- the top one is from the kit which I added sparkly pearl embossing powder to. The other piece is one of the circles from last month's mixed media kit. I used some aged ivory embossing powder on the circle.
I added some tags and cut up some layers to frame the photo. I used a paper distresser and some distress oxide ink in frayed burlap.
There I added several of the Prima flowers and paper leaves from the kit. I also added in the Prima bronze and pink baubles in the flower clusters.
I also added the Prima art stones from this month's mixed media kit in places all over the layout.
I finished up the layout by adding a title and one of the printed chipboard frames from the kit.
