Scraps of Elegance Guest Designing for Scrap Around The World!

What an exciting day! Today is the reveal of the August 2014 Challenge 16 Mood Board for Scrap Around The World, and it was designed by the lovely Marilyn Rivera! Here is the link to their challenge:

 Isn't it just beautiful? So many different items to inspire you! I just love the whole board! This is actually my first time using a mood board so it was quite fun for me!

Now I will tell you what from the mood board inspired me! Quite a lot actually! I was first inspired by the aqua color of the dress in the top left corner.  I was also inspired by the cork board and the spools of thread, and the gold dress. Below is my creation and detailed photos, I will warn you, this post is quite photo heavy!

I decided to make a reverse canvas/layout, something I've wanted to do for quite some time but just didn't have the right challenge for it......till now!  I used the SOE August kit, Chasing Rabbits, and had saved this paper particularly for this challenge. I did lots of fussy cutting, and I used the Main Kit and the flower add on.

 Here is a view of the side and all the details. I used a couple of stencils, and used some homemade modeling paste and some Viva Decor Inka Gold, to bring in the gold from the mood board.  I also used some Lindy Stamp Gang spray in pink. You get to see some good dimension from this view!

 I used the pretty paper from the kit to line all edges of the canvas, and used a 12 x 12 sheet of cork to cover the back. I used lots of flowers from the add on and from my stash. I used the Inka gold on the Prima resin letters to give more definition.

 I love these vintage spools of thread that a friends daughter gave me from a garage sale she went too! Perfect for the mood board! I dry brushed gesso over most areas of this GDT piece.

I have lots of pretty layers under the photo, unfortunately they got covered by the all the layers.... you can see a few poking out on the right side of the photo. 

thanks so much for stopping by, I hope you enjoyed my piece for the SATW August mood board! Don't for get to go to their site to see all the other GDT creations!  Here is the link to their blog once again!

Be Blessed!
