Scrap Around The World - June

Hello Scrappy friends, I'm here to share the layout I scrapped for the June Challenge
The team at SATW were blown away by the amount and quality of 
entries in our first challenge last month. 
Thank you so much to everyone that participated.
I wonder if we can top it this month?
It certainly is a cool sketch and lovely mood board this month as I'll show you.  
So I hope we inspire lots of you to come join in the fun with us. 

This is my page.

Here's the mood board from Design Team member Anupama Choudary, together with the sketch from our resident sketch artist Julianne McKenna-De Lumen.

The above image MUST appear on the blog post containing your challenge 

entry -you also need to mention that you are playing along with the current 

challenge at Scrap Around The World & LINK UP TO IT please,

On to some close-ups.
As you can see I was inspired by the vintage images of cameras in the mood board.
I used these Prima wood Veneer cameras as a banner under my photo similar to the sketch.

I was also inspired by some of the colours in the mood board, especially the turquoise and soft aqua.
I liked the vintage brown tones in image one and five so I added these to my layout by using 'vintage photo' distress ink and the wood grain patterned paper as a border around my layout. 
I thought my background stencil work with paint reflected the overall softness of the mood board as well.

And lastly although I decided not to use the banner across the top of the sketch I did scatter these stars across the top right corner as seen in the sketch with the circle shapes.

Now onto our amazing prizes this month!!!
