Scrap Around The World - August

Hello bloggers. :)
Beginning of the month means new challenges and we have a beauty over at 
Here's our mood board and Sketch 

 Both the sketch & mood board images OR THE COMBO IMAGE OF BOTH MUST appear in your challenge entry.

Please check our RULES OF PLAY HERE before you begin your entry!

This is my take on the sketch and mood board.
I was primarily inspired by the cake image on the mood board 
and used the greens and orange/apricot colours of the
 folliage on the cake as a base for my layout.

Dylusions ink sprays are what I used for the background colours, along with stamps also 
by Dylusions.  I like the circular theme to the sketch and used chipboard 
circles to frame some of my photo's.
However I did substitute the main circle with the scalloped chippie frame. Creative license. ;)

My basic process for the background was to 
  • Spray first with green and some yellow and orange colours.
  • Then stamping with archival ink.
  • Lastly I used a water brush to bleach out the colour in the leaves and flowers I had stamped. This made the stamped images almost white surrounded by the coloured background.

I'm using Washi tape on a lot of pages at present although little torn strips 
like this are hardly going to put 
a dent in the stash of washi that seems to have accumulated in my scraproom! ;)

And I finished off the layout with a painted chippie tilte and a little glitter.
