June Guest Designer for Scrap Africa.


Hi! Today I am happy to say that I am guest designing with Scrap Africa.
I was the wnner of last months challenge with this page and got to prepare a page for the June reveal.


Guest Designer Badge

Here is the soft and beautiful mood board that Denise sent me:


It was a joy to create with this mood board. The colours are so yummy. Apart from the colours 
I was inspired by the stacked trays and macaroons to use layering on my page. 
I tried to add a couple of round shapes as well. 
The spidery legs of the chair are reflected in the stencilled swirl on the right hand side of my page.



Lots of Prima products here. Apart from the ever gorgeous flowers I used the leaf die and a few 
of their texture stamps.


I made some long 'branches' I had in my stash into a circle to put behind my matted photo as 
an added element of layering.


At the very bottom of my layers is a bit of cardboard box that I had rescued from the trash. 
I peeled of some of the paperlayer and  applied gesso and a few paints on top as well as more 
layers of patterned paper.


 Apart from the paints I used many different kinds of media on here. -Different brands of mists, 
water colour pencils and gel medium to stick down the different micro beads, pearls 
and art stones to name a few.


The flair button is by Prima as well as the wooden shape underneath it. I love the subtle elegance of the pink and green half pearls in the 'wilder' mixed media setting.


 Ok, so just a couple more close ups and I'm done! LOL! ;-D



Please pop over to the Scrap Africa blog HERE to see some gorgeous examples from the 
design team. I think you will feel inspired and want to take part in the June challenge as well. 
Looking forward to seeing what you create!!

Thanks for looking!!
