My "Scrap Around the World" DT Reveal
December Challenge
"Timeless Beauty"

Hello there everyone, thanks for calling by. Today I have my DT reveal for
the December challenge at "Scrap Around the World" blog.
Scrap Around the World
This months challenge is hosted by Design Team member
Zaneta Glowa aka Zanka from Sweden.

 Loove this mood board.
(click on pic for a close up)

Feel free to interpret Zankas mood board in any way you like, using one image,  
several of them, all of them or even just one aspect of an image,
using ANY COLOURS! Our sketch is OPTIONAL!! 

 Please let us know HOW YOU WERE INSPIRED!! 

I  used the sketch but I flipped it over & took a few liberties with it !!!!
I also took my inspiration from the gorgeous patina frames in the top left 
of the mood board & the aquas & purples from some of the 
paper rolls & then I just ran with it.
I have used a selection of beautiful chipboard frames from
2 Crafty chipboard,  
three to be precise & simply cut them in half
& just poked them in here & there.

I have given my frames a faux "patina" look like the ones on the mood board.

Lots of background treatments using various mixed media & I have to say I am
really enjoying re visiting glitter. Haven't used it since last Christmas but I am
loving using it here teamed with rusty looking corrugated. A total opposite but
I think it works.

Lots of gold accessorising for an opulent feel, again all drawn from the fabulous mood board.
I hope I have inspired you to perhaps join in this months challenge at
"Scrap Around the World".
They always have such fabulous prizes on offer as well as lots of great
inspiration from all the DT girls. Make sure you check it out.
Until next time....
