i thought I would pop this on here today, it’s not my usual clean simple, graphic style but I really like it.
this was a challeng over on the GoGo Facebook page back in February, set by the lovely Sarah Packer.
A five elements challenge, I used Patterned paper background, two or more photos, luggage tag, twine and Washi tape.
Thanks for checking in.
just a heads up that next month I am lucky enough to have two layouts featured in the readers galleries in JOT Magazine. Obviously I will share here once issue 18 has been published. Vey excited !
no excuses for blog posts being so few and far between.
Inspired this month by the april mood board over at Jot Magazine
I used the bottom left room photo as my initial inspiration, the border of the beautiful patterned rug gave me the idea for the patterned borders using a couple of mustard coloured patterned papers and a navy dot pattern. The float frames contain nearly all of the colour swatches for this month and reflect the floral theme of a couple of the mode boards photos. finally I added one of the quotes and the metallic alphas.
Well its been a while and I had forgotten how much of a thrill it is to have your creative work selected and published in a magazine that promotes your hobby.
