Escape... or how I created a page inspired by a challenging moodboard

Good morning everyone!
Yesterday was a productive day for me: after coming home for my night shift at the airport, I didn't have much sleep, so I thought to scrap a bit.  I was very tired, so not being sure about what would come out, I didn't want to create something for a DT commitment, but anyway I did want to scrap.
I thought "why not play with a challenge?".  Ok!

Now Scrap Around the World is a challenge blog that I play with almost every month, either as a member of a Guest DT or as a simple contestant. As far as I remember, there has not been a single moodboard that I didn't like!  Plus quite a few of my scrap friends are part of the awesome DT, whose work inspires me soooooo.... I went to see what's on!


And I found this challenging, impressive moodboard by Tatiana Sidorenko




***the underlined sentences explain how I got inspired by the moodboard***


That was a challenge (taking into account my fatigue)!!!!  Bright green is a colour that I don't use very often, but after I read Helen Tilbury's explanation

"There are so many ways you can be inspired by this board!   The soft colors - 
 Beige, brown, white, teal &  shades of green & yellow. Or how about the
textures -  from the metal elements, rust, weathered & worn wood, sand, 
wood grain / panels, foliage, swirls & the  softness of a head full of curls? "

I thought to myself "that's worth trying"!
So I took a closer look of the elements - romantic mood, flowers, a beautiful quote and this amazing fairy photo down left!  Wow!!  Let's play!!!!


I decided to use the colours that Helen described: beige, brown, white, teal, green & yellow.
The perfect 7 Dots Studio Collection that includes all these colours is the 9th Wave. Bingo!




I wanted to include a wooden element in my page, coming from the beautiful down middle photo, so I painted a 2 Crafty Chipboard Hessian Patch Panel with golden 13 Arts paint and used it as a base for my cluster.  

For my journalling, I got inspired by the lovely down left photo and used the following quote "Come, fairies, take me from this dull world, for I would ride with you upon the wind and dance upon the mountains", which complemented the style of my photo (isn't the dress a fairy's cloth?)

Let me say that for my background I used 2 masks that I sprayed and stamped, to create a mixed-media background with watercolours, according to the rules of the ScrapVell challenge:

I hope you like my page! Thanks for stopping by and for your warm, encouraging comments!

Have a nice day!
