Hi there! Another month, another challenge! This time it's my time to be hosting the Scrap Around The World challenge! I encourage you to take a go with my mood board and participate to the challenge! It would be lovely to see your project there! The deadline for this challenge is Wednesday 30th April 2014.
You can interpret the 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 colors! To be eligible for judging, please make sure you follow the rules like sharing the mood board image and mentioning Scrap Around The World in your post. Please also state how you were inspired by the board.
You can find the first reveal on the Scrap Around The World blog by following this link. Remember, we have two reveals every month and also several guest posts!
Here's my own page to the challenge! I used the colors in the board, but also was inspired by the butterflies, quote and circular elements. The quote is a perfect reminder to myself at times: don't over think just do it!
