Amazing Sunset
(Scrap Around the World Mid Month Reveal)

YAY!  It's my turn to share my take on the SCRAP AROUND THE WORLD
July mood board challenge that went live on July 1st!

Take a look again at the gloriously optimistic and brilliant mood board 
designed by fellow Canadian ambassador, Pam Ellis!

Click HERE to see the project reveal of the first part of the SATW DT
and HERE to see the mid-month reveal that premiered today, including yours truly!

I was immediately drawn to this vibrant and happy mood board!
I tend to veer away from the bright colours when doing mixed media work on my layouts
as I'm never really sure I will like the finished result as they can be so unpredictable,
but I have to say that I'm very happy with how this page turned out.

Because of the nature theme of all the images in Pam's mood board,
I wanted to pay tribute to nature as well by using pictures of 3 exquisite sunsets
and then letting the colours seep through my embossed background.

This layout enabled me to also use up some of my HUGE stash of single paper flowers
that I have in a big basket which I tend to forget about sometimes
because I opt for the brand names. :)

Nature is just amazing, isn't it?
A constant source of inspiration!!

Hope you like my take on the SATW July mood board!
