Scrap Around the World is a brand new challenge site led by the uber talented Helen Tilbury. The idea is to use the mood board and the sketch to kick start your creativity.
The weathered doors reminded me of the ornate doors in Zanzibar whilst the leather and the turquoise guided my colour choice. This is my third attempt at and the result is not what I had in my mind. Does that happen to you sometimes? It got to the stage, that I just stuck it down regardless, or gave up on the idea of entering the challenge.
I tried to create a Moorish look by using the stencil with embossing powder. Then I thought it looked too uniform, so I picked some of the embossing off again. Some of the paint splats didn't work, so the removed emossing ended up as a cover up for the messy splats.
My layouts tend to be in four categories. Those I love (small amount) those I like (bigger amount) and those I tolerate (a small amount) and some, like these, which may still end up in the bin.
Well done fellow scrapper, if you've persisted with this little mini rant to the rambling end.
Now I'm off to and clean up the mess.
