'Beautiful' Layout - Scrap Around The World Challenge 19
{A Romantic Vintage Mood Board by Zuzia Budakowska}

Please find my 3 Christmas giveaways HERE!

Hi everyone!  It's THAT time again at Scrap Around The World - NEW CHALLENGE TIME!
This month we have another beautiful mood board from another of our fabulous designers, Zuzia Bodakowska from Poland.  Check out the challenge post HERE & hopefully PLAY ALONG!!  We have 6 awesome prizes each & every month plus a Guest Designer Position up for grabs...

 I really loved this mood board!  Of course I love them all but this one is really very versatile
 with the different forms, colours & textures.  I was inspired by the mood board as a whole. 
 Rarely do I focus on just one image or element, although that is totally allowed. 

I was very inspired by the image of the lovely flowers & followed the main colours there - 
the pale & darker pinks & yellows.  The very dark background inspired me to use the 
black acetate doilies (along with the picture of the doily curtains too of course) & 
the text image inspired the use of my "Beautiful" title as the fonts are similar.  

I used a 6" doily stencil on my base paper but moved it around a lot, only spraying parts
 of it so as not to get the entire doily shape.  I didn't use any modelling paste or gesso 
because I wanted to keep everything really light.  I used Color Bloom Sprays on the
 base paper (pinks & yellows) then lots of splashing with white & black inks.

I used Prima 'Reception' paper from the 'Something Blue' collection. 
 I layered up Prima patterned chipboard from several collections along with
 patterned papers from Time Traveler & Free Spirit, as well as doilies & book paper.  

The frames I used on the top left of the cluster & the bottom right of it have been
 in my stash for many years so I was delighted to find a home for them on a page at last :)
