Studio 75 Challenge 12 - Mood Board Challenge
Growing Your Wings Layout

Hi everyone!  How are you this week?  I sure hope you are good!  Things my side are moving along quite fast right now.  For those of you who connect with me on social media you will be more in the know on what is going on my side at the moment.  We are enjoying our final GRANDE FINALE CHALLENGE at Scrap Around The World this month as I am closing the site down to concentrate on my new adventure - which is moving home & hopefully starting a new life in a new country - exciting times ahead!  So 
PLEASE play along if you can - we have 22 prizes up for grabs & a Wall of Fame featuring 20 players! 

Today I am here to share the new challenge from Studio 75 in Poland, with you.  
You can view the challenge, that went live a couple of days ago, HERE.  
This month the challenge is based around the beautiful mood board below.
The rules are really simple - you can create ANYTHING papercrafty based
on the mood board colours & include any elements you like from it too.

I really LOVE this board!  The colours AND the elements are all so lovely & soft!

Creating with it was an absolute PLEASURE!  You DO NOT have to use any
Studio 75 products, as they can be hard to come by outside of Poland BUT 
if you do please let us know what you have used!  And remember that the 
merit chosen winner will win 30zloty worth of their choice of goodies
 in the Studio 75 online store - so you can get some of this sought-after
product for yourself if you win!  Please do not back-link - all projects 
must be NEW & you can submit up to 3 entries but as separate posts.

 I used all the blue Studio 75 Primo papers HERE - all Studio 75 papers
are so easy to use & match with everything!  I have a great time stash-busting
whenever I am doing my DT projects, because I always end up using lots of stuff!

To ground my design I used an awesome Prima background stamp with some stone
grey Tsukeniko ink, adding some light texture with the addition of some gauze
tucked in under my photo (that I raised up on some dimensional board first).

I have a tin of bling to last me the rest of my life, but most of them have now lost their
stickiness so I have to tip them out onto my desk & "pick & mix!"  The white alphas
are from Crate & the grey are the little Prima ones from a couple of years back -
they are AWESOME because they go on forever!  Because they're on 12 inch sheets!

Something I also have tons of are loads & loads of rolls of twine.  
There was a time I couldn't walk past one in real life or on line,
 without popping it into my cart!  Not to worry as I do love the look
 of it rolled & scrolled under my photo & peeking out around it! 
 This one is quite waxy & thick which makes for great loopy circles.  

Flairs are one of my FAVOURITE embellishments & I could keep on buying them forever ♥ 
I've bought them from all over the place in the past so can't remember where these 3 are 
from. The flowers are from PRIMA of course (I've been collecting those for YEARS now
but actually get through them quite fast as I am such a flower freak)!!

The resin fairy & the Beauty typewriter key {paper clip} also come from Prima.  
The fairy ties in with the "Growing your Wings" title & finally found it's perfect page! 
 It's been hiding out in my drawer for the last few years :)  So there you have it - 
a new challenge & some serious stash busting!!  I hope you will play along
 If you enjoy your visits here please sign up to my Google Friend Connect

Lovely page....I really like the twine/string behind it all. I reckon it 'grounds' a page so nicely!!! You are going to be busy, busy over the next few months!!! But I imagine you will also be well organised, so I hope it all goes according to plan:):)

Ahhh -such a gorgeous mood board! Your layout is stunning Helen. Every time I see one of yours - I know it's sheer perfection. I just sat here looking and looking trying to image how you know just the right placement and height and color for it all. The picture of your little sweetie is perfect too - her arm raised like that makes me think of wings!! j.
