July's Challenge

Hi everyone, it's Cindy here with you today.

Thanks for joining me here on the Scrapbookit blog, this month Jo has asked me to set the month's challenge.  
I hope that you will come and join in the fun, and who knows maybe even win yourself a prize. 

My Challenge for July is :

1. To create your project using a stencil (just cause I love them, lol) 
2. To take your inspiration from my mood board
3. Have fun

There's plenty here in this mood board to inspire you, so it shouldn't be to hard to come up with some great layouts.

Now, here's my take on the challenge, I hope it gives you lots of ideas.
From the mood board I went for the reds and blacks and the word Relax and used these to create my layout... "Relax"

So this is a pic of my furbaby Henri, he certainly knows how to relax.  In this pic he is sprawled out on my lap while I am trying to create...
This month Jo sent me the Echo Park "Walking on Sunshine" paper pack to work with, great bright colours and patterns on one side of these papers and some fantastic simpler patterns and colours on the backs of them, these are just my style.... for this layout I used "Beach Stripe" which had this gorgeous red on the back... 

 Also in my pack this month this cute little wood word which I painted black to create my title.
In this pic you can see how I have used the Darkroom Door French Script stamp to randomly stamp my background.

 Here you can see I embellished the page with some Kaisercraft flowers that I sprayed and layered up and a large Manor House flower which I removed the centre from to use as a base.

A close up of my stenciling work.... I used the Scrap FX Wood Grain Stencil. Here I used it sideways to imitate Henri's striped legs and face.... I used modeling paste and sprays to imitate Henri's coat colours.

Doesn't Henri look so relaxed and content.

Well I hope you all enjoy this challenge and I can't wait to see all your takes on the mood board.  Don't forget that Jo has all these great products at the Scrapbookit Store.

till next time
happy creating
