Good morning everyone and welcome to the first of my February posts.
I have set the challenge this month at Scrapbookit.
When I was thinking about it I wanted to include bright primary colours and being that my routine and life has changed a little in the last few months I wanted our challenge to focus on who we are and what is happening for us in our life right at this very moment.
So I came up with the mood board below...
This month Jo has sent me the gorgeous Kaisercraft Wanderlust collection. What a fantastic travel range! I love collecting the different travel ranges that come onto the scrapbooking shop shelves because I have so many travel photos from our family trips..so thanks Jo!
Here is what I have come up with...
Now you might be wondering...Mel, where is the photo???
No...I am not going crazy (however I am sure that could be debatable!) I decided that this month I wouldn't use a photo. I wanted the focus of my layout to be the journalling of our story at the moment.
The beauty of a mood board is that you can take whatever inspiration you want from it. I decided to try and use lots of little parts of the board to help me create my layout.
Here is a close up of the journalling...
To brighten the papers up a little I decided to use a variety of sprays, ink and mists.
I really made a mess creating this layout but loved every minute of it.
A focus that I really wanted to include in my layout is the image of the road. I interpreted this as 'Life is a journey' and I used the Wanderlust collectables to do this.
Another focus that I used was the word 'Dream.' I have used the Kaisercraft Clear Stickers - Delicate Words to do this. The word 'Live' in the above picture is from the same pack. Aren't they just gorgeous?
Here is a close up of the stencil, ink and sprays that I have used. The little tabs are from the Wanderlust sticker sheet and I have used some Tiny Alpha Stickers for the words 'Believe' and 'Courage.'
I loved using little quotes and reminders around the page to assist in sharing my story.
Just like these gorgeous Cosmo Cricket - Tiny Sticker words.
I have used thin wire for the tags.
The majority of the products that I have used came in my pack from Jo at Scrapbookit however I did throw a few little bits and pieces from my stash in too!

Cardstock: Coredinations; Paper - Kaisercraft Wanderlust Collection...Wanderlust Paper Pad, Sticker sheet and Collectables; Mists - Prima Colour Bloom - Cobalt, Dylusions - Cut Grass and Postbox red; Ink - Distress Ink - Wild Honey, Fired Brick, Broken China, Peeled Paint; StazOn - Black Cherry, Jet Black; Stamps - Kaisercraft Clear Stamps - Script and Sketchy; moulding paste; Kaisercraft Quarters Template - Arrows; miscellaneous washi tape; black wire; Cosmo Cricket - Tiny Text Sticker words; Kaisercraft - Tiny Alpha Stickers; Red Alpha Stickers and Clear Stickers - Delicate Words.
