Going for Gold

Hi guys, 
Just popping by to show you some layout I created using my latest obsession- GOLD.
The first is for November's colour challenge at Scrap Friends. This isn't usually a colour combo I'd use but I was super keen to try it out and I really LOVE the result. As you can see I've opted for a mixed media background.

I also created a layout inspired by this AMAZING mood board over at Jot. I loved the colours so much I knew I needed to have a go at the challenge.
So here is my take. I took inspiration from (1) by creating a tissue paper background and tearing sections back to achieve a similar look/feel. I was also inspired by the ombre flowers and obviously the colour palette.

I have one more to show you which is for 123. The challenge was TEAL, STAMPING AND "COOL". No gold on this one!
I created the background by applying white tissue paper with modelling paste, spraying it with mist and then tearing off some sections of tissue paper when I realised I had added too much colour. I quite like the result.
And a close-up of a gorgeous mini runner from Charm. They are so cute!

Thanks for stopping by!
Can you believe it's almost December? So looking forward to it!
Have a great weekend!
