SHINE BRIGHT

I swear it was only mid-March. I loved this mood board from Sassy Scrappers and definitely wanted to give it ago, then to realise on the weekend that I only had a few days left. Can you believe it's already April?
Anyway, I whipped this up today, inspired by not only the moodboard but DT member Chantalle's take on it. While she used brush strokes I decided to make my title a feature across my page. 


I am super disappointed with how my layouts have been photographing lately, actually ever. I have tried every position in the house and every setting on my camera. I promise you it looks a lot better in person. The watercolour looks a lot bright and more orange. I'm going to try take a better picture tomorrow. 


I used bit and pieces from past and current Scrappery kits because that's all I really have on hand here at Uni. Plus some things I've pick up at Spotlight while I've been here. I'm not going to tell you how much I've spent there in the last 5 weeks. 



To create my title I stuck down some DIY Shop letter stickers, used my gelatos to create a watercolour effect then removed the stickers and stitch around each letter with this gorgeous multi-coloured thread.


Hopefully I'll have more non DT project coming your way really soon. So good to be able to scrap for yourself every now and then. 

Thanks for stopping by,
Sophie

  2. Wow, I'm seriously in love with your page Sophie! Shooting white layouts is the hardest thing ever!! I once asked a guy at a camera shop who suggested shooting them on a dark piece of cardstock. Can't say I saw much of a difference but maybe you will have more luck! I would love to see this in real life x
