All grown Up - Scrap Around the World November challenge



I love the November mood board at SATW is just lovely. I was really inspired by the rainbow of coloured flowers and the vintage music paper.
I had wanted to create a rainbow effect background with my watercolour pencils for a while now and this seemed like a good opportunity to get them out and have a play. I took out a combination of colours - based on the flowers in the mood board and coloured a random rainbow diagonally across my music script background paper. When the colour was completely dry I used a chevron mask and texture paste to add a little detail to the background. A little stamping finished to look.



I built up layers beneath my photo using offcuts of papers and inking the edges. I added some stickers, rub-ons and other details from the awesome Crate paper 'Open Book' collection.


A 'Thickers' title and s little hand-written journaling completed my page. Thanks for the inspiration SATW!
