Check out this awesome mood board from Scrap Around the World. The colours are so vibrant and the pictures so beautiful. There is so much inspiration to be had from it. I was drawn to the steps and sentiment in the main picture and immediately thought of this photo that I took on our Paris trip. It was so exciting to be stepping up out of the Metro into the centre of Paris. I used the upper right image (the butterfly on a flower) as the basis for my colour scheme. I inked, sprayed and masked my background cardstock before using some of my favourite stamps including my 'Prima' stitched circles stamps to emhance the background.
I matted my photo with a variety of left over die-cuts and washi tape strips. I used my favourite 'brush stroke' thickers to spell out my title and handwrote the journaling.
Hope you have time to head over to the SATW blog and check out this challenge yourself. As the lucky recipient of a fantastic prizepack from 7 dots for my 2nd place layout last month I can really attest to the fabulous prizes up for grabs !!! Thanks so much Aida, 7 Dots and SATW!!!
