DT Reveal for Scrap Around the World July challenge!!!

Hello there friends of Scrap Around The World!  
We present you with our exquisite mood board for July, created by talented 
Design Team member Keren Tamir, together with a lovely sketch from our 
resident sketch designer, Jules McKenna-De Lumen!

All you need to do is be inspired by the mood board 
(in ANY way) & use our sketch as your starting point.  

How to use our sketches

As you would any other sketch.  We would like to see that it definitely inspired you
& was your 'starting point' but you can 'make it your own' by flipping it, turning it,
 inverting it & moving things about if you like.  You can also change the 
photo orientation and number of photos to be as few or as many as you like.

The above image MUST appear on the blog post containing your challenge 
entry -you also need to mention that you are playing along with the current 
challenge at Scrap Around The World & link up to it please,

Keren is our challenge host this month & will be monitoring the comments 
section of this post & answering any questions you may have 
How to use our mood boards

Our mood boards are for your INSPIRATION only.  
You can be inspired by one of the images, all of the images, 
or any number of them, or even parts thereof. 

For example:- on this board you may be inspired by the colours (either all of them or just one, two or more) but you do not have to use any colours on the board if you don't want to.  Other aspects of the mood board that could inspire you are, for example, the pleating/draping of the curtains, the soft organza type fabric, the chandelier, flower clusters, wood (from the table) the green from the grass, the misty background in the first image that could prompt the use of vellum or baking paper, hearts, ribbon, rafia, wreath elements, keys, clear elements, 'door-knob' type embellishments, corsets, dress-forms, floral vines, moulded resin embellishments & frames!

It's entirely up to you!  Be Inspired in any way!!

You can visit the blog of SCRAP AROUND THE WORLD to see the amazing layouts of all the design team!!!

 and this is my layout....

"Dare to dream"

 As soon as I saw this beautiful mood board I thought of my wedding!  I was inspired by all the romantic elements, pale tones & especially the different textures, so I used various patterned papers, beads, washi tape, gesso masking & stitching on my background. I added gauze & broderie anglaise for even more texture plus flowers of course!  I added touches of luxe gold & butterflies from the sketch.
