Hi there this is my layout for the mood board challenge over at http://offtherailsscrapbooking.blogspot.com.au/2015/07/julys-challenge.html
While I prefer soft pastel colours I have challenged myself by using the darker coloured mood board. I distressed the edges of my page and taped it to the darker colour page for the outside border. Then I have added some lovely washi tapes, some printed vellum, and a chipboard clock face. To add some texture I have tried something a little different, I have added puff paint to a brayer and rolled it onto the two paper strips to the far left of the photo mat. After applying the puff paint I have simply heated with heat gun, and it gives a fantastic textured look to the page.
I have journalled on the tag and it slides in under the photo. To complete my layout I have added a lovely crocheted flower with a metal button for the centre. A couple of brads and a metal flower finish the layout off nicely.
The photo was taken on a very sad day, when we farewelled my daughter in law. The men in the photo are my sons, nephew, family friend and my youngest son (10). I think the photo shows the love and respect they had for such a wonderful woman. RIP Sharon James xxx
