The best is yet to be

Hi this is what I chose to do for the Mood Board Challenge over at http://scrapafrica.blogspot.com.au

I decided to do some pocket pages for this mood board, which is a great way to include a few photos.

What inspired me most with the mood board was the old rusty car so I have used a crackle effect blue/yellow paper on brown. I have stamped randomly here and there a lovely background stamp in black Stampin Up ink. I have added some random bits of mesh tape, then put gesso over the top and then some lovely gold embossing.

By placing a small strip of the mesh tape on the paper, then lightly inking over the top it gives a lovely effect once the mesh strip is removed.

Add some chipboard, some metal buttons and I think it finishes the pocket pages nicely. I did something a little different on one of the pocket pages, you open it up to find a photo inside with some journalling.

Thanks for stopping by.
