Scrap Around The World November Mood Board: Spice Scrapbook Layout

Hi all 
I am back with this month's Scrap Around The World Challenge. The mood board is a lovely Christmas theme. I love the smell of cloves and citrus at Christmas time, it is a mixture of fresh and warm all mixed in. I was inspired by the red and white colour theme so i used Oak House Studios Jubilee Red and Vintage Sepia Inks In A Bottle for the ink work.

I started the layout off by applying texture paste to a snowflake stencil mask. I mixed the paste with Oak House Studios Jubilee Red Ink to make it stand out against the pale background.  I then took the Circle Grid background stamp and used Chocolate brown and Firebrick Red ink pads to build the first layer of stamping. I then used the circles from the Texture Elements set and dotted them about the page to build the second layer of stamping.

Here is the mood board i drew my inspiration from, it was designed by Tiphanie amd here is a link to the challenge page There are lots of prizes avalible from sponsors such as 2 Crafty Chipboard and Studio 75 up for grabs for the winners here are the details:

I used Oak House Studios Jubilee Red and Vintage Sepia Inks In A Bottle to dye the emphenalia and flowers to keep in with the colour theme.

I used the Altered Christmas collage and Christmas Icons sheets from the Gecko Galz to build the layers. I mixed them in with the First Edition Christmas Wishes paper pad and used craft tape and foam tape to stagger the layers to add dimension.once all the pieces were stuck down i spritzed Jubilee Red Ink between the layers and let the ink run down the page before leaving it to dry fully.

 I used the sentiment from the Oak House Studio Daisies and Rainbows stamp set to add a bit of distressed writing to the page. I dabbed them onto the ink pad and lightly tapped the page with the stamp so it only printed parts of the stamp.

Here is a close up shot of the layers including the altered collage sheets by the Gecko Galz
