That Face - #moodboardgirls

Hey there scrappy friends,

I cant believe another month already passed by!
We are back today with a new mood board and lots of inspiration!

Our stunning September mood board was created by the super talented Ulli. Aren't these colors just gorgeous?

As soon as I saw it, it reminded me of the first ever scrapbook collection I purchased: Grand Bazaar from Kelly Purkey for Basic Grey. I love this collection to this day and I actually bought more of it last year when I found it hidden in some online store!

What I love most about these mood board layouts is that I can go through my stash (or at least a part of it, ha!)  and use up things I've been hoarding for a long time!

I chose loads of patterned papers in the colors of the mood board from different manufacturers: Basic Grey, Fancy Pants, Simple Stories, My Mind's Eye - just to name a few.

Then I busted out my Cuttlebug and started die cutting all those leaves! This took a while, I'll admit :). Once I thought I had enough, I played around a little with the arrangement. I decided for a wreath. I added some machine stitching to some of the leaves for texture.  Then I started layering and gluing them down in a circle.

I used some foam adhesive behind my photo and adhered it in the middle. Then all I had to do was embellishing. I pulled out lots and lots of embellies, I was so surprised how many I found! I arranged them in a tone on tone way. As a last step I added many many enamel dots! Those things are just my favorite embellishment, can't help it!

Since I wanted to try a few new dies I bought, I created some cards too! I just love love love these colors!

I hope you find something here today to inspire you to create!

Here's our line up this month:

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by!
