August Light: Layout for Scrap Africa DT
Hello! Here's my layout for the mid-month mood board challenge at Scrap Africa! And here's what the mood board looks like: I was inspired by the abundance of flowers and the colours, and also the combination of different typographies in the heart, which suggested using two different sort of alphabet in my title. One word is written by hand and and another with alphabet that I cut from corrugated cardboard. Another inspiration to my layout was the mood board at Scrap Around the World: Here I was inspired by the combination of pink and natural colours, the handwriting and the twine. I didn't feel like using dark brown this time, but the dark green handmade paper that I used to mat my photo sort of reminded me of the worn out leather covers of the old book in the mood board. With this layout, I'm also joining the Archi-Scraps challenge, with the theme of Layers and/or corrugated cardboard! I had wanted to use corrugated cardboard alphabet since I saw them in a layout by Terhi Koskinen recently. Do check out her work if you haven't already done so, she's one of Finland's best known scrapbookers and for a good reason! Thanks for your visit! I hope to see you in the Scrap Africa challenge, open for participation until the end of September!
