Love you to the moon and back- Scrap Around the World February challenge

Welcome back to Scrap Around The World Challenge TEN, 
hosted by Design Team member Christin Grønnslett
aka Umenorskan from Norway!

We have a lot of new updates on the Scrap Around the World blog so check them out.

No more sketches this year - just moodboards!

So here we go!!
Christin's FABULOUSLY VALENTINE moodboard!

Feel free to interpret the mood board in any way you like,
 using one image, several of them, all of them or even just
 one aspect of an image, using ANY COLOURS!  

To be eligible for judging:-

1.   You need to follow our 10 Golden Rules found HERE, which include :-

1)  Sharing the mood board image.

2)  Mentioning Scrap Around The World {in full - not just 
SATW} & LINKING BACK to the current challenge.

3)  Mentioning HOW you were inspired by our mood board.

4)  Linking back to your SATW blog post NOT YOUR ENTIRE BLOG.

If receiving comments from some of our Design Team members is important
 to you please ensure that you have WORD VERIFICATION TURNED OFF.


This is how I've interpreted the mood board:

To create this layout, I drew a heart and then I colored it in with Shimmerz paints and Farber Castell watercolor pencils.I let it drip in some areas to create movement.

I also create drips around the page as a border. I used the black watercolor pencil to outline all the edges. In order to get the blurred edge I wet the pencil first before each use.

If you want to buy some of the Shimmerz colors I used today just go to the Shimmerz store and you can buy those and some more yummy colors and... if you mention my name during checkout you will receive a free product.
