A step back in in time - SATW OCTOBER challenge!

Welcome back to Scrap Around The World Challenge SIX,
hosted by Design Team member Jessy Christopher from Malaysia!
 
Last month we made some IMPORTANT RULE CHANGES 
so if you haven't checked them out yet please look HERE.


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!   Please
do let us know HOW YOU WERE INSPIRED!! 

For example:- You could use fresh, clean colours like white, pale blue, 
yellow, pink, mint green & gold.  Patterns such as florals/leafy foliage
 together with images of birds, flowers, chevrons & polka-dots! There
are elements of vintage mixed in with modern; doilies, airy lace designs,
pretty bows & clashing colours, shapes & prints.  Circles, checks,
stripes - this board is all about eclectic combinations!

There's an air of nostalgia mixed in with the uber-modern images too.
This could prompt you to scrap about different generations, life as it
was then & how it is now, or simply outdoor memories inspired by the
botanical prints.  This board evokes images of purity, beauty & 
femininity,with a touch of romance & homely peace & comfort.  

OPTIONAL SKETCH


To be eligible for judging:-

In your blog post:-

1)  Please share our mood board image.
{you may show the sketch image but ONLY IF YOU USE IT}

 2)  Please mention  that you are playing along at 
Scrap Around The World & LINK BACK to the current challenge.

{Please link to YOUR BLOG POST NOT your entire blog & please
 turn off word-verification if you would like some of our Design Team 
members to comment on your entry}.

3)  Please check our RULES OF PLAY HERE before entering.




Here's my layout inspired by Jessy's moodboard, I also used the sketch. I felt for the nostalgic theme and I documented a step back in time - a visit to a charming open air museum in the Polish mountains. I also took a great inpiration in photo # 2 , a dominating large flower and the lovely doilies.
 
In a day or two I will show you some more details and a sneak peak behind the scene - some details about my mixed media background and a new technique I tried here.
