The Challenge:

Scrap Around the World (October)

This is the mood board

When I see that, I think of PAPILLON right away, my PAPILLON...

I also love the shabby white birdcage and butterflies on the top left corner, that is what inspired this layout....

the big butterfly at the bottom left corner also caught my eyes...

and the jewels on both the shoe and that butterfly shows up on the layout as well...

some other details.....

City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 234 ~ A Piece of Sky

This week at

Ros set the theme

A Piece of Sky

I wanted to create the big blue sky with white clouds, like those I see in Santa Monica, CA

so I spray some blue watercolor paint with glimmer mist and water randomly on my work top, and then put a piece of watercolor paper upside down just to dab and absorb the colors, I wanted part blue  for the sky and part white for the clouds.....

and I love the effect

oh, and old fashion ferries wheel here, I am feeling a little bit nostalgic here

come play along with us at CCCB, this week we have this....

wonderful fairy paper pack sponsored by Ros for the winner

and our October Guest Star Greta Hess created another lovely card for you

Check out the CCCB Designers over at the challenge blog
