My Happy Place Created With The Scraps Of Elegance~Pretty Things Kit & Mood Board

Over on the Scraps Of Darkness/Scrapsof Elegance Facebook Community Page, we do a monthly Mood Board and this month, we have a wonderful Fall/Autumn one to use:

The following is my take on this month's Mood Board . I took my inspiration from those peach, brown, and rust colors, then threw in some textures, like those that you see in the photos and then I took a photo of a pair of my worn boots and some Grace And Lace boot socks sitting on my front porch that reminded me of the ones in the photo, and got busy with the Scraps Of Elegance October Kit~Pretty Things.

I used the papers from the kit, one for the bottom then a second layer that I cut down and then did some paper curling on to expose the matching paper underneath, some punching to add visual address, and addedsome burlap string bows and some of the Blue Fern Chipboard from the Embellishment Add On that I sprayed with some Prima Color Bloom in Gilded then inked over with some Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Ink from my Reneabouquets Shops.

I then layered in burlapand more paper layers as well as some of the Bo Bunny pieces that were in the kit, a wooden tag from the Embellishment Add On that I put one of the stickers and Bo Bunny Brads from the EAO onto. I added pieces of the gorgeous Trim from the Embellishment Add On cheesecloth flowers from the kit, Floral Add On and some Prima Fifth Avenue Flowers  and Prima Swirl Resins that I carry in my Reneabouquets Shops.

Here you can see all the layering and misting that I did.
The Peaches & Cream Reneabouquets Butterflies were created by me for this month's kit. 

Here you can see all the dimension that the paper curling lends to the layout.

More of the details.

The sweet little frog die cut is from the Reneabouquets Vintage Ephemera Pack that I carry in my shops. I design, draw and gussy all these pieces up myself.

The Mushroom Die Cut also comes in that same Vintage Ephemera Pack.

Thank you so much for dropping by to check out my Mood Board Inspired Layout! I love when the cool Fall weather rolls in around here and I can slide into my boot socks, boots and soft warm clothes!! I hope you find some comfort in whatever Season your place of residence is having right now!! Me and my IRL friend, Tracy are heading off to the Smoky Mountain Rubber Stamp and Scrapbook Getaway in Sevierville this Saturday. If you happen to catch a glimpse of me, be sure to stop and say Hello!! Hugs~ Renea
