Inspired by Life.Paper.Scrapbook, I'm participating in another mood board challenge! So much to love about this mood board - the colors, the layers, the theme of travel and adventure, the whole shebang. I didn't know it at the time, but I believe this is why I started a blog in the first place. I wanted to connect with a community of other creative folks and I think these scrapbook challenges are the perfect way to do just that. I could (and do!) spend hours looking at other scrapbook blogs, pinterest, and instagram photos. I'm inspired, learn techniques, and share with other crafty folk. And, if you know me, you know I'm motivated by a challenge and the possibility of winning something. It's perfect, really.
In anticipation of my upcoming trip to Puerta Vallarta (less than 3 weeks now!), I used a photo from my last trip to Mexico with two of my dearest friends. I'm continuing to experiment with mixed media backgrounds on white card stock before adding layers of fabric, paper, and embellishments. I'm a slow scrapbooker, taking hours to decide where to place small details, but I really enjoy the thought process.
