September Inspiration Board Challenge

I'm so excited to be sharing our first monthly Inspiration Board challenge here at D-lish Scraps. Each month we will release a new Inspiration Board for you to get inspired and get creating! The board will also co-ordinate with our monthly release of a Just Add Paper Kit, so keep an eye out on our facebook page for those. So without further ado, here is our September board:

Citrus Breeze


The original inspiration for this board came from the pretty baby shower table. Soft tones of lemon and lime with fresh daisies, a hint of sky blue and warm sunlight on a beautiful spring day. From the soft ombre ruffles of the cake to the delicate hand dyed doilies there are so many gorgeous patterns and textures to this board. And for those that need a bit of a kickstart, a pretty co-ordinating sketch to get you underway.

The Creative Team have been hard at work to provide you with some amazing samples.

Oh dear! by Kaitlynne Roil


Kaitlynne has scored her background cardstock inspired by the tiles in the board. She used flowers from the colour palette and also a loose interpretation of the provided sketch to finish off her stunning sample.

Water Boys by Anne Patterson

LAYOUT
REMOVED
FOR
PUBLICATION


Anne's original inspiration came from the bowls of jelly beans and she has used that shape to create her stitched background of overlapped squares. Anne then continued to layer it up like the cake and finished with the check buttons which reminded her of the tile pattern in the board.

Forever Daddys Girl by Ros Madley


Ros loved the doilies and banners form the board and used these as inspiration for her page. She teamed them together into clusters and made the adorable vellum confetti pocket banners you can see on her page.

Chilled by Wendy Smith


Wendy took her initial inspiration from the colours and the sketch. She used a soft pastel colour palette for her layout and embellished with resin flowers like those on the earrings in the board.

Learn to Swim by Kylie Cornish


As soon as Kylie saw the palette for the inspiration board she knew she wanted to scrap photos of her daughter at Learn to Swim. To her the colours expressed the warmer weather to come. She has also been inspired by the doilies and the setting out of the provided sketch.

Puppy Love by Katie Howard


Katie loved the bright and fresh colours of the board so has used them to inspire her layout. She loves to use crisp white for her backgrounds and felt the summery citrus colours teamed up so well.

On our Little Beach by Meredith Treloar


Meredith took her initial inspiration from the sketch. She loved the placement of the doilies and also the fresh colours which she felt went well with the dress her daughter was wearing. Meredith had never used resin flowers before so she thought this would be a great opportunity to try them out.
