A Fun Day | Mandy Melville

Hello D-lish friends!

It's Mandy with you today and I'll be sharing some projects here on the blog over the next few days! I'm going to be kicking it off with my take on the current Inspiration Board challenge! I absolutely love the colour palette this month! Here's my layout...

"A Fun Day"


And here's a reminder of the "Tranquil Pools" Inspiration Board...


How divine is this?! This recent photo of my son taking a swim in the pool when we were on holidays was just perfect for creating a layout inspired by this board! I also used the sketch as the basis for my layout.

I used lots of items from this month's Just Add Paper kit to create my layout! These kits are amazing value and make it so easy to create a layout with perfectly co-ordinated embellishments! But you have to be quick, because they sell out super fast!

Here are some closeups of my layout so that you can see all of the lovely embellishments...


The wood veneer circles in this month's kit were so much fun! I used two different coloured spray inks to add colour to them. Rather than spraying the ink on though, I got a paintbrush and painted it on as I felt like it gave a more even coverage and there was less wastage. I love how well the wood veneer took the colour, and how bright and vibrant the colours are! Here you can also see that I added one of the flair buttons from the kit, as well as two of the resin flowers and a sprinkling of sequins.


On the bottom right hand corner of my photo I created a little cluster that includes a phrase from the Boy oh Boy Wordfetti sheet, a wooden button (this particular button is no longer available), a paper flower from the kit, and a puffy sticker from my stash. I also tucked the tab from the journal pack in the kit underneath the right hand side of my photo.


In the bottom right hand corner of my layout I added my title, as well as the date tag from the journal pack, another paper flower from the kit, a resin flower, and some more sequins.

I hope that you play along with our Inspiration Board challenge this month! If you get some creative time this weekend, why don't you give it a go! Link up your project here on the D-lish Scraps blog by the end of the month for your chance to win a prize!

I'll be back tomorrow with another share! Until then, happy scrapping!
