"Oh Happy day" by Anthea

 Hi all.
My LO today was inspired by the absolutely gorgeous mood board for this month over at the Scrap Suite.  Oh My Goodness - I adore this board soooooo much. 
The teals and the greens and sparkly silver are so beautiful and such easy colours to work with. I have had this photo of my gorgeous gal playing with slime for ages and I think the colours in the photo suit this mood board perfectly. 

I started my LO by splattering some mists over the page and then by layering different things as a matt for my photo.  I wanted a silver doily but discovered I was out of them so I simply sprayed a white one with mist to get the effect that I was looking for.
I cut up a creative cut which I then placed behind the photo to add more texture. 
I particularly love the picture of the arrows on the mood board so there was no doubt in my mind that I was going to use some these arrows my LO - it was just a matter of where to place them.
I then added a gorgeous flair which I got from a mini kit recently that I think is perfect for the photo.

I then added some gorgeous bling resins from another JAP kit and simply scattered them randomly all over my page. I like how they mimic the misting on the page but add more texture.

The strip of paper down the side was just to add a bit of balance to the page and the title is another creative cut from another set.  (I LOVE creative cuts!)
I had intentions at the beginning of the LO to colour my creative cuts but fell in love with the unaltered ones - I think the plain white looks clean and simple whist still adding a ton of texture.

I would love to see your take on this mood board - I know it is going to inspire some seriously gorgeous LOs and I can not wait to see them.
Till next time
Take care.
