This is the Scrap Around the World Mood board and sketch. I used the soft colours and flowers from the mood board as inspiration. I replaced the circles in the sketch with doilies.
I found the magic of Panpastels. I love the soft feel of them and the way they blend beautifully and smoothly. I also like the fact that I can just use an eraser when I am not happy with the result. I first used the Crafters Workshop mini tile texture template and applied texture paste through it to the corners of the background paper. When it was dry I shaded the background with soft pink, aqua and burnt sienna PanPastels. I set the pastels with spray fixative. When it was dry I randomly applied texture paste through a Crafters Workshop Mini bubble doily. I love the texture.
I randomly stamped hearts on the background before putting the layout together. The photo of Leane shows her sprinkling of freckles. I used an Afrikaans title which is also a song sang by Sias Reyneke many years ago: "Sproetjies Liefling" (Freckles sweetheart). The journaling is also words from the song.
I completed the page by applying a flower and pearl cluster.
