Scrap Around The World October challenge - close-ups of my page "You Shine"

Hello hello!

Hope this Saturday finds you well. I know for sure that I will be working my way through the shops of Oxford street and Regent street, doing some serious retail therapy. If I happen to stumble across a few chrissie pressies, that will be a bonus :))

Yesterday I shared Scrap Around The World's October challenge reveal that went live on 1 October HERE

First a reminder of the mood board and optional sketch.

I used the sketch but flipped it once to the left like this

And here is my take - "You Shine". 
It was made for a very very special lady.
On 8 October I will start sharing the special card and gift 
that I made for her "big oh" birthday.

The doily pattern of the white vases in the second top right photo 
was the first detail that inspired me.

The shelf with the jugs and the frame of the mirror came next.

All in all it was the mix of delicate scrollwork, together
with the different round and square shapes 
that decided the work for me.

I love the polka dots and splashes of colour too.

I painted the Blue Fern Studios chippie title 
in cream acrylic paint 
before dousing it heavily in 
Stickles Stardust and Fruit Punch.

Yummo splatter with dabber in Lemonade and pink acrylic paint.
