Such Gentle Grace


I'm delighted to have found ANOTHER scrapping challenge site - and this one is Brand New!

Check out Scrap Around the World!

Naturally, I have decided to take part in their challenge this month.  What's lovely is that you can enter as many times as you like; and I suspect I may just end up doing that!

Here's their first challenge:

And this is what I did:

I loved the colours of the Mood Board, so I stuck with that (have a penchant for anything teal lately!). The chandelier is what really stood out most for me, so I wanted to use one in my spread also.  The other elements that caught my eye - and which I tried to capture in my LO - is the peonies, flowy table cloth (HOW divine is that!?), rolled rosettes on the back of the chair and the metal work in the windows of the cupboard.
I created my own peonie, out of tuille and organza.  The chandelier is cut from cardstock with my cricut and the chippie on the bottom left has been treated with gesso, clear UTEE and finished off with a soft rose coloured ink.
For the 'whispy' effect of the table cloth, I cut the organza out into multiple triangles and then adhered them down the left hand side of my page; making the bottom a little 'thicker'.  I then quickly ran my heat gun over it so as to melt it slightly and give a more 'raised' effect.
The rolled roses are from the Sizzix templates.
Here are some additional close-up shots.
I really love how these flowers turned out - I may just be hooked on making them!  SO easy!
Title and the rolled rose.

This has been a really great challenge to do - I loved the sketch and the mood board.  So easy to use together.  Can't wait to do more!
