Scrap Around The World Challenge 5

Here is my take on the challenge

Please note we have modified our rules!!

{please read our "To be Eligible for Judging" further down
as there's a slight change there too}.

 1)  The sketch is now OPTIONAL - you do not HAVE to use it 
{but of course you are welcome to use it as a starting point
 & for your inspiration if you like!}, this makes it easy for you to 
combine our challenges with sketch challenges if you want :)

2)  We now accept art journaling pages BUT only double-spreads with a 
minimum single page size of 14 x 19cm (5.5 x 7.5 inches) per page.

3)  Our challenges will now run until midnight EST on the last of the month
     {this means you have an entire month to complete the challenge - woohoo!}.


Our HUGE NEWS is that we have a 
Facebook Subscriber Giveaway
launching TOMORROW {Monday 2nd September 2013} so make sure to
LIKE us on Facebook & come back TOMORROW 
to see what you can win!


Our HUGER NEWS is that we have a MYSTERY GUEST
creating with this month's mood board on TUESDAY NIGHT!
{that's your HINT - anyone guess WHO IT COULD BE?!}
Come back on Tuesday to find out & get the link!!


For September we have a BOLD and GRAPHIC mood board
from Design Team member Gayle Price {Australia}.

Feel free to interpret the mood board in any way you like, 
using one image, several of them, all of them or even just 
one aspect of an image, using ANY COLOURS!    

For example:- You could use contrasting colours or contrasting elements
(rough/smooth - straight/curved - light/dark) text, alphas, bold patterns, 
doodles, scribbles, flourishes, rub-ons,detailed embellishments
 (ie:-lace,chipboard, metal/resin embellishments) masks & sunrays.

Even the topic you chose to scrap could be inspired by the board
{reading the board from the top left to the bottom right}
such as things you feel strongly about (image 1)
unconventional beauty (image 2) 
about your thoughts/feelings (image 3)
loved ones/a dependency (image 4) 
your wild side/things not everyone knows about you (image 5).


To be eligible for judging:-

You are required to show the image of the MOOD BOARD ONLY 
{you may show the sketch image but ONLY IF YOU USE IT}
 PLUS mention in your post that you are playing along at Scrap Around The World 
with a link back to the current challenge.
