This month on Scrapology the team has taken inspiration from a layout by Australian Scrapbooker Melinda Spinks.
Melinda's layout incorporated lots of squares so this months challenge is to creating a layout using either Melinda's layout or Lynn's sketch as inspiration and some squares.
For my layout I used a photo taken in our village during the winter a few years ago.
I used 12" x 12" white Bazzill cardstock as my base and patterned paper from LOTS of BasicGrey's older winter/festive themed paper collections - Blitzen, Figgy Pudding, Dasher, Eskimo Kisses .....
Branches were cut on the Craft Robo using a shape from the Silhouette Studio and these were attached to the layout with 3D foam to add some dimension. Layered snowflakes from K&Co, crystals, a wooden bird and letters stickers finished off the layout. To add some sparkle the whole layout (apart from the photo) was sprayed with Crafter's Companion Spray & Sparkle Glitter Varnish.
Here is Melinda's original layout .....
..... and Lynn's sketch.
