LO: Timeless Journey

It really had been a while since my last layout. But I had to give it a go when I saw this extremely gorgeous and motivational mood board from Scrap Around The World here and here.

This is the mood board which had inspired and sparked off the layout:


To me. the mood board spelt something about my relationship of 8 years. In this relationship, we held hands and we let each other have the space as well. This is the key to our 8 years (& more) of being together. Hence, the mood board really sent a spark to me, with the clock signifying our time together, and the key + quote referring to how our relationship works.

In addition, I have used the frame and color of the rose as my theme, hence creating this: Timeless Journey

Some closeups of the layout:



Well, I noticed something really funny when I was doing this layout. Although I am a great lover of pastel colors, I realized that I do not own a pink mist amidst my huge collection of mists. Oh my, this must really mean more shopping to do! So to change things a bit, I decided to mix my texture paste with my light pastel pink paint (which happens to be 1 among the huge collection of the different variations of pink that I have) for the polka dot stencil, then followed by another harsher shade of peach pink using a water splash stencil. Then, I added some mint green with water and applied it to some portions of the layout to create a little contrast. Of course I just had to use some pearl mists (gives the background a little shimmer but can't be seen on pictures unfortunately) to finish up the back ground. Then comes the layering and it was fun looking through my stash collection. So according to the challenge, I applied elements which were related (like the clock above my title timeless)

So do drop by Scrap Around the World and get ready to be inspired by the talented DTs. I promise you that they are amazing! :)
