This yellow themed moodboard empowered me to create a layout from scratch using items from only the scraps box.
Various textures are inspired from the images in the moodboard, curled over edges, bark, crackle, lattice and corrugations.
The circle and an industrial theme inspired the use of old buttons, stray clock hands, beads and circle stamping.
Yellow is the colour of happiness. Here the yellow is accented with white and black.
Thank you for looking,

This month we propose to do any small-form work on the theme "Architecture". We are sure that the theme of textures, locks, buildings will give you a big push in creativity.
Secret Garden 6x4 mini album cover
It is almost as if this challenge was written for me.
I was looking for inspiration for the cover of a new 6x4 inch album I am working on, in the theme of lavander and wildflowers.
An I love, love, love architecture and texture.
Out came the paints from the greens pallate, and a plethora of ideas on creating texture for this little postcard sized layout.
I had in my stash a little wooden door embelishment, some IOD keyhole resins and a handful of ideas.
I have gone for a series of contrasts on this texture rich project; gloss and matt, shimmer and sparkle, rough and smooth, crackle and wood grain, gilded and varnished, corrugated and layered card, paint and spray colour, highlights and shadows.
Details of the textured techniques;
