ScrapBurst!!

Hello Everyone and welcome to June, the month of Financial Nightmares , Stocktakes, and fishing out our woollies for the first day winter!  This month we have a few new bits and pieces to share with you all, the first of which is our first ScrapBurst.  Always looking for something new and inspirational, Scrapville thought it was time to throw a ScrapBurst in - but wait, there's more!  This month we will not be having our regular Monthly Pack, we are going to do a ScrapBurst Month.  Huh? I hear you say........

There will be 4 ScrapBursts throughout the month, each one announced 7 days apart.  You have until the 30th of June to have ALL your ScrapBurst challenges completed and brought into Scrapville (or emailed).  There will be one prize put up for each Scrapburst, and the winners will be announced on the 5th of July.
ScrapBurst #1
Using the image below as inspiration, please create a layout.  You may focus on whatever  inspiration you draw from the image, whether it be the colour, the theme, shapes, words, patterns or the feeling it gives you. It must be a 12x12 in size, and submitted by Pumpkin Time on 30th June.  Please include your Name, contact details and ScrapBurst Challenge #.

Inspiration - Mellow Yellow
 This is a close up of the pattern for those wanting to explore that avenue...
'Everyday Inspiration'
Look around you and find inspiration in the most mundane things. I found my inspiration in the form of a conditioner bottle. I don't usually work with yellow so the colour scheme was a challenge in itself, but I LOVED the swirls and flourishes.
 
For added depth I stamped some images in darker yellow ink, cut some flourishes etc using my Cricut Expression, and adhered them over the stamped background images.  I attached my photo, added a journaling block (also cut using the Cricut Expression), a monogram and there you have it...inspiration from an everyday item.   Sally

Thanks Sally, I can see you're loving your Cricut!  And we are looking forward to seeing what you can come up with for this Inspiration ScrapBurst.
 
cheers
