August Monthly Pack

Hello everyone, welcome to the August Monthly Pack!  This month we are introducing a range from Jenni Bowlin Studios, called Haven.  This range is very rustic, botanical and homely all at the same time.  So very different from last month's pack, with every intention of coaxing your creativity even further!  I am excited to see what this one brings out in everyone, with a little added inspiration from the Creative Team!

And now to have a look at what the Creative Team have put together with the new Monthly Pack.

Three Generations by Sarah Wood (GCT)
Sarah has used some open space on this layout.  The photos have been layered behind a strip of the black and cream pp over the wider and lighter toned burgundy, which makes for a solid framed look.  A little gem bling in the corner of the photos adds a little sparkle to the photos.
Layered behind is more of the cameo pp and a torn piece of sheet music.  To add some boldness Sarah has used the cream dots on black pp as a front strip, adding her title to this.
A very nice touch is also the use of her pp to make the Fancy Fanny Flower (from the Flower Tech Class), and then layering this with the burgundy flower and the black cameo chip shape on top.  
Offsetting this at the top is a nicely placed embellishment of ruffled and folded lace and gimp layered over a strip of pp, and topped with a pp circle cutout, another burgundy flower and a punched butterly.  The colours all work really well, and I think they compliment the style of the photos used.  Well done Sarah. We will have more to share from the rest of the girls soon.

To be in the running for a Scrapville Prize, you will need to make sure your layout is in before Pumpkin Time on 31st August.  You can email your reduced image to Janet, or drop it into Scrapville in Wodonga.
