Guest Designing for Scrap Africa

Scrap Africa and BoBunny Juliet and Heritage!

I'm so honored to say I was invited by the beautiful Denise Van Deventer to guest design this month at Scrap Africa! Can I get a whoo hoo? Whoo hoo!

Look at this gorgeous mood board I got to play with!
You can find Scrap Africa and the challenge--- here.

I have a dear scrap friend Jenny Dodds that has been a part of the Scraps of Darkness family from the early days. I always wanted to scrap a few of wedding photos. Every time she posted them I would tell her how much I would love to scrap them. Of course time goes by and things come up- like a lot of design team obligations! 

When I saw this mood board I immediately thought of that photo of Jenny. I just loved the quote on here... it was my total inspiration for this page. Jenny was sweet enough to allow me to use her photo and I'll be sending her this page in return. :)

I chose to use my favorite digi frame by Holly McCaig to alter the photo of Jenny and her husband. I picked up the colors of the mood board and added some inking for that rustic feeling found on the mood board.

So Happy Together Layout by Lisa Novogrodski for BoBunny and Scrap Africa using Heritage and Juliet Collections

Once again I have revisited my shabby chic style. A little mixed media stamping and inking in the background. I don't know is the shabby look out of style? I feel as though this photo called for something more elegant than a splattered mixed media page. :)

I took some of the BoBunny florals apart and folded them into smaller blossoms inserting them in between the die cut leaves. I used both the Heritage Collection and Juliet on this layout. The colors blend so well together. I just love that about BoBunny. I'm always able to mix collections to make things interesting.

The wooden chipboard clock is from Bobunny. I stained, painted and embossed it for texture and shimmer.

I added some cheesecloth and tucked it under the photo.

BoBunny jewels here and there.

This is a shot of the page from another angle. I also did some edge stitching.

You will want to check out the wonderful Scrap Africa site and play along with the beautiful mood board!
