May KraftPlus Challenge - Be Original - Elisa Ablett
Hi Elisa here again to share the layout I created for the May Kraft Plus Challenge. What a gorgeous moodboard!! Loved the Autumn colours and the beads. I immediately fixated on the beads and the result is that I made my own circular frame with a heap of beads that I had bought years ago when I was introduced to jewellery making (wink, wink....you know when you start a hobby, buy a heap of supplies and then realise you scrapbook too much to gain another hobby...I know you know what I mean). It took forever too make and im sure ill be vacuuming up the beads that escaped for the next week or so. I'm really pleased with how the layout turned out, the kraft cardstock, hessian, feathers, beads, butterflies and the distress stains created a natural vibe. "Be Original" is the title and I reflected that by adding original items like the beaded frame (in my fav colours) and the peacock feathers. I rarely scrap a photo of myself but I wanted to showcase the theme of the layout which is being natural, original - do what you love and love what you do. I think that it will be an important lesson to document for my kids. Pop on over to the awesome KraftPlus blog to have a look at the inspiring creations and monthly challenge.
