Berry71bleu and 7Dots Studio

Berry71bleu has an August challenge that has caught my eye. 
 "Get Creative with Textiles". 

 Norma is thrill to host her very first challenge on Berry71Blue and I love it Norma!!!

My layout features Muslin and Cheesecloth.  
Keep an eye open, muslin is going to take a front seat in the year coming with all crafting designs.

 Scrap around the World has a monthly challenge with a sketch and a mood board that is so inspiring.

Please come play with them here

Below is  challenge # 4 mood board at SATW.  This is where i got my inspiration for my layout.  I choose the color orange from the cake & the hair piece texture for my layout by using  cheese cloth & muslin as waves.

7DotStudio has a August  challenge asking for Clear Drops and Bubbles. 

 Well, don't you think a skiing layout featuring all kinds of water conjures up 
"clear drops  and  bubbles" ?  

Here is a close up of the 7DotStudio paper from the Domestic Goddess  collection.  I used Proudly Handcrafted and Women's Talk from that collection.  You can see bubbles in the pattern paper and I have embellished that pattern with some clear drops looking like glass bubbles of water.

Vist 7Dots Studio for fantastic inspirational designs showcased by their design team.
