July Mood Board at Black With 2

Welcome again friends!
1st of the month means
Reveal Day
This month's Mood Board
Orange & Grey.
A gorgeous combination against black!

My interpretation of the
 Mood Board....

I think most of us used
 photo's of sunsets - such
 a perfect choice
 for these colours.
This was a photo I took
 back in 2003,
 when we lived in
 Perth, WA.

Using American Crafts
cardstock, and a wee bit of
 Kaiser patterned paper from
 the "Curiosity" collection.

The title alpha's are
Basic Grey.

A Prima stencil,
 gesso and a wee bit
orange paint.

All my elements are orange,
 but I did use a wee bit of grey
 - the Kaiser Sparklet in the centre
 of the Prima flower, which is
 from the
"Caribbean Monster Collection".

So, I finally tried my hand
 at stencil work.
 Will certainly have another go.
Maybe with a bit more on
 the page - baby steps....lol.

Now you must head on over to the
and see the stunning layouts
 from my fellow DT girls
 - they have some amazing
 mixed media interpretations.
Then, join us in the challenge.
 There are prizes to be had
 every month and also
 featured layouts which are
 displayed at the head of
 the BW2 Blog.
Just remember to start with
 a black background,
 use the word Tropicana in your journaling
and the two colours this month
 orange and grey.
 Follow the sketch and use
 the beautiful photo on the
 Mood Board for inspiration.
Most important rule of all -
Have Fun
