Just Imagine

Today I'm sharing my layout entry in the Scrap Around the World February 2015 Mood Challenge.  
I was inspired by the trees, the green & rust colors and the quote.

The first image that came to mind when I saw this mood board is a fabulously interesting photo taken by my daughter in Chiaksan National Park, South Korea.

I first stenciled and stamped the page; then added ink coloring to some areas.  The photo is framed with black and green distressed cardstock and the photo edge wire brushed.  Tim Holtz "Courtyard" Frameworks die cuts colored with Rusty Hinge distress ink and brushed with black gesso also helped to bring focus to the photo.

Some of the Wild Orchid Crafts flowers were sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio colors Toto's Tornado Black & Greased Lightnin' Green.  The burnt umber colored roses were lightly brushed with black gesso.  I created flower stems using Flower Soft.
Prima wire thread was used to create the bodies and antennae for the tiny bronze colored dragonfly jewelry beads.  I also made a stick pin with black beads and bronze colored bead separators.
The carved head of a dragon is the post on a wooden bridge over a stream.  The dragon's scaly, snake like body makes up the handrail.  Look closely and you can even see the ridge down the 'middle of the dragon's back'.  Awesomely cool!

Thanks for looking!  Have a great day!  Lisa : )
