October 2014 Challenge 18
A Vibrant & Glamorous moodboard by Rachael Funnell

Hello & welcome!  We present to you today - Challenge EIGHTEEN, 
hosted by Design Team member Rachael Funnell of Australia.

Rachael has created this fabulous & glamorous mood board for you 
this month & I am sure you will find it as irresistible as the Design Team did!

There are SO MANY WAYS TO BE INSPIRED from this mood board, from the
colours to the ombre effects, Aztec designs, the spots on the butterfly, the
amazing textures of the distressed bird cage to the lace of the shoes & the bling,
cogs & gears & metal in the butterfly image to the cut-outs of the blouse.

As usual we have 5 wonderful merit-based prizes for you this month
 & one random prize which can be won by ANYONE ANYWHERE. 
All our prizes always include international shipping!

Not only that, but we also offer a Guest Designer Position to our
winner each month too, which comes with plenty of exposure
in your own special post as well as an exclusive badge.

Please remember that in order to be eligible for our random prize each 
month you do need to share your project on our Facebook Wall.

You only need to be inspired by ONE image but can be inspired by
 more than one or even ALL the images - it really is UP TO YOU!!

We are NOT A COLOUR CHALLENGE SITE so there is no need
to follow our colours, although of course if they are your source of
inspiration you are welcome to use them all, or just some of them,
otherwise none at all!  You have complete artistic freedom BUT
we do need to be able to SEE HOW YOU WERE INSPIRED!
So please remember to tell us in your post!!

To be eligible for judging you need to follow our
 10 Golden Rules HEREwhich include:- 

1)  Sharing the mood board image in your blog post.

2)  Mentioning Scrap Around The World {in full - not just 
SATW} & LINKING BACK to our current challenge.

3)  Explaining how you were inspired by our mood board

4)  Linking back to your SATW blog post NOT YOUR ENTIRE BLOG.

5) We do not accept cards, tags, Off-the-Page items or mini-books.
Only layouts, canvases or art journal pages or spreads
(see our rules for minimum sizes please).


If receiving comments from some of our Design Team members is important
 to you please ensure that you have WORD VERIFICATION TURNED OFF.
