and im really excited.
the list of dt's on this site are amazing.
the challenge is a mood board which i have never done one before.
as soon as i saw it i had the photo and the paper i was going to use. i then pulled it all out and it just didnt work for me. so i had to pack it all away and look at the mood board again.
pulling inspiration from different things i got another clear picture of what i wanted to do and my page came together so easily.
the colours inspired me and also the outdoor picture, the rock and the aqua square looked like water to me. it also comes with a sketch which again i took inspiration from but didnt follow exactly. i turned it on its side and the tags i turned into a banner and i curved my title like the circle.
so here is the moodboard
and here is my page
and some close ups
i chose not to journal on this one as i felt the little quotes and title were a reflection of my journalling and thoughts. im an army wife but more importantly a stay at home mum to the four children in the photo (have a second look...you can see four hats as my baby was alseep in the ergo on my belly)
my husband is away alot and i constantly get asked if im "over it" or if i would ask him to leave the army and do something else. my answer each and every time is no. he has wanted to be in the army since highschool and all i ever wanted to be was a mum. we are very lucky and both have what we have always wanted. i believe i would never have been able to stay at home for the last 7 years if he wasnt in the army. yes it has its down sides but it also has some good sides.
its hard for the kids and i to be on our own alot but its just as hard for him to miss out on so much too. and besides he is such a fantastic dad and husband he makes up for the time he is away when he is home.
thanks for looking and any comments you may leave.
cant wait to see the next mood board.
