Moving on, I woke up this morning determined that today I was going to get my grunge on, get really arty, and I knew exactly what I wanted to do and with what photo and challenge. That's exactly what I did.
It was sooooo good to get down and dirty with paints and mists and inks and just let the creativity flow, to allow my mind the freedom to instinctively recreate what I had dreamed. It was just about the most fun I've had scrapping in a really long time. LOL I think I might have to set aside tomorrow for more of the same!
Anyways I used the June 2013 Challenge 2 - An Eclectic/Retro Mood Board By Anupama Choudary at Scrap Around The World when creating this layout. The challenge comprises Anupama Choudary's Mood Board from which to draw inspiration, and a "happy & whimsical" (clearly I missed this bit LOL) sketch by Scrap Around The World's resident sketch artist Julianne McKenna-De Lumen.
Can you imagine my surprise (and shock horror) when late on a winter's afternoon in Melbourne I find the due date for the challenge is the 25th of June (today)! LOL talk about a rushed photo job in less than perfect conditions. At least it wasn't midnight LOL!

I was inspired by the 'arty' photo of the camera in the bottom right hand corner.

Loved this sketch!
So I have no idea if I've followed all the steps for this challenge but I'm going to link it up and see what happens. I have to say it was an absolute blast doing this challenge and I'm looking forward to getting more creative inspiration from Scrap Around The World. :)
PS: I may just take some fresh photos tomorrow morning when the light is just right, and see if I can't get not only a far better pic, but some close ups of the texture and other fun 'bits' on my layout. ;)
