Firstly, I'll show you what I've made for it:
The photo was taken by my brother. His work takes him to many remote places in Australia. This photo was taken on the North-West Coastal Highway, a few hundred kilometres from Karratha in Western Australia. I think it's amazing!
You're not going to guess from my layout what the challenge is so I'd better show you!
The challenge is to be influenced by the word "Escape" and to use something from the Mood Photo. I looked at the Mood Photo and thought of wide open spaces and then knew exactly which photo to use. There's even a solitary tree in the photo. I don't think you can escape to more wide open spaces than outback Australia!
I felt that the bronze colour of my metal embellishments suited the rustic feel of the photo so I didn't alter them at all. I layered them up, mixing brands and styles for a rough and ready look. Most of them came from a purchase I made at my2angels a while ago though.
I stencilled the sunburst under the photos first to emphasise the sun in the photo. Scraps of paper and a few stickers added splashes of rich colour.
I hope you're able to join us at More Than Words this month. You can find the challenge HERE.
