Life Is A Journey - Scrap Around The World Challenge Fourteen

 Challenge FOURTEEN at Scrap Around The World is hosted by
 Design Team member Di Garling from Australia!

Di has created this dramatic summery Mood Board
 in these striking colors to inspire YOU this month!


And here is my interpretation of Di's Mood Board, a 9 x 12 canvas:


I was inspired by the colors,  the flowers, and the overall feeling of life and the journey we all take.  What a ride!!!  A few closeups showing some details:




Lots of beautiful embellishments, most of which I found, including the beautiful white frame in the bargain bins at my local Michaels craft store.

Hope you will join us this month for the challenge.  
Feel free to interpret the mood board in any way you like,
 using one image, several of them, all of them or even just
 one aspect of an image, using ANY COLOURS!  

To be eligible for judging:-

You need to follow our 10 Golden Rules found HERE, which include:-
