Jot Magazine July moodboard

When I saw the colours on the board for July over at Jot Magazine I knew I had to play along. Juicy oranges and gorgeous teals - yum!

 This is the page I created for the challenge
We recently visited the Maleny Botanic Gardens which was really amazing. In conjunction with having stunning landscapes and views for miles, there is also a scrumptious Devonshire Tea, animal petting and a massive aviary. Inside, there are all manner of beautiful birds. Our close encounter of the feathered kind was so wonderful, we had to go in for another tour! If you are up that way, I would really recommend a visit.

The base of my page kind've happened by accident. I was showing my kids how to do an ink blot test and I went about messing around with different colours. A couple of sheets later, and I had this amazing background, which I think actually looks a bit like feathers.

I've had feather cut files for ages, begging to be used. So I ran a couple different colours of Bazzill cardstock through my Silhouette as well as one of my favourite 'Niche' feather metal die cuts from My Mind's Eye, with my Cuttlebug.

All the elements have been layered and some of the feathers stitched for a bit of character.

To see the stunning examples by the Jot Girls and to join the challenge, you can link up your projects here.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
