What a view

What do you do when you lose your MOJO and there is a heap of inspiration out there?  Well, you get stuck right into creating.  This weekend I have been creating.  Here is a layout I have completed for a challenge over at Soul Scrappers - the challenge is random word challenge PHOTO and we were to use one of the following on our layout - Say Cheese; What a View: Snap: Camera Shy; Photo Bomb or Selfie.   I choose What a view.   Here is my layout.
I took the photograph last year when I visited Central Australia.  It is of Kata Tjuta (also know as The Olgas).   I took a trip out to see them and do a walk around the rocks.  They are just as spectacular as Uluru (in fact they are larger in size).
In search of inspiration that would do my photo justice I came across Scrapbook Boutique blog and there was a layout/video by Louise Turner that got my mojo going.
I have used products available from Kaszazz on my layout.  I have kept the embellishments to a minimum as I did not see flowers, cogs, wheels, feathers etc as being appropriate for this layout.  Also, I kept the Dylusion spray ink work (Vanilla Custard and Dirty Martini which is the only green I have)  to the bottom of the skyline in my photo, this is where all the 'action' was.  I did use Gesso over the blue papers I laid down before I decided to only work on the bottom portion I do like that that decision created sky texture. I also dyed the cheesecloth with Vanilla Custard Dylusion spray and then watered it down to a colour I was happy with.
Here is a close up of elements on the page.
Thank you Louise for the inspiration - I have left some thanks on Scrapbook Boutique blog for you.
Thank you for looking, why not head over to Soul Scrappers (follow link above) and see what challenges they have.
