July inspiration by Wendy Scholten

Hi All,
July is almost at the end, wow how time flies when you are having fun ;-)
And fun i did have with this new gorgeous collection Wanderlust.
In real life it's even better then on the pictures!
Just love this collection, it's so perfect for your (holiday) pictures,
if they are made in the mountains, at the beach or on the water.

I have 2 layouts and a mini album for you this month all featuring the Wanderlust Collection

So let's start with my first layout called:

'Mountain View'

This picture was made in Yangshuo-China where i went with my sister last year on a road trip. Just love those mountains, this was our view from the hotel terras.

I used the Wanderlust- Ocean Voyage paper and the word explore from the calling cards paper.
I used a stencil with moddeling paste and the Departure stamp to create my background.
For my chipboard i used the Natural Frame which i embossed with the oatmeal embossing powder and the Mountain view title with Hot Cocoa embossing powder. I also used a brown frame from the printed chipboard pieces.
Have you seen Blue Fern studios newest product? Their lace is gorgeous, i love to work with lace so i'm very happy they have it now. I used the Lace 3 and the Ivory Braided Trim on this layout. And i cut out a flower from the Lace 1.
The new collection comes with beautiful flowers which match the papers very well, the Wanderlust Lilies, i used one in my flower cluster. And i used a few embellishments from my own stast like a small bottle filled with glitter, a button, small flowers and some chrystals.

I think this photo is so cute of our daughter with her 2 nieces, they are so fond of eachother, it's so adorable!
I used the Wanderlust Calling Cards paper and the Petites paper.
The only thing i did for my background was using the Departure Stamp. And a few calling cards.

For my chipboard i used the Seaside Frame and the word Explore from the Wanderlust Words.
I embossed them all with the Hot Cocoa embossing powder.
I cut out pieces of the Lace 4 to tuck behind my flower clusters, where i also used a Wanderlust Lilie.
And a piece of the Printed chipboard which i cut in half.
I also used some shells, small flowers, acrylic pebbles and metal embellishments from my own stash.

'Journey'


 It's a chipboard box and album where i used the Wanderlust papers on and a sheet of acrylic paper.
We went sailing on a small boat last summer with our daughter and my family in-law.
She and her nephew had the best time ever!
For the top off the box i used a piece of the Road Trip paper, a piece of the Ivory Braided Trim, the Curling Corner which i cut in half and embossed with the Hot cocoa Embossing powder as well as the word Journey from the Wanderlust Words set, a wanderlust Lilie and some embellishments from my own stash. 
I used some ink on the edges of the box and also the edges from the entire album.
And binded the album with some string.
For the front of the album i used an acrylic sheet behind my cover, so i could use the other piece of the Curling Corner and glue it on there, i embossed it on both sides so the inner side also has color.
I usd the Departure Stamp to give my paper some texture.
A few flowers, a piece of the Lace 3 and a piece of the calling cards paper to finish it.
For the inside pages i used some pieces from the Calling cards, Printed Chipboard, stamps, lace and some other small embellishments, below the last picture you can find a list from what i used in this album.



(My daughter put the shell and flower embellishments before my album, i think she did a good job, it looks good, lol!)
