Welcome to October ...

 Welcome to OCTOBER and our ORANGE with white moodboard with USE THIS element of Flair.

USE THIS criteria -  Flair

This year we are continuing with using a base colour and allowing you to use any variation of that colour you might like to use - light, dark, colour ranges just so long as we can tell it IS the monthly colour.  Of course you MUST use a majority of white on your page - the easiest way to achieve this is to use a white cardstock background but that is up to you.

We are also introducing a simple monthly "Use this" criteria for you to include on your entry.

 You can use black, dark brown, grey or navy as your accent colour for journaling, titles etc and we will allow green if part of a floral pattern.  We'd love to see you take inspiration from this board and incorporate items you see and inspire you - perhaps you like the patterns you see on this board, stripes, herringbone and checks and want to use them on your page. You might be drawn to the books or the rectangular frames you see in the door or painting and would like to incorporate them into your layout or feature the citrus or the little bird. Whatever the inspiration please tell us what caught your eye.  

and now some totally amazing inspiration from our wonderful 2023 team ...
(in no particular order)

Heather Bensley (Australia)

Amanda Moran (Australia)
I was inspired by the citrus, drinks and layout of the mood board. Two flairs on either side of the page.

Karen Guy (Australia)

Karen Brierley (Australia)
I started with the soda bottle from the mood board, and went with a food theme.
Design tip: Use word stickers to customise flair to suit your page.

Tracey Beer (Australia)
Inspired by the oranges so embossed some orange circles. It's a long bow I know so just use your imagination!

Victoria King (Australia)
If you are wondering how I created this background it is a stencil which has 4 layers, so I did an ink layer, a paint layer, a paste layer and then the windows are a bead paste.

Lisa Kynaston (Austalia)
I was inspired by the Books, with a reading theme photo and the stacked book effect in the background.

Jane Howden (Australia)
Inspired by the citrus and the patterns in the blankets to help create my page.
