Mixed Media Layout + GIVEAWAY!!!


Hi Guys! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

It's been awhile since I last blogged about my crafty projects since I've been BUSY BUSY BUSY! If you have been following me on my Instagram (@mabelsim) or on my Facebook page (thecraftminded), you would've realised that I conducted my first workshop for Fujifilm (insert *squeal*) at Harvey Norman Millenia Walk for their new photos and scrapbooking store called Wonder Photo Shop by Fujifilm. It's a very exciting experience for me to venture into something more than sitting in front of the camera and filming or taking photos for tutorials so I would really have to thank Fujifilm and a dear friend of mine for offering me this awesome opportunity.

I'm feeling particularly happy this christmas season so I intend to organise a 
GIVEAWAY!!! 
WOOHOO!!!

Anyway, back to the topic for today, I'm doing a mixed media layout for Scrap Around the World's last challenge. It's pretty sad to see this awesome challenge blog coming to an end as I really enjoyed challenging myself with their monthly moodboards. So no matter how busy I was, I gotta participate this last challenge. 

Click HERE for more details


As you can see, apart from the colour scheme, my layout is inspired by different elements of the moodboard, including the floral 'wreath' and the gold glitter. 

Here are some close up shots.
