Hello dear friends!
Today is the mid month reveal of Scrap Around The World and here is my page...
...based on this minimalist & futuristic mood board created by Terhi Koskinen. This mood board is full of texture, softness, sun & light.
As always, I tried to use all the elements of the moodboard. On my page you can see
colors of white, greys, yellows, browns & shades of teal.
Instead of the beautiful horse I used the Trojan Horse - by the way do you know the story? It is about the subterfuge that the Greeks used to enter the city of Troy and win the war. They constructed a huge wooden horse, and hid a select force of men inside. The Greeks pretended to sail away, and the Trojans pulled the horse into their city as a victory trophy. That night the Greek force crept out of the horse and opened the gates for the rest of the Greek army, which had sailed back under cover of night. The Greeks entered and destroyed the city of Troy, decisively ending the war...
I got the idea to use the Trojan Horse not only by the horse picture but also by the robot - I combined both of them in one picture. The quote I used is the relative of this theme.
I also wrote by hand:
Don't judge me, you only see what I choose to show you.
I think it matches perfectly with the theme.
The inspiration of this moodboard is endless: the wood, string, circles of twine, pencil work, measurement details, arrows and of course CHEVRONS, all these are on my page!
I had really a lot of fun designing the background with my permanent pen, a ruler and some bottle caps. Of course the stamps helped a lot to finish my design and give this modern geometrical look.
I just love it!
