APRIL challenge

A voucher for $25 from Scrapbooking Hut will be sent her way.
We were all overwhelmed by our 21 entries this month. They were all fantastic.
Welcome to another fun filled month at Archiscraps.
On the other side of the world, spring has sprung.
Here in Australia we are going into autumn and the days are starting to get cooler.It is a nice time of year.
I've chosen something fresh and green for this month's stimulus picture
and can you guess what the extra criteria is????
Use triangles on your layout however you like.
When you link up please describe where the triangles are.
Our prize this month is from SCRAPPERS GARDEN
Aren't they lovely? Linda is one talented lady :)
Now on to the DT's wonderful layouts

I was very inspired by this amazing garden room shape, so used lots of triangular shapes as well as being inspired by the green of the woods in the photo.  So I have used lots of cool green,some fab Norfolk Island photos which I thoroughly enjoyed scrapping with.


I took my inspiration from all the greens and the outdoor setting, many trees. I've added a triangle in each corner, they seem to point at the photos. My banners have triangle shapes also.

The arch in the top of the gate has triangles and they remind me of the rays on the unusual glass house.

Such an unusual piece of architecture!   I was drawn to the surrounding green of the woods in the photograph and I have tried to capture this feeling of nature with the soft green I have used in the patterned paper and my use of wood embellishments.  I have also used suspended triangles like those of the actual house.


Triangles were used for the banner and to the right of the photo are larger triangles with smaller ones added on them with pop dots for dimension.  I was inspired by the colors and incorporated lots of green with white touches which represent the light bursting through the trees in the inspiration photo.

 This photo is of my hubby and myself when we were in Brisbane visiting family and friends at Christmas time. I used the triangles as arrows to direct attention to the photo. I also stamped random triangles around the edge of the layout.( I don't know if they showed up very well in the photo).

NICOLE has resigned from our DT for personal reasons.
We wish you all the best for your future, and thank you for your wonderful inspiration during your time here.
