All of the DT girls seemed to be on the same wave length with this months theme colour wise.
When thinking Morocco or Moroccan, how can anyone go past the amazing vibrant colours of the culture.

My inspiration came from the country’s, textiles, architecture, cooking and the colour blue. Well blue seemed to jumped out at me quite a bit, that could be because blue happens to be my most favourite colour and my eyes were drawn to it.

I used a section of the Ornate Fence #1 DA0440 (with a tiny bit of altering) and one of the new releases for April, the Mini ABC set Lower - DA0862, I love these letters and can see myself using them over and over.

I'll be back real soon with some more Dusty inspired pieces.
