July moodboard

To enter all you need to do, is use the Mood Board for Inspiration,  you can interpret it anyway you like. The only requirement is that Dusty Attic chipboard is used in your creation

I am blown away by the intense coupling of rust and teal in this moodbaord, so much so I have been inspired to create a whole album, which I haven't done for some time.  The Dusty attic blog page is full of amazing creations for this colour combination.

 

My pocket page is assembled from scraps of paper in rust and teal layered up for interest.

I found a hunkydory leaf topper in my collection, inspired by the leaf in the moodboard.  I also used a decorative resin heart inspired by the heart in the images, teal in my version, and a small coloured jar nestle amongst the ephemera.

The jar image inspired me to use white floral's to complete the layout.

 

I treated the Dusty Attic decorative flourish set in Finnabair rust pastes, Lindys rust coloured spray and gold mica powder.

 

Thank you for looking, I read all your comments

On Purpose

29 June 2017 [not placed]

 

Pretty in Pink Challenge

Remember, you can use just the sketch, just the Mood Board or both together, the only "rule" is that there is Dusty Attic chipboard used on your creation.

Find out who you are and do it on purpose, such a lovely sentiment discovered by accident for this pretty pink layout using my favourite Dusty Attic chipboard.

I rotated the sketch 90° right, and used three papers from Kaisercraft Sage and Grace.

 

I treated the Dusty Attic decorative frame #1 in two different ways; the first I distressed all the edges and added crackle paste before painting over in pink starlight paint (having discarded the spray and wax original effect).

The second I thinned and painted white before finishing in clear and sparkle embossing powder.

 

The inferred colour scheme was green, pink and white, with a summer wedding theme so I searched the internet for a rosebud crown and happened across the Etsy site of Gardens of Whimsy by April Rissell.

My layout features two of her beautiful bridal flower crowns; White flower headpiece and Woodland crown.

 

The circular frames were inspired by the bicycle wheels, and the layout was embellished with small pink blooms inspired by the blossom image and the dusky pink rosebuds on the moodboard image.

 

The layout was finished with a recycled silver chain and diamante loop inspired by the decoration of the White Flower headpiece.

 

Thank you for visiting, I read all your  comments

hugs

Debbie
