September moodboard


using dusty attic corner flourish#1


I was inspired by the colour wheel of colour available in the moodboard and the watercolour runnel effect.

I was also struck by the inspiration of eyes.

The strong and varied colours reminded me of the Venetian masques.

I cut the Dusty attic corner flourish #1 into three pieces.


I had intended to use all three pieces but only used two pieces for this layout in the end.

I covered the base card with a sheet of lace fabric and applied white gesso.


Inspired by the full colour wheel of colour I began to lay down Lindys starlight sprays.

I layered some manuscript papers behind the primary photo which was matted for impact.

White stamped flourishes and die cut flourishes were used for impact.

Some white highlights and a little script stamping added more detail.

The layout was finsihed with gem centered ribbon roses and a large paper open rose.

Thank you for looking, I read all your lovely comments
