Autum the Nature Fairy by Joanne Bain – Mood Board Inspiration

Hi Everyone!!

Joanne here today sharing my latest creation created for the gorgeous Dusty Attic September Mood Board Challenge. The challenge gives you the chance to win one of two $50 Dusty Attic Gift Vouchers. To enter you simply need to 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. Once completed simply add your link to the right side bar of the Dusty Attic Blog.

So this is the September Mood Board..
Loving the Autumn colours.

This is my interpretation.
‘Autumn’
 ‘My Nature Fairy’
Her name is Autumn and she is my nature fairy. As you can probably see I was inspired by the colours of the mood board especially the picture on the top right. To dress Autumn I have used lots of  Dusty chipboard.






Autumn has all types of natural friends there are birds, ants and butterflies. She is adorned with flowers and vines that were painted to my desired colour.






Here dress was made from cheesecloth which was pulled apart and frayed to give a soft texture feel.






Her back cluster is made up of the smaller Industrial Heart, Boho Feathers and Fantasy Fronds. The created the grass pieces on the base stand I cut apart a Rosemary sprig.










Her wings were made from a double up of chipboard. I have used Laurel Sprigs and the thinner pieces of the Layered Flourish set.










So love the little mini Dusty butterflies, I have added a sprinkling of these little guys all over her. Here you can see the set of small mini branches and some of the small branches from the Foliage set.






This part of the front cluster was made up from one of the wings from the Wings #3 set.
