Mood Board Inspiration

BEACH Life – Adri Du Preez

Hello everyone!
I am sure that you will agree with me that the November mood board is just stunning! Remember you have until the end of this month to participate in the challenge.
I used photos of my grandchildren’s school photos which was a beach theme and perfect for the pretty Uniquely Creative collection, Tropical Dreams. I have also used some beautiful beach theme Dusty Attic chippies.
Here is the mood board.

 and here is my layout.

All the chippies were primed with white gesso.I then painted the edges of the old wooden fence, title, seagull and drift wood with Americana Acrylic Paint in Slate Grey and Grey Storm.

The  tropical foliage were painted with Americana Acrylic Paint in Green Mist and dry brushed with Banana Cream.


I sprayed the starfish with Distress Oxide Spray in Vintage Photo and Spiced Marmalade and lightly rubbed with  Vintage Gold Metallique wax.


The Wordpl@y elements were dry brushed with Americana Acrylic Paint in Peaches ‘n Cream, Poodleskirt Pink and Mint Julep Green.


Some close ups.


These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I have used. Visit the online shop for these and many more amazing chipboard designs.
