Mood Board Inspiration

A Mothers Love – Adri Du Preez

 Hello everyone!
How absolutely amazing is this mood board, and the last one for 2020!
This is a photo of my daughter and her little baby boy James.
Watching my daughter become a mother is an amazing gift.  I am just so proud of her. 

My journaling reads…
Welcome to motherhood, and wow…it looks good on you and you are doing it beautifully!  Motherhood is a blessing, a gift, a relationship that never ends and a love that never dies.  Can you believe this is your baby?  How miraculous is birth? Motherhood knows joy, even while experiencing the hardest trials of your life. Motherhood is really something you can never be fully prepared for, but so very rewarding. I am praying that you will be able to savor and enjoy these early days of getting to know James, and asking God to give you strength and wisdom not only for these days, but for the years to come. My heart is overflowing with joy for you and Juan, and with love for little Jamesie. 

Here is the mood board.

and here is my layout.

All the chippies were first covered with white gesso.The Floral Frame and Title were heat embossed with Ranger embossing powder inWhite and Light Blue. 

The stars were all painted with Americana Acrylic paint in Baby Blue and brushed with white gesso.  Next, I covered the stars with glossy accents and while stillwet sprinkled with Stickles Dry Glitter.

Both sets of foliage were painted with Americana Acrylic paint in Royal Navy and Green Mist and dry brushed with white gesso.

And my favourite, wordpl@y and Quoted Sentiments.

and some close ups.
