Absolutely Beautiful – Michelle Van Oudtshoom – Mood Board Inspiration

Hello Scrappy friends

OH MY! The Dusty Attic moodboard for May is just absolutely beautiful. I love, love these beautiful colours – so soft and pretty.

 Isn’t it beautiful? And here is my take on the moodboard

I so loved putting this layout together. I used a page from the 49 and Market Reflections range – using the reverse side of the Awakenings page, I prepared the page by first applying clear gel medium. I then used the 12×12 tile mania stencil and added texture paste to the background. I then made up a mixture of Perfect Pearls Intereference Violet and water and splattered this on the page, plus I also watered down the Tim Holtz Distress Ink Dusty Concord and also splattered this on the page. Using a dark grey ink, I then randomly stamped with a script stamp.

I have used Creative Expressions Gilding Polish to colour all my chipboard. The ivy leaves are off the ivy borders chipboard. I have cut up these pieces so that I was able to tuck these pieces under my flower clusters. These were coloured in various shades of lilac, purple and blue.

I have used paper flowers from 49 and Market Reflections laser cut sheet. These have been cut, curled and raised in order to give them dimension

Once I have added all my elements I have added pearls, and muslin cloth to the flowers. I also added Stickles to the centre of each of the white flowers and to the butterfly. I have water down Tim Holtz Distress Ink Dusty Concord and Weathered Wood, and lightly added colour round the edges of my elements and some of the corners of the layout.

These are the Dusty Attic products that I have used:
