Be Your own Superhero, Love this Memory – Michelle Carrick, Mood Board Inspiration

friendly scrappers!
Today I’m back with my impressions of the May mood board!
Of which I hope to inspire you!
My first is my nephew playing with a bat, 
but the facial expressions are something

So this mixed media layout is playful!


On white card stock I stencilled with Distress Grid

using the new Nuvo
Nuvo Shimmer powder- Storm cloud I created the
back ground with splats.

I used an old
page from a book, I coloured with
Versa Magic- orange,
then stamped with a 49 & Market circle stamp, fussy cut out. 

Used Versa
Magic- orange for the title, as well as glossy accents. 

For the ABC123 boarder,
I used delicata pigment ink-black shimmer.
black netting, straws.
The flowers are from my stash.

brown and steampunk copper.

The metal embellishments are beads, metal netting and locks, with ribbon.
Flowers are Celeb8, a local company.
