Cherish – Belinda Spencer – Mood Board Inspiration


It’s Belinda here today with my layout based on the May Mood Board.


Such a lovely combination of soft colours in the mood board this month that matched perfectly my photo of my kids in our hay shed taken many years ago.

I mixed up a combination of Lavender Blush Dusty In Bloom paint with a dash of Cranberry, diluted it with water and added a wash to my background . I flicked some of the colour over the page too. Once completely dry, I layered on a strip of perforated tape and a twine circle.

I painted all of my chipboard with about three coats of heavy white gesso for a lovely crisp finish. This is my most favourite finish for my chipboard as I like the stark contrast of the fresh white against whatever colours I might be using on my layout.

I stapled my frame onto my background and then added layers of patterned papers and my photo using 3D foam. This gives me enough lift to be able to slip in the flowers and other pieces of chipboard in and around the central focus. I only had a couple of Mini Tabs left in my pack and the words on them didn’t match my photo so I simply used the reverse of the tab and added my own sticker quote.

I finished with an awesome Tribal Arrow (LOVE these so much!) and some Geo Tags. The Geo Tags are one of my favourite go to chippies for boy layouts.

The Dusty Attic products used:

DA0805 Dusty In Bloom Bridal Veil
DA0807 Dusty In Bloom Blue Bonnet

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I do hope you find some time to play along with this super pretty mood board.
