Cherish Yesterday – Adri Du Preez – Mood Board Inspiration

Hello everyone!

Here is my layout inspired by the beautiful December mood board, and the last one for 2019!  The next one will be in 2020, and I am looking forward sharing the mood board inspirations with you, they are just stunning! I used the After the rain paper from the beautiful 49 and Market collection Serendipitouse.

Here is the mood board.
and here is my layout.

On the background I used the Leaves Stencil and a finger dauber with Archival Ink in Paradise Teal and Cobalt.

All the chipboard pieces were first covered with a layer of this gesso. I heat embossed the title with Iced Enamels in Amethyst.

 Dusty Attic has a multitude of beautiful frames to choose from.  The one I used is the Decorative Frame #5 and I also cover the frame with white gesso. I painted the frame with America acrylic paint in Pansy Lavender and Bahama blue and dry brushed with white gesso and Metallique wax in Vintage Gold for a distressed look.

The leaves were embossed with white embossing powder.

The foliage were painted with America Acrylic paint in Bahama Blue and Victoria blue and dry brushed with white gesso.

I inked the edges of the wood slices with brown ink and dry brushed with white gesso.

Here you can also see how I used the leaves stencil.

more close ups.

When everything was glued down I added art stones and splatters with white gesso and Distress Spray Stain in Seedless preserves.

These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I used.


Thank you for visiting my blog.  See you again in  2020.  Please visit the Dusty Attic online store for more amazing chippies.
