Family Legacy – Maggie Armstrong – Mood Board Inspiration

Hello all!  So nice to be back into the swing of things after a short hiatus!  I am very excited to be part of the 2016 Dusty Attic Creative Team – if you haven’t checked out their range of beautiful chipboard, flowers, paint and other essential mixed media items on the website then click here. 
Each month, the team at Dusty Attic put up a moodboard – details as follows:
”Welcome to our Mood Board for 2016, we hope you love it as much as we do! Use the colours and words for Inspiration. Not only can you use Kraft, black or white cardstock but also it can be anything your heart desires to create, layouts, cards or an off the page project. The only “rule” is that you require Dusty Attic chipboard used on your masterpiece. Just add your link, name and country here to win a $100 Gift Voucher to the Dusty Attic website.”
I have been lucky enough to see all the moodboards for the year ahead and they are totally gorgeous! 
I created this altered wooden block for January…
February’s moodboard entries can be seen here.  A display of very beautiful and talented work.
This is was my take on the Feb Moodboard – a layout using lots of lovely chippy and paint.
But on to the delicious moodboard for March – a very shabby and vintage look and feel.  Creams, whites and sepias, with fabric textures of lace, burlap and muslin.  Hmmm, right up my alley and a perfect canvas to celebrate my Grandparents!
I used a 12×12 sheet of Dusty Attic Corrugated Card DA08309 to create a faux printers tray.  Easy to cut out and work with.  Painted, inked, distressed and textured, the corrugated card was able to withstand a fair bit of punishment!
A mixture of chipboard is incorporated into the layout, purely for decorative purposes of course!  Using a mixture of Alabaster and Sunshine Dusty Attic paint, I painted the chipboard a lovely vintage cream, then clear embossed with UTEE.  Really love the result!  A few blooms of Dusty Attic Bridal Veil complimented the look.
Some close up shots…
Thanks for stopping by and I look forward to seeing your March Moodboard Entries!
