Mood Board Inspiration

Favourite Moment – Kerstin Filou

Welcome Dusty Attic friends!
Now it is my turn to feature a layout using the beautiful Dusty Attic Moodboard for August. 

I was inspired from the natural colours which reminds me on forest, water and sunshine.So I chose a photo from a beautiful and relaxed hiking tour through the Saxon Switzerland National Park.

How I begun

I used a background paper from Maja Design. Firstly I primed the page with Clear Gesso. Then some stencils with white Modeling paste. After drying time I always love to work with brushes and diluted acrylic paints in various shades suitable to the Moodboard colours.

 I’m a big fan of this very natural looking grass clusters, branches and wildflowers.I painted with acrylic colours and chose for the wildflowers a dark green mixed with a little bit black and finally highlighted with white in dry brush technique.

 Firstly primed with a Metallic Acrylic paint ‘Dark Patina’ (DecoArt), at the bottom edge painted with some brush strokes and black paint for more contrast, so it looks like a meadow silhouette.In upper part with a diluted lighter green tone onto some places.
