Fearless – Kristy Abela – Mood Board Inspiration

 Hi and welcome to Autumn. This mood board for me inspired feelings of bare nature and wooded lands. A compliment to my barren arctic canvas which is my other inspiration for this month.
I dug around in my generous stash of chipboard and found some pieces that I thought fit the theme I had in mind…  I pushed them around on my page until I thought I had a winner.

Here is my thought process while creating… I add and subtract and take 1000 images. My poor phone!!  
I used my Dusty Attic Stencil to create some interest in the background. I used my pastes to add coloured texture. 
Time to colour my chipboard! 
I played around with so many elements. I coloured it with water colour on raw chipboard and compared it to metallic paint.

                 I added some embossing powders, 

                            Rust paste and wax

and Acrylic paints… 

I really got to play with those textures I would have found in the forest… 
Here are some close ups of the finished project. 

Thanks for looking!! 
Have fun creating off our March Mood Board!!
