Flowery Memories – Kerstin Filou – Mood Board inspiration

Welcome friends!

As I saw our colourful Moodboard for April I remembered on a wonderful vaccation in Madeira some years ago. It is a beautiful island situated in the north Atlantic Ocean.

We visited the Flower Festival in spring.
There was an enchanting flower parade, where people danced happily through the streets. 
A sea of colours, shapes and scents, simply unforgettably beautiful.

I used this amazing frame Decorative Frame #5 for a photo collage
 where I put together several individual pictures to a new image.

 Suitable to our April Moodboard I choose a paper
 from the Maja Design ‘Vintage Summer Basics’ Collection as background.

here I only used two Metallic waxes with my fingers
firstly ‘Gold Rush’ and on the edges ‘Black Shimmer’ (DecoArt)

Decorative Frame #5 was primed with white gesso and then colored with 
diluted acrylic paint in several shades of green
after drying stamped with Archival black ink and a script stamp
and finally also inked around the edges with Metallic Lustre ‘Black Shimmer’ 

Foliage #15 was painted with a little bit light green and gold
some of the leaves were primed with Heavy Gel Medium
and coated with Mini Art Stones

 My  teamies at Dusty Attic Design DT have come up with many inspiring and different versions

on the theme this time.
Please have a look and feel you inspired to create your own idea.
We are looking forward to see your new creations! 

Happy crafting!
