Free Spirit – Nicole

Hi its Nicole here sharing with you today a whimsical layout inspired by the beautiful in blue from last months mood board from Dusty Attic and  Art Playground challenge blog. 

I was also inspired by this gorgeous colour palette and the Be Authentic theme from this challenge from the Art Playground blog. Click HERE for details!

 I incorporated many of the colours from both mood boards. Grey, black, white and lots of blue of all shades and hues! I found that using a grey woodgrain pattern as my background fit perfectly and I fussy cut lots of beautiful butterflies from patterned paper. I chose to add the Layered Flourish, simply embossed with white, as they went along great with the butterflies in flight.

Following the Be Authentic theme, I opted for the Free Spirit impact title, coloring ‘free’ with navy blue embossing powder dabbed with white paint, and treating ‘spirit’ with lighter embossing powder, dabbed with white paint and then several shades of blue distress stain.

I thought that the Indian Arrow and Feather would go well with the somewhat bohemian feel of the layout.

You can see here two of the newer chipboard sets available in the DA website, Iron Garnish #5 and Driftwood #2. Don’t you love the details on those wood pieces?

You may find it strange how I overlapped the paper over the picture, as shown below.
Well, it just goes to show that creating doesn’t always go your way. I accidentally put glue on the photo, right on the little girl’s pretty cheek, and was unable to remove it. In fact, whatever I did seemed to make it worse. So dead set on using this photo, I just decided to hide the glue. Ha!

I hope you like my layout. I would love to read your feedback in the comments!
