Now to announce the April Mood Board Challenge 

With stunning hues of browns and creams and an amazing photograph of natures spectacular colours. 

Inspiration is bought to us today by JEN BURNS 

Hello Dusty FANattics, today I have created this layout using a photograph taken when I was so super lucky to visit the Grand Canyon, what an out of this world experience this is. To be totally honest I wasn’t sure I would enjoy going, then we booked a helicopter ride to take us through the canyon to say I was excited was an understatement. However it SNOWED which I was so in awe of, as a 51 year old seeing snow for the first time!! (Just a reminder I live in Perth, Australia with 40 degree summers)But it meant obviously the helicopter ride was off but once standing looking out into this breath taking view you can’t help but be swept away with the beauty of nature.  April’s mood board was perfect for this memory to be scrapbooked.

I started with painting all of the pieces with a cream chalk paint then added other colours over the top of the cream.

These suitcases are so awesome with their little added corners, locks and handles.

To create the title I have used the Tall and Lean ABC singles and spelt out the Grand Canyon and added the brackets. Once painted with the kakh brown colour I have sponged the apricot/pink colour at the top to achieve the two toned effect.

The Travel corners have been inked over the cream then added the same colours of beige, brown, gold, apricot and pink paints

To finish off the borders created along the bottom I have added the mini compasses with white paint dabbed over the top.
I hope this has inspired you to enter the challenge for a chance to win a AUD $50 credit to the Dusty Attic online store which has an amazing NEW EASTER range available To enter just add your own take into the comments section on the Dusty FANattics page here.
