Mood Board Inspiration

Grateful – Lynette Jacobs

  Hello Dusty Attic Fans!

Lynette here, welcome to the blog today. I am sharing my take on the August mood board…and it is a stunning one this month.  I decided that I wanted to document a photo taken on Mothers Day this year.  The moodboard:

The gorgeous Pink fresh Studio, Just a Little Lovely patterned paper was just perfect for the background and I added some hand stitching to emphasize the photo.
The Dusty Attic chipboard used for this project:

Foliage #27

Frangipani small

Iron Accent #1

Mini foliage #2

Word Pack #45
I painted some of the chipboard and heat embossed the others

I attached my background paper to some dark blue cardstock and then added some texture to the background.  

I wanted to keep the layers neutral and therefore added some vellum and a white doily behind my photo.  The Iron Accents were heat embossed and used as “photo corners”.

There was already enough colour in the photo and on the background paper so I used grey photos and painted the chipboard frangipani flowers a dusky purple.  The leaves were also painted.

I love the impact the iron accents make and layered the heat embossed title over the photo.

I used one of the corners of the stitched design on the background as the place to add my second floral cluster.  I then finished my page by adding some enamel dots to the clusters.We would love to see your take on our mood board.  Don’t forget to share your projects on our Facebook page.Why not enter the Mood Board challenge yourself?
