#happiness – Adri Du Preez – Mood Board Inspiration

Hello everyone!

I am back with another layout using the March mood board.  I knew this was going to be one of my favourite mood boards. My previous layout was soft and feminine. This layout is a grunge mixed media layout. I used the Week 4 sketch designed by Jen Hedger for inspiration.
Here is my layout.
To create the mixed media background, I used the Tim Holtz stencil Cargo, red and orange acrylic paint and stamped on the corners of the white cardstock.  I outlined some of the letters with a thin black Art Liner.  I randomly used the Words of Wisdom Duty Attic stencil. I also used a brick and chevron background stamp. I randomly stamped with a arrow stamp. I then used washi tape and very old Making Memories rub ons in different fonts. Despite how long I have had these they still worked fantastic.

The next step as to colour the chipboard pieces.  Here are some close-ups.
Because of the busy background I kept my chippies simple and just coloured them with black and red acrylic paint.  I glued some of the little hearts from the Heart Attack Panel used on my previous layout to the Polaroid Frames.

When everything was glued down I made splatters with diluted white gesso and black ink.

These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I used.

This is the Dusty Attic Stencil.
