Heather McMahon – Mood Board Inspiration

Hello Dusty friends! It’s Heather McMahon here today with my layout for December.  Before I show you, did you know that you can win a $100 Dusty Attic voucher? Wouldn’t that come in handy at this time of year? All you have to do is enter this month’s challenge and be the winner!
Here’s what I made:
I used the inspiration board in several ways. Firstly, here it is:
Isn’t it beautiful? I used the word Bliss on my layout and took my cues for my photo choice from the cosy, relaxing scene. I started off using only the colours from the inspiration board, but I’m a teal fan and I just couldn’t help adding a bit, then a bit more!
That long wriggly piece behind the photo is a waste piece! Never throw out any interesting shapes – you never know when they will come in handy!
I layered up the background with Dusty Attic texture paste, some Dusty Attic stencils and, of course, Dusty Attic paint! I added some Magicals for extra pow. I’ve used Tinby Designs Metallic Melts on the frame, words, squiggly waste piece and hearts. I love this effect! 
Do you like the frame? – that’s my own design! I love the funkiness of it.
Don’t you just love these little hearts? They come in a pack of a mix of shapes and are fantastic value. You can use them on just about any project.
The triangles were made using a Dusty attic stencil that was made specifically for the escape2create retreat last year. I use it a lot!
The Dusty Attic products I used are:
Winged Frame Set DA 1343
waste piece from Lacy Border #3 DA 1344
Mini Hearts #2 DA 0990

And of course, my ever-faithful….

(I use this to glue everything!)
These are some of Heather’s other creations from during the year as a little re-cap for you for more inspiration
Happy scrappin’!
