Mood Board Inspiration

Life is Beautiful – Adri Du Preez

Hello everyone!

Here is my altered embroidery hoop inspired by the gorgeous March mood board. My project is filled with so many elements, die cuts, flowers and of course stunning Dusty Attic chippies.

Here is the mood board.

Here is my project.

This is how I treated the chippies.

I randomly covered this beautiful floral frame with course gesso and then with white gesso. To colour the frame I used Americana acrylic paint in Antique Rose and Dusty rose and dry brushed with white gesso and Art Alchemy waxes Vintage Silk and Vintage Gold.

The title, leaves #2 and word disk were embossed with white embossing powder.

I inked the bird nests with Brilliance Chocolate and dry brushed with white gesso.

The leafy stem #2 were covered with white gesso and Americana acrylik paint in Antique Rose and Mint Julep Green. On the berries I used Glossy Accents and Distress Stickles dry glitter.

When I coloured the broken bits brick I had some left over white gesso and distress oxides on my craft sheet and dabbed them in it and magic happened.

some close ups.

When everything was glued down I added pearl beads, gold glitter and splatters with diluted white gesso.

These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I used.
