Mood Board Inspiration

Memories and Moments – Kim Arnold

Hi everyone! I am back with some more inspiration from this month’s beautiful mood board. The colours in this month’s mood board are so rich and vibrant and could work with any theme. I had this photo from the recent train trip I took with my husband and decided it worked perfectly with this 49 and Market collection that matched the mood board perfectly.

From the huge range of Dusty Attic chipboard, I chose one of the lovely, long multi-font titles, film strip, a hashtag word, some chevrons I had left from another project and some more of my absolutely favourite dandelions for this layout. I will take you through what I have used and what techniques I applied.

Moments and Memories Title DA3429

I started with the title, painting it with gold mica paint. This gold paint works perfectly directly on the chipboard and gives such a beautiful shine. I attached the title over the photo and really like how it sits between us on the photo. Long multi font titles are a real favourite of mine. By using a Dusty Attic title like this you can still have it cohesive by painting it all the same colour, but have the benefits of the different fonts. I also chose to reorder the words, going with Memories and Moments, rather than Moments and Memories.


I used the same colour on dandelions. I often use these dandelions with other flowers, but this time chose to use them by themselves, just tucking the stems behind other elements to hide the ends.

Mini Filmstrips 

Chevron Panel Small 

\Daily #4 

I used a translucent umber (brown) paint for the filmstrips, #thatwasfun from the daily word 4 pack and the chevrons. The chevrons are the pieces you might chose to discard from the chevron panel. I keep all of these bits and then use them as “arrows” on other layouts – a great way to get value from your products. The translucent brown paint really made the chipboard look like wood.

To make the film strips long enough, I cut them in half and covered the gap with the photo and photo mat. This is another way to get more use from my products.

I hope you have a chance to get some creative time in soon – maybe you might get a mood board inspired layout done!

Happy scrapping
