Mood Board Inspiration

Mischief – Lynette Jacobs

Hello Dusty Attic Fans!
Lynette here, welcome to the blog today. I am sharing my take on the January mood board. The mood board just shouts beach and I used a funny photo of my husband and grandson taken on a walking trail at Robberg Nature reserve in Plettenburg Bay.

Here is the mood board:

Chipboard pieces used to complete the page:

Word pack #6

Tropical Foliage #7


Mini compasses

Mini skeleton fish

Mini ships wheels
Some close up details:

I used white cardstock and applied some Weathered Wood Distress Ink through a stencil to break the white background.  I then cut apart a sheet of patterned paper with slats and threaded twine through it to create the image of a board walk.  I painted the tropical foliage with a green to match the leaves in the fussy cut images.

I used foam tape and layered the fussy cut images for dimension.

The title was heat embossed with Navy blue embossing powder.

The mini skeleton fish and compass was dry brushed with white acrylic paint.

Here I also used lots of foam dots to create dimension and layered the painted chipboard pieces between the fussy cut pieces.

I brought in more of the dark blue by adding Nuvo Crystal drops to the clusters.

I just love all the dimension…the fussy cutting was so worth the time it took.
