Not Older, More Vintage – Nicole Doiron – May Mood Board Inspiration

Hello everyone!

Nicole here to share with you my project
inspired by the May Dusty Attic mood board challenge.

Here is this month’s classy and elegant mood board:

I was inspired to create a page about myself using some of the same colours and textures as in the images, including lace, white wash and pretty flowers.
I created a title by combining the Dusty Curls ABC Set and the Mini ABC Set Upper as well as the ‘vintage’ word from the Mini Words #3 pack.

I cut one of the gorgeous Corner Flourish #3 in 2 pieces, treating each piece a different colour of embossing powder to complement the colour palette. I then dabbed some white paint on them.
On my background, I chose to use the Lace Stencil to add a little texture.
I used gold embossing powder on the butterfly from the Flutterbies #1 set.

My favorite part of creating a project aside from playing with chipboard is searching my flower stash to pick the ones that will best fit my colour palette and theme. Needless to say, I have more flowers in my stash than I will ever be able to use in a lifetime!

And the many leafy flourishes from Dusty Attic are just perfect to extend the flower clusters on any layout.

I wanted to create this page to remind me that getting older doesn’t have to be a bad thing. I will be turning 45 next month and I’d rather see myself as getting more vintage rather than older.
