So this is the January Mood Board.

I was inspired by the theme and the colours for my project and decided to create a small beachy themed canvas featuring my kids.

‘Paradise Found’

To create the main focal point of my cluster and to frame my photo I used the larger window and shutter from the Window & Shutter 3 set.

The chipboard was given a very heavy wash of white gesso as I wanted it to be as white as possible. In amongst the flowers I have placed a piece of the small sea grass chipboard which was also painted white.

To add interest to the background of the canvas I added a few pieces from the Broken Mesh set. The base of the cluster started with a large scroll border piece.

I turned the window & shutter sideways to accommodate the landscape photo. I trimmed away the centre piece of the window so that it draws the eye into the window.
