Mood Board Inspiration

Reindeer Kisses – Adri Du Preez

Hello everyone!Welcome to the blog. Here is my layout inspired by the beautiful festive December mood board which features beautiful Dusty Attic chipboard pieces. 
This is a photo of my precious son and daughter-in-law I took a few years ago during one of our photoshoots.
Here is the mood board. 

and here is my layout.

All the chippies were first primed with a layer of white acrylic paint and then painted with Americana Acrylic paint.
I used the Oh My Heart ABC Set and Teeny Tiny ABC Set to create the title. I love the little laser-cut hearts on the letters. I painted the letters with Hauser Light Green and the one red “E” with Tuscan Red, and then lightly rubbed the letters with Platinum Stickles.  To the Reindeer word, I added glossy accents.

I lightly painted the Wordpl@y Festive Green and Hauser Light Green making sure I didn’t cover the engraved words. The edges were dry brushed with Tuscan Red and white acrylic paint. How stunning are these Christmas labels?  The ho ho ho and Bali border were also painted with Tuscan Red.

I painted the stars with Sour Apple and Tuscan Red, and then lightly rubbed them with Platinum Stickles, and glossy accents.

The berries and mistletoe were painted with Tuscan Red and Hauser Light Green. The berries were covered with glossy accents. 

I painted the Christmas Stockings with Tuscan Red and the Mini Scroll with white acrylic paint.  

The final touches to this layout included beads, glitter, and splatters with diluted white gesso.
