Relax – Michelle Van Oudtshoorn – Mood Board Inspiration

Hello Dusty Attic friends

I am so excited to present to you my first project on the Dusty Attic Design Team. A new year, and lots of new exciting projects for 2019 – I am so honoured to be part of this amazing team . Happy New Year to you all!  And oh boy the mood board for January is just amazing with my favourite colours to begin with, I am so in my happy place! Isn’t this mood board just absolutely gorgeous?

And here is my take on the mood board:

The background paper to this layout is from 49 and Market Island Paradise Collection and the paper “Time to Coast” – I also used some of the laser cut images

I started with stencilling the background using texture paste and then adding some muslin cloth over this before adhering my photos and Dusty Attic pieces. The chipboard is coloured using Metallic Gilding polish in shades of Mint, Mediterranean Blue, Ocean Teal, and Pearl Lustre.

 These are the chipboard pieces I used:
Note I turned this upside down when I used it on my page

Here I used the 2nd seaweed and after adding colour cut it in half and added to either side of my photo

I then added some Dusty in Bloom Blue Bonnet flowers, and finished off with Art stones. Once this was done I also then used some blue pastel and lightly brushed around the embellishments to give it the blue accent – I also brushed it on in the corners of my layout. 

Thanks for stopping by and hope that I have inspired you to take part in the mood board challenge for this month.
