Mood Board Inspiration

Simply Perfect – Jen Burns

Hello everyone, today I am sharing my take on the Dusty Attic Mood Board challenge for August, it is super sweet pinks and browns.

This photo of my gorgeous little grand daughter was taken at a park where she kept bobbing her head down and saying “Peek-A-Boo”.  This is just one of the many things that photographs do, evoke memories attached to them.

I started by spray painting all of my chipboard except the frame and title white. While it was drying I have covered the Distress Frame with the patterned paper and machine stitched around the edges of the pink background.

I have painted an ombre effect onto the Simply Perfect title with browns and pinks, and the pink of the little frames. I have added black card behind the mini hearts to make them “pop” and some of the patterned paper inside.

The Cherry Blossom tree and the cute little Songbird have been painted using the same brown for the branches and pink for the blossoms adding white, dark pink and light brown dots.

The flowers, leaves and bird are fussy cut from the Forest tea party paper. The chippy toadstools layered in between where a must along with the awesome dandelions, you can’t see them and not want to make a wish. 

The Forrest Friends Llamas are simply just too super gorgeous together with the cute little Forrest Friends Reindeer.  I have left them mainly white and just coloured their wool and scarves with fine tipped markers.
