Spread your wings – Amy Voorthuis (Mood board inspiration)

Hi everyone, 
When I got my massive DT box from The Dusty Attic I was so excited that I started right away!
I ordered the gorgeous two new collections at 7 Dots Studio and got that order in too…..
I knew right away that I wanted to enter their challenge using the Dusty Attic mood board at the same time. So for this layout I used two different paper collections and the word stickers and a bunch of chipboard.
 The picture I used is one I recently made of our handsome boy and his new haircut and I am very lucky to be his mother. 
Spread Your Wings: 
Did you already play with us this month at the Dusty Attic blog? If not you must give it a go because you could win a $100 give voucher and I have to tell you it’s worth it because they are a delight to work with!
Here is the mood board:

For this mood board I went in another direction as I would normally do….normally I would immediately take out my Maja Design papers and go for a white or light background but for this one I went with black/grey

The flowers I used are by Dusty Attic, Prima marketing and Petaloo I have to say those Dusty Attic flowers are so cute I wish I could swim in them hehe. I also used a couple of stencils and some amazing sprays, pastes, inks.

I think you can really combine rustic chipboard pieces with flowers on a masculine layout don’t you think so too? I am totally in love with the Nuts & Bolts they give your layout such a nice touch. The text strips are mostly by Tim Holtz with the exception if the “spread you wings” one that one matches my papers I used.
