Mood Board Inspiration

Today’s memories – Kristy Abela

Once a year we have a very special day to Celebrate… 

When I visited my now hubby’s parents for the first time, Nine years ago, I noticed memorabilia on the wall referring to my birthday. I casually asked and discovered my in-laws were married on my birthday. Its been a big day of double celebration ever since… This was a few years back… However, this year they celebrate 50 years together… Congrats to them!

I have used this months Mood Board as inspiration for my page.You can enter your own creation into the comments section on the Dusty Fanattics Facebook page HERE

 I used the background to help bring the page to life. In this collection there was also a sheet that had abstract cut out elements that I fussy cut. I used them to shadow the original page. I added some modelling paste and sprinkled embossing powder on it. Once dry I heated it and got a variegated look. 

 Here are the elements I used to bring my page to life.

I have always loved matting… Modern pages have stopped using a quick easy way to draw the eye to a focal point so I thought I would play around with it on this months layouts. I added a squiggly frame to the photograph to help block out some of the background noise.

  My favorite element was the title.I used chalk paint and paint pens to create a weathered looking title and used white pen to accent it. I love the way the white lines give dimension to the 2D embellishments. 

I used lots of layering and foam tape to recreate the effect of layered flower. Stars were for wishes and hearts for happiness.
