Mood Board Inspiration

Trust your heart – Adri Du Preez

Hello everyone!
Here is my layout inspired by the stunning August mood board, and featuring Dusty Attic chipboard pieces.  
For this layout, I used the 49 and Market Vintage Artistry Airy pattern paper from the Essential collections and rub-ons and ephemera stack elements from the Vintage Artistry Coral and Natural collection. 
This is the mood board.

 and here is my layout.

All the chippies were first covered with a layer of white gesso.
I covered the Botanical Ringlet with Americana Acrylic paint in Mint Julep Green, Gooseberry Pink, and dry brushed with white acrylic paint, cut it in half, and used the other half under the large butterfly.  I used the mini tab “trust your heart” as my title.

The nest and eggs were painted with Americana Acrylic paint in Traditional Brunt Umber, Grey Slate, and, dry brushed with white acrylic paint.
The small branch was coloured with Distress Oxides in Mowed Lawn, Iced Spruce and Ground Espresso.

The Christmas Berries were painted with Americana Acrylic paint in Gooseberry Pink, and dry brushed with white acrylic paint. Foliage #23 was painted with Americana Acrylic paint in Oyster Beige.

The final touches to this layout included art stone and splatters with diluted white gesso.
