Here is my interpretation on April’s mood board challenge.
Pink can sometimes be challenging for me, but with the variety of tones to choose from in this months board, I picked the shades that appealed to me and went with a simple mixed media Layout. It started on a 12×12 Canson watercolour sheet and I applied Prima Graphite paste through the Fan Stencil (DA1320) and while the paste was still wet , I sprinkled sections with copper embossing powder and heat set it. I then sprinkled on some Lindy’s Stamp gang colour shot powders and sprayed with water to move around and then dried it. I then spot stamped some grid lines and text around the page with black Archival ink.
After that I painted the Mini Cogs DA0689 with black gesso and applied Lindys Starburst powder in Iced Alpine. Then I embossed the two Industrial Scrolls (DA1542) with Tao Sunset embossing powder mixed with some Red and Gunmetal Grey embossing powder as well and heat set.
I then finished off with flowers and stalks in various sizes from my stash and some from 49&market in Midnight and Rustic Blooms. I added a Tim Holtz charm and some black and clear diamantes and red beads in various spots. The last step was adhering the word chip from the Wordpl@y #4 Black – DA1788 set onto the photo.
I hope the April mood board inspired you to step outside your comfort zone and get creative with some gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard.
