Mood Board Inspiration

You and Me – Deb Stephens

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.
