You are so Beautiful – Adri Du Preez (Mood Board Inspiration)

Hello everyone!

This is my layout inspired by the beautiful March mood board. I have never used red and orange on the same layout, and this colour combo might just be one of my favourites.

This is a photo of my little granddaughter that I took on Valentine’s Day.  I am so thankful that I have a daughter-in-law who loves photos and always allow me to take as many photos as I wish of the little ones.

Here is the mood board.

and here is my layout.

To create the background, I used a stencil and outlined the heart and arrow shapes with a white gel pen.  I also used my sewing machine to sew around the background paper. I then splattered with red and orange acrylic paint.

The next step was to colour the chipboard pieces.

The title was painted with black acrylic paint.
I only used one half of the beautiful String of Heart Frame. I painted the frame with red acrylic paint.  Once dry I covered it with glossy accents and sprinkled dry red glitter on top.

I painted the foliage with orange acrylic paint and dabbed with red, white and grey acrylic paint.  The leaves were painted grey and dabbed with white, red and orange acrylic paint.

The pieces of the Heart Attack Panel were painted with red acrylic paint.  The little heart centers were glued down randomly.  I also used Dusty Attic Pearls in the centers of my punched out flowers.

The page pebble and wordplay phrases were embossed with black embossing powder and filled up the engraved words with white embossing paste.  I allowed the paste to dry for a couple of seconds and then cleaned the excess paste with a baby wipe. 

These are the Dusty chipboard pieces that I used.

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I hope you find some time to play along with the mood board.  Please visit the Dusty Attic website for more beautiful chipboard designs.
