Sometimes you will never know ... Kareen Dion - Mood Board Inspiration

Hello everyone!

It's my turn to show you my interpretation of the moodboard this month.
But before that we will announce the 
MAY Moodboard Winners 
Both of these ladies receive a Dusty Attic chipboard pack. 



I must say that this month, it was an easy one for me. I absolutely love
those colors! 
Here is the moodboard : 

To enter the Mood Board Challenge now we have made it even easier. Just put your entry into the comments section in the Dusty FANattics Facebook page HERE

And here is my layout : 

Some close-ups : 
I used the "Quoted Sentiments #3" : Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory. I chose this quote because this picture was taken one week before they close (almost) everything due do the Covid-19. Who would have thought that we couldn't take that kind of picture right now?!! It seems so far, but yet, it was in March. I do really miss being with my friends.

I added some leaves from "Foliage #23". I simply embossed them with navy blue embossing powder.

I also used the "ATC Frame #7". I also put navy embossing powder with a little layer 
of white gesso to soften a little bit the look.

And a last close-up :

Thank you for stopping by and see you soon!

Such a great day... - Anguree Van Rensburg - Mood Board Inspiration

Hello dear friends

I'm back here today sharing my view on our gorgeous May Moodboard.

As you will see, I used various bits of chipboard and if you look closely you may notice that I cut up the Juliet balcony pieces to create texture strips to suit my layout.

I've coloured my Chipboard using Versa inks and 13@rts ink sprays.

To finish it off I used some of the beautiful new 49And Market flowers and 13@rts 3D Balls.

Last but not least I added a couple of my favorite chipboard wordplay words to reflect happy memories.

Products I used:

Thank you so much for visiting us today.
Hope to see you back here soon.

Love is in the Air - Kerstin Filou

Welcome creative friends!

May is known here to be the best month to get married. But in these difficult times it's not always easy connected with many difficult decisions,
 many celebrations are postponed.

So I needed a little joyful cheering present for a dog fan just like me. 
I created a mixed media collage in grunge style, 
which will be glued on a canvas and used as a new wall decoration.

some close up's

A friendly bright sunshine (stencil from DecoArt) 
added with white Modeling Paste and highlighted with golden wax creme

The edges were decorated with white crackling paste applied unevenly with a palette knife  and then stamped with a texture stamp and brown Archival inkpad

For the lettering I used a special dark blue embossing powder 'Salted Navy Enamel' from Emerald Creek 

afterwards I used golden and brown wax cream and finally everything was painted over again in dry brush technique with white gesso
