For we carry the heavens with us - Patricia Basson - Mood Board Inspiration

This months Dusty Attic Moodboard is filled with beautiful Pinks and Purples...Not my usual go-to colours but boy am I happy with how this page turned out!

I used an image that I found on Pinterest added by  Angelika Mitchell Photography. 

I used papers from AB Studio, 2 Sheets from Enchanted Flowers. Page 5 - Sadness is my main page and from Page 6 - Fear of the Unknown I punched a border and also used a thin strip on the right-hand side. I used a Finnabair Stencil and Paper Texture Paste and also Cotton Candy Pink Spray from Lindy's Stampgang on the background for added texture.

All of the chipboard pieces were treated with a clear gesso in preparation. I mixed a little Pink Rainbow Color granules from 13Arts into some Paper Paste and applied it to the small Lacey Frame with a sponge applicator. I then cut it in half and placed it on opposite corners of the photo. On the Antique Frame I added Cosmic Shimmer's Lava Paste mixed with Matte Pink paint from 13Arts. I did not mix it properly in order to have different shades of Pink. When heated with a Heatgun it puffs up to a soft Marshmallowy texture!

The Bluebells sprigs I painted with Vivid Green, Matt Pink and Metallic Violet paint, all from 13Arts. And I had to add some form of Bling with the Pink Rhinestones on the Flowers.

I have to admit that I really love how my trees turned out...I decided to use what I had on my table to treat them with. Thus I took some Lava Paste and mixed it with a little Rusty Brown Wax and a tiny bit of Vivid Green paint. After puffing it I also dabbed some of the French Sage Artisan Powder on it and Voila...Very realistic looking Forest Trees...I also layered them in three different depths to create more interest.    

On the Monarch Butterfly I added Multi-colored foil. I placed a Translucent Tim Holtz Wing behind it. On the Grass Polls I added Lava Paste, colored with Pink and Green Paint. The Bird Nest was colored with Rusty Brown Matt Wax from Finnabair with some French Sage Artisan Powder brushed onto the wax. 
I placed some Tulle between my flowers to replicate the gorgeous Fairy dress in the photo.

The Wooden Fence got a layer of Crackle Accents. Then the same Rust Brown Wax and Artisan Powder. I also touched the Fence, Trees and Bluebell Flowers with a little Old White Matte Wax.

Soft moss a downy pillow makes
      And green leaves spread a tent,
Where Faerie folk may rest and sleep
      Until their night is spent.
The bluebird sings a lullaby;
      The firefly gives a light:
The twinkling stars are candles bright,
Faeries all, 
Good Night.
~Elizabeth T. Dillingham, "A Faery Song"~
