Mood Board Inspirations - Heather McMahon and Tina Ollett

We have two of our Design Team to inspire you today using the January Mood Board


I'm excited! The Dusty Attic have brand new products out and brand new mood boards for the challenges this year! They're all so scrummy!

Here's what I made for the January challenge....

I had a blast with the fabulous new chippies and stencils and the beautiful colours from the new mood board.

Here's the mood board for January - don't you just love the colours?

I started off using more blues and greens but, well, the pink kind of just spoke to me at the time!

I used  the gorgeous Scroll #6 as the main feature behind my photo. I painted it with gesso, sprayed it with pink mist then added pink Tinby Designs Metallic Melts to add that texture and shimmer to the piece. Using such a large feature piece as this meant I didn't need to add a lot more.

Can you see that white texture behind the chipboard? That's one of the new stencils called Webbings #2. This is my fave stencil ever!

I added in some stunning Dusty Attic flowers. I love that there are a variety of sizes and coordinating designs in each pack. I also spattered some silver and white Dusty Attic paint around the page.

I used a combination of alphas, word stickers and Dusty Attic chipboard letters to form the title - the same title from the mood board.

The Dusty Attic products I used are:

Scroll #6 DA 0578

Mini Script ABC Set DA0859

Webbings #2 Stencil DA1497

Dusty in Bloom Bridal Veil DA0805

Dusty in Colour Navajo White and Silver

Happy scrappin'!

This is such a stunning moodboard and all of my most favourite colours!
I hope you can join in with us this month and create a little something using inspiration from this month's board. There is a $100 Dusty Attic voucher to win!

My moodboard inspired layout titled

"Best Friends"

I have left this layout quite simple as the background page had such magnificent detail. I didn't want to distract from that. I only added a little extra Texture with Dusty Attic's Script Stencil and Texture Paste. The first of my Dusty Attic pieces was a newbie called "Swirly Frame" (DA1468). This piece was crackled and then randomly inked over the dried raised sections.

Foliage #2 was my next point of call. This was inked and then covered with Dusty Attic Clear Crackle Varnish. I always give them a very generous coating and leave to dry sometimes overnight. When dry, I wipe a little gesso over the cracks made and wipe off any excess. You can see the results of the crackle below.

A couple of close-ups for you to view. The Dusty Attic chippie "Best Friends" seen below was simply inked  and then dry brush with a little gesso .

And another..

You can see the beautiful texture here from the new release Script is soooooo gorgeous!!
Well that is all from me today. I hope I have inspired you in some way to give this month's moodboard a go!
