Dream - Rajni Chawla - Mood Board Inspiration

Good morning all!! 

A loud and a big Hello to all my Dusty Attic fans. I am back after a long time. Missed to inspire you last month due to my ill health. I am feeling better now and trying to get back to my regular routine. 

There's no denying that your kids are like a reflection of your younger self. And when I look at my daughter, I can't help but believe in this fact even more. She's almost exactly like me in every respect - a little confused about what she has to do, over enthusiastic about everything and fascinated by all forms of art. That said, these days, rarely does she enter my craft room and to help me along with project because of her exams. But whenever she does, she ends up creating a masterpiece. Something similar happened this time as well.

I was just thinking about how to start this project when she came and offered to help me. Guess what...She herself decided what she wanted to create. The project that I am sharing today with you all is 80 percent made by her. I was trying not to disturb her as I knew, she is very moody and she might leave everything and go. The way she was selecting chipboards and the way she was looking at the mood board and selecting colors….it was really an amazing feeling for me….as if she is filling up all my dreams. She created an art journal for herself. Here are the details.

Here is the gorgeous May Mood Board

Here are the picture details.

Full View:

Look at the gorgeous assembling of all the elements. Loved the super grungy collection of Dusty Attic chippies and the word chippies. Beautifully layered one on top of each other.

All the chipboards were first primed with heavy white gesso and then textured using DA Texture Paste.  She has used DA Blueprint DREAM to create the title of her art journal.Different layers were created using DA Cogs #1, DA Jumbo Cogs and DA Nuts and Bolts set   The main focal image is created using DA Feather Charm #2 . Feather Charm is dusted with clear glitter using soft gel.

Though she also created textures with DA Clockwork Stencil also but it's hardly visible on the front cover but it shows perfectly on the back of the journal.

look at the beautiful textures she gave on chipboards. Dusty Attic Paints used are Dusty in Colour Navajo White, Dusty in Colour  Raisin, Dusty in Colour Dusty Pink, Dusty in Colour hot Chocolate.

Little more close up showing more texture details...
She added few pearls to add extra beauty to the project.

Hope you all liked her first attempt.
Do leave some love to build up her confidence.
