Today’s share from me did not start out with the intention of being part of the November Moodboard but somehow it has evolved and those beautiful pinks and a tiny hint of red has snuck in on the timber photo corners – funny how that works out for you when you are not even trying. I hope to see your take on the Moodboard by the end of the month - it's a cracker!
So in the box today I have some awesome products that I had sitting on my desk from my last crafty play and surprisingly some were in their designated storage spot. I must have had a fairy cleaner pop in to help clean up & put things away for me.
12x12 Kraft Cardstock - that one didn't fit in the box
flair - i have used one from my stash but found these cool ones in the shop
Liquitex magenta ink - to dye the muslin
So lets get started.... first I picked out some of the pages from the Crate paper pad that complimented my photo... I had a little shuffling thing going on and cut a few down until I worked out my layers. After choosing the order and sticking them down with tape I decided to add a little black Archival Ink to my stamp and border the top and bottom of the photo with it. I then placed this on the page for placement . I marked it with some tape and then put it to the side.
Once dried I used a Tim Holtz Collections stencil and Modelling Paste to add another dimension and soften up the Kraft cardstock. Once this was dry - I cheated and used my heat gun, I put it aside and grabbed the Magenta Liquitex ink and dropped some onto some white muslin. I tore some small strips and tested for placement then sewed them on the page. Also while I was at the machine I added a stitched border and stuck the pre-prepared paper layers and photo in place. I then added stitching to the layers to help tie it all together.
All that was needed was a few more little embellishments including some Cocoa Vanilla Studio vellum flowers & tag, Kinder Kreations chipboard border that I gessoed. I also added a Heidi Swapp Acetate word
Finally some typed journalling was used to fill the space below the photo & a flair. I used wood veneer photo corners to help highlight the photo a little & a little bit more black stamping and Modelling Paste with the stencil up around the edges and corners.
I hope you have fun creating your Moodboard Challenge Layout this month
have fun - be messy
