Hi Everyone! Amy here with you today, sharing a page inspired by this month's Moodboard.
The photo here was taken on our recent trip to the southwest of Western Australia. A quaint rustic place we stayed in near Balingup - just love W.A!
Here is my design...
... and here is the Scrapping Clearly Moodboard!
Once I had chosen my base sheet, I applied white gesso mixed with Dina Wakley Heavy Body Acrylic Paint - Blushing. I also used the small Ranger Gel Press Brayer - this is one of my favourite 'go-to' tools ever!
Once dried, to provide texture, through a stencil, I applied Matisse Light Modelling Paste, in various areas.
To break up the pink and white I added splatters of Art Alchemy paint in 'Red Wine' mixed with water.
After the base sheet was complete it was time to work on the layers behind the photo.
I was inspired by the lace fabric from the Moodboard - from my stash, I tore strips of sewing pattern and music sheets. I have placed it over a white lace doily from D-lish Scraps. I have wrapped rustic twine over the page horizontally. As pictured, you can see I carefully dipped my paper flowers in the Colour Blast Colour Spray - 'Love'.
On some more left over music paper, I smeared some more of the 'Love' Colour Blast Colour Spray and punched out a large love heart and placed it onto the page. I decorated the heart with enamel dots - My Minds Eye - Good Vibes Collection.
For the layers behind this photo I used some scraps of both the pattern and music sheets that I had painted with Dina Wakley in 'Blushing' mixed with white gesso.
I stamped with a clear acrylic stamp from the Prima Finnabair Vintage Vanity Collection.
I have included a Heidi Swapp decorative tag here. I have stapled these layers together with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tiny Attacher from the store.
Finally, in this little cluster here I have used a metal flower from my stash with a pink enamel dot from My Mind's Eye - Good Vibes Collection. The title was hand die-cut by me.
It was really nice to be working with pink - I hope you get a chance to play along with the Moodboard this month.
Thank you for dropping by, Amy
