'Find joy...'

Hi everyone! It's a new month and so we have a new Moodboard. Today my share is inspired by this May Moodboard! 

And so this is my take on this Moodboard.

This tag was a challenge for me, as it involved lots of paying around with ideas and working with different mediums from the store.

For the background I used various layers of mediums from the store: Distress Oxide in 'Fossilized Amber' and 'Frayed Burlap'; Dina Wakley Heavy Body Paints in 'Elephant', 'Stirling' and 'Night'; and Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks.

For the next layer I used roughly applied ColourBlast Colour Paste in 'Steel' and Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint in Gold. To give a rustic look I used a heatgun close enough until bubbles formed. Then, for more depth, I stamped randomly over the surface with Stazon ink in 'Jet Black' with my favourite Prima Finnabair Vintage Vanity Collection clear acrylic stamp. 

Next, I added splatters of white acrylic paint mixed with water to allow good flow. 

Once the background was complete I set to work on my large cluster. In it I used a chipboard coloured with both ColourBlast Colour Paste in 'Steel' and Art Alchemy paint

From the store I used Prima Flowers; Advantus - Tim Holtz - Idea-ology - Keyholes; Heidi Swapp decorative tag - inked with Distress Stain in 'Faded Jeans'. The wood veneer is from my stash - you can find other wood veneer products to your liking in store.

I have scattered some Studio Calico Essentials - Chip Shapes Stars in black / grey around the page. 

Finally, for the title, I used the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Collection - Small Talk

Take a look at these close-ups. 

It was great fun creating this tag, with the inspiration of the colours from the Moodboard. It did take time, as was experimenting and playing around with the mediums but that's the beauty of art, right?
I hope you can find some scrapping time and have a go.

Ciao for now.
