'A Perfect Moment'

Hi everyone! Amy here. A new month and a new Moodboard - yay! 
This Moodboard is a beauty - on so many levels - from the colours and tones to the subtlety of the textures.

I have here a photo captured from our accommodation during a recent trip to Western Australia. I thought that the photo was just the thing to match this gorgeous Moodboard...

... and so this is my take on this Moodboard. 

I do have to admit that I found this Moodboard challenging to do, as I tend to do more brightly coloured and masculine-looking projects - being the mother of two boys. However, it was good to be out of my comfort zone and I am kinda happy with how this page came together.

I started the layout on a base of white cardstock primed with gesso. I then added a sheet from the Kaisercraft 'Ooh La La' collection from the store. This collection is full of gorgeous vintage-style papers. Next I added some stamping with a Kaisercraft background stamp.

For the circles, I simply dipped the lid of my Colourblast Colour Spray bottle into stamping ink and stamped randomly around the page. 

I splattered both 'Love' and 'Roadbase' Colourblast Colour Spray over the page. 

From here, more layers were applied to this page. Again, I used the Colourblast 'Roadbase' and 'Love' - with water - over the background. 

Once this was fully dried, I splattered the background with Dina Wakley acrylic paint in 'Sterling' and Prima Art Alchchemy paint in 'Red Wine'

Next I applied modeling paste over The Crafter's Workshop Mini Circle Stencil, to break up the background a bit. 

Once this was dried, I adhered my photo down with layers behind it.

For the layers, I used some items from my stash, as well as fussy-cutting some shapes from the Kaisercraft 'Ooh La La' collection

To finish off the page, I added some sequins for bling, and punched and inked some flowers from the Kaisercraft papers

Finally, for the subheading, I used the Tim Holtz Idealogy Collection Small Talk

I hope you can find a little inspiration from my layout and have a go creating your own project.

Thank you for dropping by.

Ciao, Amy.
