Mood Board Monday (Wild Soul)

Hey everyone, Kim here. Today I am bringing you in a little closer on my layout I created for this month’s mood board challenge.

So what is a mood board and how do I use it? Well, let me explain (kinda). Our mood board is a grouping of images (most of the time loosely linked to the kit contents) that when you look at them they will inspire a mood you want to created with your project. Sometimes you maybe inspired to use the same elements/colors/objects from the mood board in your project. Is that clear as mud on how the mood board works?

Here is this month’s mood board.

Doesn’t this get your creative mojo going? I just love the colors.

Here is what I created:

I was inspired by the ledger pattern, the flowers and some of the colors.  I had lots of fun creating this layout.

This is just a random photo of me.

How about some close-ups.

I did some misting in the background. I used some Prima mist in antique gold and boysenberry from my stash (they are a perfect match for this kit if you own them).

 

I embossed the chipboard with some Lindy’s embossing powder. The leaf and butterfly die cuts along with the  gold frame are from my stash.

I just showed you how  I was inspired by the mood board, now it’s your turn. Join the challenge, it’s a lot of fun to see where your creativity takes you. Remember you don’t have to be a subscriber to play along. The prize for winning will be worth it.

“Fun Days” Layout with Rae

Hello, friends!

I’m delighted to share my first project that I made using the October scrapbook kit, which you can purchase here: October Goodness.

For this layout I used the Prima Marketing Misty Rose papers in the kit. I started by adding clear gesso to the papers, once dry, I ripped the “Memorable Floral Wall” paper. I did some stenciling with some crackle paste. Then, I added water, then sprayed both pieces with water, then the 13 Arts Pearl Turquoise spray from the kit. I wiped up the excess moisture with a wet paper towel to expose the stenciling and lighten the color, then I used some brown distress ink around the edges, and glued both of the ripped pieces to the Prima “Scented Love” paper.

In this closeup below, you can see the stenciling detail, as well as the distressed look of the Dusty Attic Chipboard- I used Stampendous Frantage embossing powder in aged copper from my stash to achieve that mottled look.

In the middle, I placed my photo with a mat and cut some elements from one of the Prima papers for some ephemera layers, and made flower clusters on each side of the photo. The clusters are a combination of flowers from the kit as well as some from my stash. 

I added the beautiful white applique leaves to both clusters, as well as some leftover die cuts I had from my watercolor canvas that I will be sharing this month. They are cut from white cardstock, and painted with the Prima Marketing Metallic Accents from the October Mixed Media kit.

I also added a title using the 13 Arts chipboard panel- Fun Days, which I also sprayed with the 13 Arts Pearl Turquoise mist.

I added some white gesso to the flower clusters to soften the colors.

June Sketch Challenge Winner, and a layout with Rae

Happy Saturday!

Today I have a couple of things to share with you. First is the winner of our June sketch challenge: Donna Sergent! Take a look at this beautiful layout:

We LOVED the vintage vibe Donna created with this layout of a sweet young couple. The treatment of the chipboard frame looks amazing! The bits of ephemera and that cameo are perfect, not to mention those butterflies! Congrats, Donna! Your prize will be shipped with your next kit!

And, thanks to all who played along! We were blown away at all the gorgeous entries! Be sure to join us for our July mood board challenge!

I’m also sharing my first project made with the July scrapbooking kit, featuring the lovely Lemoncraft Violet Silence paper collection. For this layout I used the June Sketchabilities sketch.

I started out by cutting up the “wood” panel background paper in strips along wood lines, then I used a paper distress and added some brown distress ink along the edges for added dimension.

For my layers, I added the doilies from the kit, some paper layers, and added the Prima Marketing resin frame to the picture. I topped of the layers with butterflies I cut from one of the papers, the cream and purple 49 and Market flowers, as well as some small coordinating flowers from my stash. I also added the title “Shine” from my stash as well, which is a Dusty Attic piece that treated by adding some wax paste.

I added some stenciling of bricks to peek out from under the design. I used white crackle paste, then lightly used a foam applicator with brown distress ink over the crackles after the paste was dry.

I treated the Dusty Attic chipboard scroll by covering it with a thick layer of the Nuvo drops from the kit. While wet, I added a combination of gold and black embossing powder while the Nuvo drops will till wet, then used a heat tool to dry it- I let it bubble up to create this distressed old metal look.

I added the leaves under the flower cluster before gluing on the chipboard to the paper to create more dimension.

For this bottom cluster I added the smaller Prima resin frame, a tiny purple flower from my stash, and a Lemoncraft flair button to repeat some of the features from the main cluster on the layout.
