Mood Board inspiration - Joanne Bain, Helena Johansson AND Patrica Basson

I LOVE how the mood board can be interpreted in so many ways have a look at these THREE Design Team members and how they have such  different takes on the same Mood Board 
I hope it inspires you to create this weekend and join in the competition to win a
$100 Dusty Attic Gift voucher 

Just sharing my latest creation created for the July Dusty Attic Mood Board Challenge. The challenge  has an amazing prize of a $100 Dusty Attic Gift Voucher for the winner and to enter you simply need to use the Mood Board for Inspiration, you can interpret it anyway you like. The only requirement is that Dusty Attic chipboard is used in your creation. Once completed simply add your link to the right side bar of the Dusty Attic blog.
So this is the August Mood Board.

And this is how I interpreted it.
This month I decided to do something a little different and I chose to create a canvas.
I was inspired by the word 'Rustic' and the colours of the old barn. I loved the old weathered and rusted look of it.
I used some chipboard chain and mini fence palings as the base of my creation and worked up from there.
I once again wet the chipboard pine sprigs to allow them to be pulled apart for extra dimension.

I applied texture paste roughly to most pieces of chipboard to give that aged look and feel to the chippy.

I finished of the canvas with some gorgeous Prima flowers and a super cute photo of my favourite little man.

and now some inspiration from

Hi! Today I'm sharing a layout created using the August inspiration board from Dusty Attic. Amazing colors this month!! I love purple, and decided to go with those colors, adding some yellow and black accents. 

The photo is of our little puppy, when she was just a couple of months old. She loved to escape - took every chance :)

The Arch Window (DA0570) I painted with Dusty Attic in colour (soot), misted with gold mist and finished off with Dusty Attic Clear gloss varnish. I cut the windows and opened them, creating a view of our little puppy running in the garden. 

I have used the beautiful Spring Blooms #4 (DA1287). I painted this chippie with Dusty in Color Lavender Blush, Raisin and Hot Chocolate, finished with Clear Gloss Varnish.

Tucked in under the flowers you can spot Foliage #4 (DA1294), painted with Dusty in Colour Cashmere and Clear Gloss Varnish. The title Escape (DA1266) was treated the same way. I love how the yellow pops on the black and purple here!

I have used a couple of Dusty in Blooms too, Evening Blush (DA0808).

Thank you for stopping by today!


For this months Inspiration Board challenge from Dusty Attic, I was inspired by the Yellow and Purple colours...not colours that I usually use, but I felt like making a fun and playful page for once...I was inspired by these photos from Michelle taken at least 7 years how time flies!!!

It is so easy to take part in our monthly Inspiration Board Challenge. The only "rule" is that you use some Dusty Attic chipboard on your masterpiece. Just add your link, name and country to the side bar on the Dusty Attic website to win a $100 Gift Voucher.

I gesso'd the Elegant Frames and Painted them with Dusty Colour Lavender Blush and Sunshine. To get the shades I was looking for, I mixed a drop of Berries Mixed Media Inx refill into the Lavender Paint and a tiny drop of Mustard Seed Distress Ink refill into the Sunshine Paint. They mix beautifully and thus one can achieve the precise shade you want...
I also stamped on the Yellow for some added interest.

I painted the Snapshot title and xoxoxo with Sunshine Yellow and embossed randomly with Lapis Lazuli Blue Gold Embossing Powder from Lindy's Stampgang.

No flowers on this page except for some fussy cut ones, I did some inking and stencilling on the background.
From the Dusty Shop I used the following...


Do you know that Dusty Attic is now carrying awesome Stencil Designs and Texture Paste as well and can be purchased from the website with the paints and chipboard ???
