May Mood Board Challenge

I love this months Jot Magazines Mood Board Challenge of blues and greys.

Their challenges are always inspiring and I just love the colour combinations.

I chose a fun photo to scrapbook and thought the colours would suit.  Its a mini scrap book page of about 14X14cm.  We found his old safety glasses in the barn while tidying it up.  The lens flip up.    I splashed distress ink for the background and used some leftover scraps of gelli prints (brown and blue) and blue acrylic paint stencilled with paste. I added some unused yarn and washi tape.

Thanks again Jot Magazine for the challenges.  Love seeing them and participating when I can.

November Mood Board Challenge

With Jot Magazine

image

Jot magazine has a vibrant mood board challenge for November.

I just love vibrant, happy colours.

It inspired me to create a birthday card for my best, long time friend.

I dabbed acrylic paint to a floral stencil. Painted some shimmer on green and pink parts. Applied a light media paste which I coloured gold through a tear drop stencil. Printed ‘Happy Birthday’ with an elegant swirl on a laser printer and gold foiled with my recently brought Minc. Added a sticker, ribbon and flower.
Loving how it turned out.

I am enjoying using stencils and experimenting with distress inks and acrylic paint.

Thanks Jot Magazine for the mood board challenge.
