Hi everyone! It's THAT time again at Scrap Around The World - NEW CHALLENGE TIME!
This month we have another beautiful mood board from another of our fabulous designers, Zuzia Bodakowska from Poland. Check out the challenge post HERE & hopefully PLAY ALONG!! We have 6 awesome prizes each & every month plus a Guest Designer Position up for grabs...
I really loved this mood board! Of course I love them all but this one is really very versatile
with the different forms, colours & textures. I was inspired by the mood board as a whole.
Rarely do I focus on just one image or element, although that is totally allowed.
I was very inspired by the image of the lovely flowers & followed the main colours there -
the pale & darker pinks & yellows. The very dark background inspired me to use the
black acetate doilies (along with the picture of the doily curtains too of course) &
the text image inspired the use of my "Beautiful" title as the fonts are similar.
I used a 6" doily stencil on my base paper but moved it around a lot, only spraying parts
of it so as not to get the entire doily shape. I didn't use any modelling paste or gesso
because I wanted to keep everything really light. I used Color Bloom Sprays on the
base paper (pinks & yellows) then lots of splashing with white & black inks.
I used Prima 'Reception' paper from the 'Something Blue' collection.
I layered up Prima patterned chipboard from several collections along with
patterned papers from Time Traveler & Free Spirit, as well as doilies & book paper.
The frames I used on the top left of the cluster & the bottom right of it have been
in my stash for many years so I was delighted to find a home for them on a page at last :)
