A Captured Moment - Farrel Tailor - March Mood Board Inspiration

Good Morning Dusty Attic Fans!! Today I am sharing with you all my take on the March Mood Board Challenge.
For my layout, I decided to use the pink and blue tones along with some flowers.
Farrel Tailor Layout
The papers I used some oldies by Prima - Printery Collection and Almanac Collection. To create a watercolour effect, I used the smooshing technique with Distress Oxides Broken China and Tattered Rose. I also added some text stamping to the background.
I covered all my chipboard using White Gesso. For the Mini Captions #11 title piece, I used Dylusions Vanilla Custard Spray and lightly dabbed onto the chipboard with a sponge.
Here I have used Marrakesh Trellis Small and have trimmed around the outside to remove the border and covered with white gesso. Once dry, I then sprayed some Dylusions Spray Vanilla Custard and then lightly dabbed some Dylusions Paint Peony Blush using a sponge.
Next I used Iron Garnish #3 and again used the Dylusions paint Peony Blush with a small amount of white paint to tone it down a little and applied it with a sponge. I then cut the chipboard down the center to create a corner border.

To finish off the layout, I added some stitching stamps by Bo Bunny and some flowers by 49 and Market.

Capture this Moment - Nicole Doiron

Hello all you wonderful Dusty FANattics!

I am Nicole, back with you this month with another project with lots of
chippies, this time inspired by the gorgeous March mood board challenge.

Here's a look at the March mood board:

Seeing all these beautiful flower images on the board, I absolutely
wanted to capture the same elegant feel and delicate colour palette.

On my base of gorgeous Lemoncraft papers, I used the Chicken Wire stencil with just black archive ink. I chose the title Capture This Moment which I covered with blue embossing powder and then dabbed with Oceania Dusty in Colour paint as well as some white.  The 'This' part was painted with the Dusty Pink shade.

This piece below is called Leafy Flourish #2 and is part of so many beautiful flourishes offered by Dusty Attic. There are some for every taste! I used snow white embossing powder on it and then dabbed with Oceania and Dusty Pink.

In my flower clusters, I added several blooms of the Succulents Mixed set, some of which I also covered in white embossing powder and others with fuschia, dabbed with some white. I absolutely love these flowery designs!

The Doily #2 is an older piece from Dusty Attic but still a favorite of mine. I have plenty in my stash as I remember I loved it so much at the time that I bought it in not doubles, but quadruples! I created a marble effect on it with white embossing powder and the blue and pink shades of Dusty in Colour.
The pretty butterfly is from the Flutterbies #1 set. I just simply cut off its wings on one side as I wanted it to use it as it posed lightly on the Ticket.

I had the perfect picture for this project... my friends' adorable little girls, one dressed in pink and the other in blue. Perfect, indeed!

I hope you like and that I have inspired you to play along to this month's challenge!

I altered the chipboard with first priming the pieces with black gesso. I then applied clear crackle paint onto some of the pieces. Once the crackle dried I painted the pieces with the black emerald, iridescent gold or chocolate & diamonds.....

In this cluster I used the tropical foliage, waffle blossom, ferns, 49 and Market flowers & some metal pieces. I also altered the flowers with removing the flower centers, painting them with watered down H20's black emerald & chocolate & diamonds, then I glued on pieces of metal as the flower centers...

I did some chipboard layers, chains onto the winged frames, cogs & metal onto the industrial scrolls....
