Moodboard Motivations

This month the design team are working with this deep, rich moodboard

Kelly-ann Oosterbeek is kicking off this post with a layout inspired by all the vintage colours and fob watches found on this moodboard.

Kelly-ann says:
I loved this mood board for inspiration ... in my head Browns/blacks/clocks = vintage.
 I've used a pretty basic background paper for this layout but touched it up with ink and watercolour paints. I also used watercolour paints on all the chipboards and those tufts of grass you can see at the base.

Using watercolour paint can create a beautiful patchy look that mimics age ... here I've painted with brown but used watered down white over that to give a chalky look to the finish.

Water colour paint also has the added bonus of soaking into the chipboard very effectively saving you from having to painstakingly cut in around the edges.

Thanks Kel.

Next we have Sandi Spink with an inspired layout on black.

Sandi says:
I was inspired by a workshop I attended last year held by our wonderful Louise Nelson, the background is a rolled section of white gesso and used a spatula to scrap lines into it whilst wet. I used an antique gold paint to coat the chipboard 'Dress' and Distress Oxide Ranger ink on the 'Now' arrow. The clock/cog piece was covered in Silver Versa ink and then embossed with Tinby Melallic Melts 'Paline'.

Thanks Sandi.

The talented Louise Nelson herself is next...

For the November theme Louise thought outside the box completely! 

Louise has created 3 pairs of fun and funky earrings using her own designs.

 Whilst they wont last forever they will certainly be fun to wear whilst they do.

Louise was inspired by the mood board to use 2 of the colours; black and silver.

FANTASTIC projects girls, thanks for the inspiration.
