This is the beautiful and inspiring mood board designed by Kim Ewins.

7 Dots Studio 9th wave paper really does all the work on this page. I have added some embossed areas using stamps and masks, some water colour, alcohol ink and texture paste ( for the birds ) but this beautiful paper makes a fantastic starting point.
