My Page   "Daydream"
What inspired me with this beautiful mood board was  the fabric with all its soft folds. So I have included tulle, muslin and lace on my page. The distressed frames in the last image on the board prompted me to use part of an ornate picture frame & the metal keys inspired the use of metal flowers that I embossed for extra texture. The sketch is perfect so I followed it exactly.
I've worked directly onto chipboard. Applied gesso, textures, papers, paint and inks.

Metal flowers embossed with Stampendous Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel.
Thanks for visiting me! Have a fun and creative week.
