July Mood Board Challenge - Just Fly


Hi everyone CAROLE  here with you today with our  July Mood Board Challenge.

This month we bring you a little magic with our Mood Board  which is all about the fantasy genre! Dig into your fantasy books, watch Game of Thrones, put on your fairy wings and take your imaginaton to a new dimension!


Trouble is I do not possess fantasy books and I've never watched the Game of Thrones, so this was a really big challenge for me and way out of my comfort zone!
For my layout, taking inspiration from the board was very difficult for me. In the end, I decided to use all the colours and the wings for my layout.
HERES HOW 
Matt photo onto black cardstock
Lightly adhere to page and start layering up with all the coloured cardstock, four layers in total
Now add the butterfly
Die cut and stamp out ivy, add paint, glitter and ink, adhere around the photo
Add some titles.
And there you have it.
SCRAPPY STASH
Background paper from BLUE FERN STUDIOS
Title stickers - 7 DOTS STUDIO
Ivy stamp and dies - HEARTFELT CREATIONS
Cardstock - black, white, aqua, purple and green
Blue pearl paint, brown ink, glitter glue, butterfly from my stash.

"Discover" - art journal page by Jessika

Hi guys!

Jessika here today with a page from my moleskin art journal. The mood board this month is so magical!


I wanted to make something shiny and sparkly! So I used metallic paints, gold color bloom spray and glass glitter from finnarbair to achieve that.

I really wish you could see how it shines.  :)


The whole page is first coated with black gesso and then I also used black gesso through a star stencil.




I used chipboard from 2crafty and they got the same treatment as the background, black gesso and metallic paint.


I am really looking forward to see what you can create with this amazing mood board! 
See you soon!

Art Journal Page - Denise van Deventer

Hello Everyone

It's Denise here today, to share my take on this months mood board! ;-)

Here's a reminder of the board first.


This board certainly challenged me to try something different.
So I created an art journal page.


I used the Enchanted Garden collection from BoBunny, along with some stencils, stamps etc.


I created a little scene, with fairies, foliage, dragonflies, stars and the moon.


I wanted to use a "magical" sentiment and so found this gorgeous quote -
"She wanted to touch dragonflies and stars, 
Dance with fairies and talk to the Moon"

So this was the inspiration for the scene that I created.


I used a tree die-cut and some Distress ink to create the tree images and was rather pleased with how that turned out on the page! ;-)

So now it's your turn and we hope you will join the challenge!
