Dusty Attic July Inspiration/Mood Board Challenge and a layout.

Good Morning my sweet and talented Dusty Attic Lovers!! We are here with another month gone by and the delicious Inspiration/Mood Board Challenge in full swing! You can interpret the colors any way you want!! You can use the words for interpretation. Either way, these board can really get your mojo started, as it does for me.

The Great And Powerful Oz!!!
When I think of Poppies, I think of The Wizard Of Oz. When Dorothy and her entourage  fell asleep in the field of Poppies. I LOVE that scene in the movie. The words in the Inspiration board this month remind me of that scene. I used the  Blazing Poppy Collection from Heartfelt Creations to create my poppies. What I really love, is Dusty Attic Chipboard!! Sometimes just 1 piece can take center stage on a project. And this large piece from the Floral Frame set is it. I primed the frame with gesso. Once it was dried, I sprayed my non stick Craft mat with Lindy's Stamp Gang spray in Caribbean Blue and placed the frame primed side down and swirled it into the spray. I repeated this with the Luscious Lime spray once the blue dried. I added some pearl jewels here and there and started my flower placement.

I created the flowers from the Heartfelt Creations Blazing Poppy set. The leaves are from Heartfelt Creations Beautiful You Cling Stamp Set. You can mix and match stamp sets to achieve different styles. Just like you can mix and match Dusty Attic Chipboard to achieve a different design! I colored the flowers  with Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays.

I trailed a leafy vine with flowers on it at the end of the Dusty attic Floral Frame. The frame  is a gorgeous open ended circular design. It really does just make the whole page!

I found the photo of the poppies  on Pinterest. The colors were just perfect/ Even though the Dusty Attic Inspiration Board color was a bit more on the pinkish side. I let my creative imagination get away from me. I saw Poppy Red!!! But touching up the green leaves with the same red, left the lighter  pinkish color just like in the Inspiration board!! Win Win...

I just wanted you to get another view of the flowers! They were a lot of fun to create!!

Just a closeup of the flowers. I also sprayed the underside knowing that it would show in the layout as well.

I found this quote on the web. I printed it out and just cut out the words, inked the edges and placed them on my layout.

Here is the gorgeous Inspiration Board. Aren't the colors simply yummy!!?? So calming..My red color just pops off the page (get it?? Pop...Poppy??) Sorry...Red isn't so calming, but the balance is there. And it is more of a pinkish red. Not so harsh.

Your poppies are a work of art. Love the "dressed" chipboard.
