Serenity in April

Hi there!

It's Heather McMahon back today with a layout I made using the seriously awesome April mood board for Off The Rails. Or should I say 'mood boards' as there were two to choose from!

Here they are:

I chose to use the first one as I loved the silver glitter with the lime green. Here's what I made:

To make the background, I first took a sheet of Webster's Pages Hall Pass 'Field Goal' paper and applied gesso through a Crafter's Workshop stencil:

I then rubbed a Gelato through another stencil, first by applying it directly to the stencil, then by rubbing it in further with my finger:

I then added some stamping - I used some frame stamps and some Kaisercraft 'Film Edges' stamps:

This is what it looked like when I had finished the background:

I then added a strip of chipboard chevrons from The Dusty Attic which I painted white and staggered behind my photo. I added some flowers, leaves and chevrons that were fussy-cut from Webster's Pages Beautiful Chic 'In Bloom' paper plus some silver twine:

The title and triangles are both from The Dusty Attic and I coated them with Beck BT's Tinby Designs Metallic Melts. I love the textural, sparkly finish on these:

 Happy scrappin'!
