April moodboard Challenge: "Everything old is new again."

Dear crafty friends,

Here I am with the new moodboard challenge of April; 
"Everything old is new again. It is all about old-world glamour." 

Because of my grandparents I am in love with old rusty vintage stuff, so I deciede to use my love for old rusty things for this month moodboard.

I have this great and gorgeous old vintage photography of James Dean. And love to use it for my layout to this moodboard. Found myself 3 pieces of gorgeous paper, but I couldn't choose. So derfor I decided to use all 3 of them. Tored the paper in different sizes of strips and layered them on the woodenboards. Aged it with some ink and rusty paste. And started to build it up in layers. I really enjoyed working on this one. So this is what I came up with: "Capture the Moment!"

If you wanne read and see more, please visit my blog:

And of course also some close-ups of my "Capture the moment" layout.

Hope you are getting inspired by my mood board and with my take on the moodboard as well. So looking forward to all the gorgeous art you will come up with.
