It's Denise here today to share my take on this month's mood board.
I created this mixed media page of my Grandparents.
I used the gorgeous Barn Market vintage papers from Riddersholm Design.
I did some intricate gesso stencilling around the photo too.
The gorgeous chipboard piece is a Blue Fern Studios piece and was aged, using gesso and all purpose ink.
I also did a fair amount of stamping on the background too.
I really love how this vintage page turned out. Vintage certainly does not have to be dark and dreary,
So now it's your turn to show us your takes on the mood board.
Our wonderful Sponsor this month is:
Established in 2000, 7gypsies has enjoyed being a part of the craft and scrapbooking industries. 7gyspies has taken a few journeys along the way, with the caravan’s final destination with Canvas Corp.
a bit of the 7gypsies story…
A young architect who wanted to be a painter met an Australian school teacher with a penchant for collecting things. They married and traveled the world together, having 7 kids on 3 different continents. As age mellowed them, they settled in the southwestern US and began designing for the scrapbooking industry, drawing upon a lifetime of traveling and experiences.
