Hi Crafty Friends,
The monthly mood board and its vintage feeling is so close to my my style. I decided to prepare a canvas in brown and that wonderful turquoise colour. I used so many techniques on the background. First of all I really like to upcycle the frames of the paper tags so I glued them to the canvas. After that I steciled some patters and coloured the background. Behind the photo there are may layers of papers. The rustic effects was made with mica flakes and other grainy embellisments. Fort he last step I stemped some non-figurative pattern to the canvas.
I hope you like the result.
Here is the mood board I used:

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.
The Canvas Corp family welcomes this amazing brand, with a penchant for preserving the original inspiration behind the brand. This catalog brings together vintage and brand new 7gypsies products.
