Maja Designs January Mood Board

Hi there, are you ready for a new challenge. The Maja Designs Mood Board is up and it's gorgeous!!
Head over to the Maja Blog to see the rules and check out the amazing creations from the other Creative Team Member.

Here is my take on the mood board

Here are the Maja Rules
We are using mood boards for our challenges. We truly believe in creativity and art at Maja Design. You are free to interpret the mood boards in any way you’d like. They are supposed to set you in an inspirational mood without too much controlling. We would like you to be inspired by the poems, words and photos. They are not given rules, they are just there as inspiration. Feel free to use any Maja papers you’d like as long as they follow the colour scheme.
We will pick a winner and present it here on the blog January 25th.
Have in mind that these challenges are a really great way for us to discover new talents and maybe some future Creative Team members…

Here are my close ups

I used the Vintage Spring Collection paper, 5th of May, 4th of May and 7th of April.
From the mood board I used the colours of the board, the clock photo and the words - texture, clock and love as inspiration.
I used mists, stencils, Gelatos and modelling paste to add interest to the background. I have lots of paper layer which I tucked some twine and a doily in-between.

I used Blue Fern Chipboard Garden Lattice Bits and the title Perfect from the Perfect, Adorable, Special pack. These are all coloured with Finnabair mica powder in Vintage Pink

The clock details on the background are from using the Tim Holtz Clock stencil with Gelatos

I finished the layout off by adding cheesecloth, glass glitter, micro beads and pearls.

Thanks for visiting today
