This wonderfully colorful mood board was put together by the very talented Heather McMahon. I was inspired by the vividness of the colors and by the tree.
The theme of thankfulness also inspired me as I feel very blessed to have two beautiful children( now young persons!) in my life.
I can see now that the purple frame is not quite straight, but hey nothing on a tree is straight either!! LOL
I flicked Lindy's Stamp Gang Prima Donna Purple across the 12x12 bazzil page to start with, along with some Starburst Bling-y-Blonde.
I downloaded a shape of a tree and cut it out from Kraft-tex paper which I had already colored with Lindy's Stamp gang starburst Sassy Sapphire.
I went to sew it with my sewing machine and found the connection between the foot and the machine wasn't happening so had to sew it by hand!!
The flowers are from Green Tara and Kaisercraft.
I strung the crystal beads and tucked the strands behind the photos,(thanks to my sister for giving them to me after a beading passion!)
I also used a Heidi Swapp tree Stencil and Faber-Kastell Whipped Spackle colored with the Sassy Sapphire spray.
I embossed the picture frame, Scrapmatts string circles, the Dusty Attic word" blessed" and the flying bird with Lindy's Stamp gang Drop Dead Diva set -Purple, along with the wooden owl and butterfly.
The leaves on the stenciled tree on the left were colored with the purple spray and are from Kazzazz.
There are also a couple of hat pins I made with bright pretend pearls threaded onto them!!
The life button was given to me at one stage as was the butterfly die.
Hope you like it!
