Moody Blues by Toni

Hi everyone, hope you are having a creatively wonderful month. We have a new mood board over at Art Anthology and it's plump full of pretty inspiration.
Inspired by the different hues of blue, the circles, as well as the motif on the panel and the wood grain on the door. Here is what I came up with. 
I had this photo of my daughter in black and white and I recopied it in ombre effect blues to create this layout. The background was textured using texture paste, paints ran through a stencil. 

Splatters of the paints here and there as well as dipped my lids in the paint for more effect. 
The title were little pieces of wood that I used my crop-a-dial to make a whole, distressed with black soot DI and then spritz with water to provide a grungy effect. Added some brads and adhered to the layout. 
The addition of ribbons, flowers and chunky pieces of wood wrapped with wire added to the interest of the layout. 
Always believing that "it is in the details" I added crystal seed beads to my flowers as well as Stickles glitter glue to my butterfly. To the layout I also included Sterling German glass glitter to enhance the metallic in the photo. 
The wings I had in my stash, believe I purchased them from Michaels Arts & Crafts awhile back.  Hope you will be inspired by our mood board as I was in so many ways. For your enjoyment I have included a Snapguide tutorial below.  Creatively yours xoxo
