April Mood Board

Hello there! Amanda here today to share this month's mood board! I love Navy and Gold together and that was the start of this mood board. I started thinking about other colors I love paired with Navy and my mind went straight to shades of green like Lime and Kelly and lighter shades of blue like an Icy Blue or Pale Aqua. I figured if these colors all pair well with Navy they must look great all together! I nearly replaced the Gold with Charcoal Grey (which would be fab!), but what can I say, I'm a sucker for a gold accent! 

And here is my layout!

I recently purchased a large pad of watercolor paper to create 12x12 layouts with and this was my first time playing with it! I really love the water stained look you get using this versus regular cardstock with gesso.


Before using watercolors to create my background I stippled on a little Gesso and used the Bubbles stencil by Memory Box with modeling paste to create some texture. I added my watercolor, splattered on some mist and added several rub-ons before layering my papers and embellies.
