A peek into my scrappy life.

Create–13 Arts Mood Board



I’ve been wanting to create a piece of art for my blog header for some time now. All I knew is that I wanted it to say “Create”. 

I finally decided to give it a go, taking inspiration from the March mood board over at 13 Arts.


I used the blue/ teal colour, the dark background with a pop of gold, and I used the frame shapes as inspiration.20150309_104515

So this was my first attempt at this Finnabair style collage. I like the way the collage turned out, but I definitely need practice at the process of adding colour.

I started my base by adding Texture Paste through a stencil and then adding the bits and pieces of the collage using gesso. Then of course I added gesso over everything, before using various sprays and paints to get the final colour.

I almost made the whole thing white again this morning to start over, but decided to live with it like this for a while. Any tips or suggestions you may have are welcome!

Thanks for stopping by!
