The light and modern mood board of Scrap Around the world April’s challenge was made by Riikka Kovasin.
I was inspired by the crackled texture, the great light green and light blue color combo (it gives a great feeling for the spring) the hand drawn irregular circled lines and the butterflies. So here is my interpretation of the mood board, I called it Freedom of mind:
First I applied a layer of relief paste that crackles if you dry it with a heat gun. I colored my background with a light yellow-green ecoline.
Well, I still wasn’t satisfied with the crackle result, so I took my crackle prima marketing stencil, I added some UTEE with emboss-it dabber and I melted it with my heat gun.
After it cooled I made a few doodles with black Molotow marker on my background.
Finally I made my butterfly with basic butterfly dies of Sizzix that I colorized with two shades of blue and black. I hand lettered my text with Molotow marker and voilà:
Hope you’ll get inspired by the beautiful mood board and join the challenge as well on Scrap around the world.
