The first is from Scrapbook Boutique-
My biggest inspiration was the images of the birds nests. I had the perfect photo that I have been meaning to scrap for ages. I also used the neutral colour palette with a hint of green.
And I am also playing along with the Dusty Attic March Mood Board-
I was inspired by the burlap, the wood grain, and the neutral palette with a hint of pink.
And here is my layout-
I used a Dusty Attic cross stencil with some modelling paste that I coloured with a green gelato.
I have also used some Dusty Attic honeycomb chipboard and circle frame chipboard. I inked all the pieces in brown.
I added some twine under the circle frame chipboard to make a 'nest' shape, along with an assortment of patterned paper strips, doilies and burlap- just like a real birds nest is a mixture of many different fibres and textures.
To keep my 'nest' as a feature in itself, I kept the extra embellishments to a minimum.
I don't get to scrap with pink very often, and this was a chance for me to finally use this little Maggie Holmes resin bird and chipboard bow.
I wrote some hidden journaling on a pull-out tag.
