Welcome to March ...

Welcome to March and our BLUE Moodboard.

This year we are continuing with using a base colour and allowing you to use any variation of that colour you might like to use - light, dark, colour ranges just so long as we can tell it IS the monthly colour.  Of course you MUST use a majority of white on your page - the easiest way to achieve this is to use a white cardstock background but that is up to you.

We are also introducing a simple monthly "Use this" criteria for you to include on your entry.

 You can use black, dark brown, grey or navy as your accent colour for journaling, titles etc and we will allow green if part of a floral pattern.  We'd love to see you take inspiration from this board and incorporate items you see and inspire you - perhaps you like hearts, or checks, see circles you can incorporate into your page, think this moodboard working for a summery or celebration page, or just love to use flowers? Please mention what inspired you on your entry.  

USE THIS criteria -  GESSO (we will allow texture paste or white paint if you don't have gesso).

and now some totally amazing inspiration from our wonderful 2023 team ...
(in no particular order)

Karen Brierley (Australia)
I gesso'd the entire background, including the denim paper. Inspired by the starfish.

Victoria King (Australia)
I was inspired by the blue and white tiles in the moodboard. This gorgeous wall was in Seville. I used gesso on my chipboard and stencil.

Heather Bensley (Australia)

Karen Guy (Australia)
Love all the blues of this Mood board and my inspiration was the sea scape and star fish, I have used Gesso coloured with blue ink stencilled for the waves and another stencil for all the star fish!

Tracey Beer (Australia)
Sponged gesso through a stencil and then sprinkled on some embossing powder and heat set. Also used gesso to prep the chipboard.

Theresa Kamp (Australia)
Inspired by the beach theme water, starfish summer umbrella on the beach.

Amanda Moran (Australia)
White gesso across my navy background with inspiration from the beach vibe of the mood board. 

Jane Howden (Australia)
Inspired by the water and sea theme.
