September Inspiration by Marie Johansson

Hi Crafty Souls!
Marie here today with my inspiration piece for the September Moodboard. I was inspiered by the books & the fantastic colors in this moodboard and decided to create a bookmark. For me fall is equal to reading - one of my favorite things is to sit on the front poach under a blanket, with a book and a good cup of coffee in my hands.


I tried to capture the mix of golden, bronze and browns when creating the bookmark. The black chalkstock bookmark from Canvas Corp was perfect as base. I added texture with a AB Studio stencil and modeling paste before blending different shades of Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists.


The leaf turned out lovely! I cut it from a piece of cardboard using a stencil from AB Studio to get the shape. I painted it golden with Tattered Angels High Impact Paints in 3 cotes - if you look closely you can see that I used purple & gold. Layer 1 was gold, 2 purple and 3 gold again.




To get even more texture I added stars with a stencil & modeling paste and then added a stack of Finnabair metals to resemble the compass on in the moodboard. I love the quote on the sentiment strip from 7 Dots Studio!
