September Moodboard "Life Journey" by Aleksandra Mihelič

Hi dear friends of  Mixed Media & Art blog!
I'm so so happy and excited to be here with you, for the first time as DT member. I'm very honoured to have been given this chance. I love this blog and I'm always inspired and pushed over my creative and imagination boundaries with their fabulous Moodboards. This month's Moodboard was no exception. From the first minute I saw it, I knew what I'll be making. I've had this idea about a Sundial - a sun clock in my mind for some time now, but without the final vision how to make it happen. With this moodboard it all became clear.

I've altered a Graphic 45 mixed media box and attached it to a big piece of puzzle, that my kids weren't playing with anymore. I also added few more smaller puzzles on my box, to give it more interest and texture. I created a Sundial on top with chipboards.

After I glued down the puzzle pieces on my box, I covered it with two coats of white gesso. After that I added some sand texture paste on some parts of the box. When dry, I dry-brushed it just lightly with a bit of a black gesso. Then I colored it with brown and gold sprays. On top I added a bit of a Finnabair Opal Magic color for more gold effect. 

The base big puzzle piece was colored only in gold with Finnabair gold sparke paint on top. 

After that I built the upper part with a sundial from chipboard pieces. I dry brushed it with white gesso on some parts, added some gold glass glitter and some white glitter and few splashes of white paint.

I hope you liked my inspiration for this month's Moodboard and I hope it maybe awakens some ideas in your creative mind, so I'll be able to admire your gorgeous creations on our monthly challenge board. 

I wish you lovely week ahead and see you soon!
