Renea's stunning layout for our March Inspiration Board

Today we have a GORGEOUS layout to share with you.  Renea was having a little fun with both our March SOE kit, Anna's Daydream, AND our March Inspiration Board, which was designed by Anna Rogalska (and yes, the kit is named after Anna, as well!).


Renea says: 
This kit is the perfect mix of Shabby meets girlie-grunge and I paired it with the following Mood Board created by the super talented Anna for us to play along with!!

If you would like to join us and play along with our mood board as well as many other fun challenges and contests, please visit us here on Facebook:



I used the March Kit, the mood board and a photo of one of the most inspirational ballerinas of our time, Misty Copeland~an author, entertainer, and American Ballet Dancer for the American Ballet Theatre, one of the three leading classical Ballet companies in the United States.
I started out with layers of the distressed and inked papers that pulls the colors from the frame photo, and the grunginess from the paint brush photo in the mood board,  sewing, punching and and layering them in.



Behind my photo is a layer of punched paper and a layer of lace, that reflects that romantic style of  Jane Austin, the author of the quote in the Mood Board. 




The top corner is some paper that I tore out, machine sewed and then added a Tim Holtz Metal Book Frame and one of the quote pieces from the kit  "Never Give Up", and a Prima Fifth Avenue Flower and small Prima flower from this month's floral add on



I used the little hearts from the kit, then cut out larger hearts from the kit paper, inked and distressed them and layered them together, pulling the heart shape from the Mood Board Photo. 


At the bottom corner of my photo, I made a floral piece using the Prima Avalon flower from the main kit, another Prima Fifth Avenue Flower, and a past kit flower and stash feathers.

The Peaches & Cream Butterflies are my Reneabouquets butterflies.


I took the little resin feathers from this month's Elements Add On and added hand dyed seam binding and some lace pieces that match the Avalon flower, and then cut one of the tags with quotes on it from the Elements Add On into pieces, distressed and inked the edges and added them on in between the "falling" feathers
 
Thank you for stopping by today, and I hope you will come play along with our March Inspiration Board Challenge!
