We have the moody Blues at Moving along with the times this week

Good morning all

We have a lovely new challenge
Moving along with the Times 

this week and our lovely Debs has chosen a mood board for us 

The inspiration is 

Moody Blues

And this is what I came up with

Using the gorgeous balloon basket from LOTV available here

If there were points for using things from this inspiration board I think I'd score pretty high!
(you've got to blow your own trumpet sometimes lol)
As a start its blue and white which is the main theme running through, but looking at the separate elements of the board I also have flowers (including the tulips on the board), stars, lace and ribbon.  But there are so many other elements that you could draw inspiration from on this board - its also very girly, shoes dresses and a manequin are there and even cups and plates.
I loved this Debs - thanks for the great inspiration.

This is what I did...

Image - balloon basket from LOTV
Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils
Sentiment - LOTV - vintage sentiments - occasions
Papers - LOTV Bear necessities and petal fresh paper pads
Flowers and lace - WOC
Ribbon - Carnmeal cottage
Distress ink - TH tea dye
Wooden Rocking horse  coated with TH distress paint - picket fence colour
Metal corners- Michaels recollections -coated in TH distress paint - picket fence
Shaped card - craftwork cards
Spellbinders dies  circle and scalloped circle
large pearl on ribbon - Michaels recollections

We'd love you to see you join us at MAWTT this week
 be all mean and moody blue or pretty and girly with us this week
You'll be very welcome!
