Chipboard frame with the September moodboard

Hi everyone !

The beautiful moodboard inspire me this month to decorate a chipboard frame with the deep and luxurious colors of this board :

I kept the petunias in mind to create my flowers and the amber look of the leather jacket. Here is the result :

The base is a blank chipboard frame that I decorated with AA mediums, Colorations spray and stencil… I created the flowers with 7 big flower punches and the Azalea Shine, Grape Shine and DragonFruit Velvet.

I applied Bone Stone Effect medium on the centerpiece, then gel medium over Gothic stencil, and Patience Colorations spray.

The stems were created with air dry clay, and brushed with some Amber Gemstones medium (you can find it in the Rust texture set) and Glass Sorbet.

The top frame and the title were painted with Amber (Rust Texture set).

You can learn how to create the flowers and the general process of this project in my new tutorial here or on the Art Anthology channel :

Thank you for stopping by today, I hope I did inspired you to create more with your AA products !

See you soon…
