Mixed Media Moods – September

At home with Bee Sew Whimsical

Hi Craftin’ Friends… September Mixed Media Moods Challenge has bought the most gorgeous colour palette.  Seriously friends… this challenge you’ve got to do.  Be it mixed media, sewing, scrapping or any other craft you can imagine – JUST DO IT

So September for me is the start of Spring.  It’s fresh, it’s sunshiny, it’s green and earthy with the beginnings of all things new. This colour palette was rich in earthy green and brown autumn tones (opps, not Spring… LOL!!), and VINTAGE SCRUMPTIOUSNESS !!  I can go Vintage… all cool…

» DeeDee Catron and  » Jennifer Engle – they always inspire my artsy soul, with their mood board creations. Not only are they seriously talented… they know how to put a creative mood board together that will spark your imagination. Don’t forget to buzz over and see what they both created. That gorgeous mood board below will take you there…

Back to the mood board.  Isn’t this the most GORGEOUS mood board… so I spent the day with a limited number of items from my stash – I wanted to spend less time thinking and more time play, play, PLAYING!!

Mixed Media Mood Challenge – September by Jenn Engle and DeeDee Catron

The mood board was filled with all things vintage – papers, doileys, rusted keys and OMGooshness – a vintage typewriter. The colours earthy greens, clotted creams and rusted browns…  ARE YOU INSPIRED?  I AM!!


SO WHAT DID I CREATE?

NOTED: – It’s an altered composition book.  The Front and Back covers are completed but the inside is still a WIP.  I really loved the vintage typewriter – I had a journal note that I fussy cut around, some cuts down the side and a little curling to make it look like the paper is actually being typed on – what can I say… I love dimension…

I’m in the mood to create, so I just might make another book and actually record it to my YT channel… with a different colour palette. I have my video set up now to shake of the nervousness and record something fun!

  1. This is a sweet journal. I just love all the different papers. And the inside is just waiting for some incredible journaling! I just love how you made that little paper in the typewriter. I have 2 vintage typewriters, and I use them for vintage text in projects. Great job! Aloha!
