Creating with a moodboard - Mixed Media Scrapbook Layout

Hello creative pals,
Kripa here with my take on this beautiful moodboard
Inspired by moodboard
Twist- Use two or more pattern papers
I love creating with moodboards because they make me use colours, photographs and embellishments that I wont normally choose. I'm sharing my steps on seeing this moodboard in the hope that you will also find some starting points to create and share it with us here at Lulupu.
1. Photograph - always the first step for me, the layout will be created to highlight the photo. Vintage, retro, sitting on a vespa, no luck. Finally found an old baby picture in a lace dress.
2. Embellishments & textures - Next I visualise the background textures and main embellishments
From the dresses: lace, fabric, silk thread embroidery, pearl, roses, sequins
From the tent top: frame, gold accent, circles
3. Pattern paper - Far, far away from my studio, couldn't find even one pattern paper in the exact colours. Solution: use the closest shades, gesso and alter with paint to the moodboard colours
Here is what I created - an A4 size mixed media layout
What went through your creative mind when you saw this moodboard.
We would love to hear about it and see your project here.
