Our challenge this month is a photo challenge, and here is our graphic for this month:
Well, as you can see, my contribution is a rather loose interpretation, but hey ho, I tried......
But before I tell you more, our wonderful sponsor this month is no other than Indigo Blue
I used the following two stamp sets for my project: Victorian Garden and Country House, and created a dreamy page for my nature journal.
I created my background with a mix of Oxide and normal Distress Inks and then slowly built up layers of stamping using the images from the stamp sets, stamping again with both Oxide and Distress Inks. The darkest layer in the foreground was stamped with a Big Brush Pen. The moon was done with the help of a mask.
Lots of spritzing and flicking to make the inks react with one another and then I added a few white high lights with a white pen.
The sentiment is part of the Victorian Garden set, sorry the photo turned out a bit blurry...
Well that's it for today, for further details on the challenge please head over to Mixed Media Monthly and of course we all hope you will play along with our challenge and if you do, don't forget to add our graphic to your post to qualify for our prize!
Thanks for your visit today, and have a happy, healthy and creative month!

I love how atmospheric this is Astrid. =)
A gorgeous piece Astrid, the colour blends look awesome and it looks quite magical.
Definitely dreamy - the moonlit glow is so beautiful, and I love the white accents bringing the meadow grass to life. Gorgeous!
Dreamy describes this perfectly! Truly a lovely piece of artwork, Astrid! Love the way the garden gate fades into the background as if in a dream and the bold pop of the grasses. Gorgeous! Hugs!
Very beautiful and I really locve how the colors turned out after all the spritzing, and it can be hard to control some times with these, but you managed to make a masterpiece once again. Very very beautiful page here.
A Subtle and almost ethereal look to your take on the challenge. "I see as through a glass darkly" Gorgeous work.
What an amazing piece, the layers of colour and stamped images are beautiful and give the piece a magical dreamlike quality. I love the quote you added too, it ties with the imagery beautifully 😀. Wishing you a very Happy August! J 😊

Beautiful, I love the moon mist and the feeling of secrets going on behind the iron gate, -a gorgeous make Astrid. Dorthe, xoxo
So beautiful and dreamy! Love the moonlit glow glimmering in the misty sky shining down on the silhouetted grasses , catching the tops of just a chosen few.
I would love to step right in.....
Beautiful card Astrid. I love the faint shape of the window in the background, what a wonderful backdrop for your glorious flowers. Wonderful quote too, a fantastic interpretation of the photo challenge image. hugs :)
A lovely atmospheric piece with the shadow stamping. Love the colour blend.
Beautiful card! Love that faded background! Great stamping skills!
The really bad thing bout coming to view your posts, is I discover all of these products you use and I want them! Argh!!
Love the dreamy feel to this page & how you incorporated the moon. Very cool look that it is somewhat out of focus and looks exactly how it comes out from a photo.
Beautiful tag!! The background is awesome.
Absolutely lovely page! Love it.
Love love the background, what a beautiful effect!
It is so beautiful and so very ethereal too Astrid. The steps you've used and the colours are awesome. I love everything about it, it's stunning and so very inspiring too Karen x
