<<<<<<<<>>>>>>>>

Here is my interpretation of the mood board:


I got inspired by the beautiful blue butterfly in the mood board which I used as a background for my photo. 
I also used the colours of the mood board as inspiration for this layout.




I used the Blue Fern Studios Graduated Circles as a layer behind the photo too.



I added lots of stamping and drippings to create the background along with some drywall mesh tape.
