Collect Beautiful Moments

It's been quite a while since I joined any challenges at Off the Rails but I really loved the July mood board and couldn't resist playing along:

Kaisercraft Stargazer - Astronomy patterned paper (title)
Kaisercraft Stargazer - Moonlight patterned paper
Cre8tiv Stone & Wood patterned paper
Words or Whatever Owl chipboard
Sharpie White paint pen
Resin flowers
Green Tara Mini Flowers - White

How I was inspired:  First, I was drawn to the colour palette, and then the winter theme. I created a layout for my 2014 winter vacation album.  I also included a little chipboard owl, which I touched up with white paint pen:
