April 2018 - Canvas
Dusty Attic Moodboard

Good Morning Blog friends...

With still a few days to go, this is my take on the Bright and fun mood-board from Dusty Attic....

Apart from the colours, I also took inspiration from the yellow cabinet door and wall in the bottom photo. I used Door #3 and Brick Window. After gluing the bricks onto the background piece, I added some Pumice Stone Effect paste after which I pained it all with Yellow and Blue Acrylic Paints using the Petroleum Jelly technique to achieve the distressed and weathered look. Also added a little bit of stamping and Raw Sienna paint. To finish I dry brushed a little Turquoise Satin Opal Magic Wax onto the raised areas.

On the background of the canvas I did some image transfers...I wanted to create a Garden effect, once you go through the door, one can escape to a little tranquillity!

The trellis part of the Door was embossed with Aged Black Embossing Enamel from Stampendous...There is also a little Rust Paste added.

The Lamppost was also coloured with Rust Pastes. The inside of the lamp is painted with a little red ink and crackle varnish was added. The Pot and Wild flowers were also painted with various green and yellow paints with some crackle and clear gloss varnish added. 

On the bottom I used the Dusty Attic Stencil, Webbing #2 with Graphite Texture Paste to create a stone effect. All the yellow colouring was done with 13 Arts paints Yellow Amber and Yellow Lemon and Spiced Marmelade Distress Oxide Inks.

These are the products that I have used from the Dusty Attic Webside...

April 2018 Dusty Attic DT Project

Today I am sharing my April 2018 Blogpost project for Dusty Attic. Once again I used a photo of my youngest daughter on her Matric Farewell Dance. I used papers from Authentique...Cherish, Smitten and Tidings.

I simply coloured my Chipboards, with Distress Oxides, Aged Mahogany and Forest Moss.  

The title and the Birdhouses where gesso'd and embossed with Lindy's Embossing Powders, Oakleaf Olive and Peacock Angel Wings.

I coloured the Dusty Bling flourish with a little Green Rust Effect Paste from Finnabair. Isn't it great that one can change the appearance of any bling with just a little product to make it look all different?

On the raw film strip chipboard I rubbed a little Nuvo Mother of Pearl Embellishment Mousse...

From our awesome Dusty Attic wholesaler Shop you can find these and many more amazing products...

Thank you for taking the time to visit...Greetings and well wishes

All emotions 
are pure which 
gather you and lift you up; 
that emotion is impure
 which seizes only one side of your being 
and so distorts you.

2018 March Dusty Attic Moodboard

Hello Friends....
This month the Dusty Attic Moodboard inspiration is filled with soft pastel colours and blooms...I used all the colours, Pinks, Blues and Yellows and also an abundance of blooms on my page. I used papers from 49&Market,  Botanical Press from the Vintage Artistry Range. The flowers are from Little Birdies. I had another photo and chipboard in mind, but when I came upon this photo of my eldest daughter from early 1987, I had to use it on this page.

I used two paper sheets, the top one was torn at the ends, my idea was to create a floral arrangement spilling from the bottom to the top layer...Three packets of flowers gave my a beautiful arrangement. 

I gesso'd the Mystic Frame #2 and Paisly #3  and embossed them with the following Lindy Stampgang Embossing Powders, Bonjour Butter, Raspberry Lemonade and Tilt-a-Wheel Teal.

I used the Dusty Attic Rose Stencil  with Cracked Pistachio, Fossilized Amber and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks to create some interest in the background. A little bit of hand stitching and my page was done ...  

There is still enough time to get your Moodboard inspired creation added, There are two $50 Prizes up for grabs! Have a look at what is to offer in the Dusty Attic Shop...
