Dream - Nicole Doiron - December Challenge Inspiration

Hello Dusty FANattics!!!

Nicole here today to share with you a very fun and whimsical layout 
based on the Dusty Attic December mood board challenge!

Here is the lovely December mood board. 

I was so inspired by the board as I absolutely loved its colours and retro feel!

I used only black, white and different hues of teal/aquamarine blue
so I treated all my chipboard with a combination of dark charcoal Copic marker
and the lovely Oceania Dusty in Colour acrylic paint.

I fussy cut the photo of my friend's beautiful daughter and created
with an array of flowers and the gorgeous and intricate Floral Fantasy design.

On my background white cardstock and beautiful 13arts Vintage Moments paper,
I used the River Stones stencil (as seen above) and a mixed media stamp.

To go with the Floral Fantasy chipboard, I also used the Fantasy Flowers
and one of the Paisley #3 border. These pieces are absolute must haves!

I added a few Mini Dragonflies and then lightly misted the embellishments 
with some Daily ART white Vintage Ink Spray.
Speaking of embellishments, the fabulous steampunk badges are from Cuts2luv!

I am very proud of how my page turned out and I find that it complements
the December mood board perfectly with a little 60's flower child look!

These are Treasured memories - Gerry Van Gent - Challenge Inspiration

Hello Crafty Friends!

Gerry's here today sharing with you my take on this month's moodboard.
I totally love the colours of the moodboard. I knew at once which photo 
I want to scrap with these blues and greens. I added bold red touches to 
give some Christmas feeling to my project. 


I didn't doubt for a second to use all of the Flower Stamens chippies. 
Aren't they simply fabulous! I painted them with gesso, then with 
Dusty in Colour Oceania and finally I adhered an epoxy sticker in the centres.

The title was treated first with a layer of gesso. After that I distressed it
with both Dusty in Colour: "Oceania" and "Jungle Green".

The modelling paste was mixed with Dusty in Colour Jungle Green.


Various Sizzix dies


I hope you enjoyed my layout today!
And I can't wait to see what you will create with December's moodboard!

Happy Holidays!

These are Treasured Memories - Farrel Tailor

Hi Everyone, I'm back today to share with you my interpretation of the Dusty Attic December Mood Board. These colours are just amazing and I decided to use these colours as the base of my layout.
mood board

And this is what I came up with...
I started by using 7 Dots Studio Cotton Candy pp - Cloud Watching and white Cardstock as my base. Then mixed some white gesso with Distress Stain Peacock Feathers to create a light blue paint.
Using my fingers I applied the paint onto my paper and used a heat tool to dry. I then applied Nuvo Embellishment Mouse - Pacific Teal using a baby wipe in a swiping motion. I then put a small amount of white gesso onto the baby wipe to help blend the mouse.
I also used the same mousse around the edges of the my photo mount before adhering my photo.
Next I used Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Spray - Shabby Turbine Teal to create depth around the torn edges of my paper using a paint brush and some water.
I then added some texture by using TCW Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste and  Mini Tile Mania stencil.
Now for the chippy!!! I used Dusty Attic Geometric Border, Geometric Corners and cut them into smaller pieces so I could build a layer with them. I then painted them and the String Frames Small with Prima Acrylic Paint Sparks - Raven Black. Once dry I then adhered them onto my layout.
I then used my finger to apply a small amount of Prima Acrylic Sparks Paint - Mermaid Sparkle and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse - Pacific Teal to the geometric pieces.
I also added some stamping using Stampers Anonymous stamps - Ultimate Grunge and Slight Alterations with Ranger Archival Ink - Watering Can.
Then to finish it off I used These Are Treasured Moments chipboard and lightly covered with white gesso using a make up sponge and then blended Nuvo Embellishment Mousse - Pacific Teal around the edges. And adhered a tab from Mini Tabs #7 Black.
Here are the amazing products I used from Dusty Attic




Thanks for dropping by and I hope I have inspired you to join us this month for the December Mood board Challenge xx

BUT a HUGE thankyou to everyone that entered and we look forward to seeing your December Challenge creations, here is Rosalie with her take to inspire you

This mood board  featured one of my favourite colours and couldn't wait to create a layout using colour, texture and lots of Dusty Attic chipboard. 

I started by building up the background with the Dusty Attic Stencil - DA1825 randomly over the page. Once it was dried, I used a postage travel stamp and using embossing ink stamped in and around where the main feature would be. I embossed with a cream embossing powder that added to the rustic layered look. Using a variety of paints I added a random distressed layer and finished with a diamond stamp to compete the grunge look. Using a range of Dusty Attic chipboard, I built up the platform for the photo and added tags and strips of patterned paper to support the overall main feature. Finally I placed chicken wire chipboard in under the main feature to connect with the rest of the page. A final addition of some coffee dyed cotton lace, prills and a title completed the look.

I hope you enjoy and would love to hear your comments.
