Everyday Life - Joanne Bain - Mood Board Inspiration

Hello and Happy Weekend to everyone
I hope you are getting to create!
Why not give this months Mood Board Challenge a go?
Joanne Bain is up today for some inspiration


Sharing my latest creation created for the October Dusty Attic Mood Board Challenge. The challenge  has an amazing prize of a $100 Dusty Attic Gift Voucher for the winner and to enter you simply need to use the Mood Board for Inspiration, you can interpret it anyway you like. The only requirement is that Dusty Attic chipboard is used in your creation. Once completed simply add your link to the right side bar of the Dusty Attic blog.

So this is the October Mood Board.

The image and the colours of this mood board are gorgeous!

'Everyday Life'

I was inspired by the colours and by the round view you get when looking through the wave.

This time I haven't really done a lot to the chipboard except paint it to my colour choice. I am really loving the vibrant colours of this page.

The title Everyday Life really directed me to the idea behind the design of this page. I wanted it to look like a clock or compass face and the new pendant chippies allowed me to do this.

Garden - Patrica Basson

Hello dear Blogfriends...

Spring has made it to our front door and it has the promise of being a very warm and dry summer season this year. I have many plants that have either not flowered at all, or flowered at the wrong time...One of them being my Azaleas...They should have flowered early August, but are only starting to flower now. I used BoBunny Papers from the Gabrielle Collection.

I painted my chipboard with paints from the Dusty in Colour collection. As you can see, I did some gradual shading using Mountain Meadow and Oceania on the foliage and Dusty Pink and Sugar Plum on the frame. I also embossed using Lindy's Stampgang Embossing Powders Desert Moon Turquoise, Tilt-O-Wheel-Teal, Pop Rock Purple and Raspberry Lemonade. 
The leaves from Foliage #3 tucked in between the flowers were painted with Navajo White and embossed with Deserts Moon Turquoise...

I recently bought some Mega gilding flakes and enjoy using them whenever I can, as you can see here on the stamped images on the paper!

The following photos will show you the paintwork on the frame...

I layered a piece of the Sweet Pea frame set to add a little interest...

These are the items used on the page...all of which are found in the Dusty Attic shop.

The glory of gardening,
 hands in the dirt,
 head in the sun,
 heart with nature.
 To nurture a garden
 is to feed not just on the body,
 but the soul.

Alfred Austin

Thank you for your visit...wishing bright and glorious days to you all...

Together - Helena Johannson

It's October and fall is on it's way. A perfect time to scrap those Spring and Summer photos! Today I have a layout to share with a pic of my son and his youngest cousin, playing football together. I love watching these two play, there's 8 years between them, but they have so much fun!

I have once again scrapped with Lemoncraft papers - such beautiful, romantic papers, and they suit Dusty Attic chipboard so well!

These are the Dusty Attic products I used for this page:

I  adore the new Dusty Attic stencils and Texture Paste! Fantastic paste, so easy to work with and dries quickly! Anyway, I started my page with the Fan Stencil and some Texture Paste. After it had dried, I misted lightly with a pink mist.

Then I painted the Lacey Nameplate, two pieces of the Ornamental Trim Set and the smallest of the String of Hearts Frame, with white gesso. I then layered these pieces, as you can see in the photo below:

I also added a couple of resin pieces, to get even more dimension. Then I just added flowers and cut-out clocks. Finally, the title "Together", from Word Pack #10, was painted white and glued into place.

Here are some close-ups for you:

Remember when you purchase $75.00 or more from the retail store you will receive FREE world wide shipping

Sieze the Day - Jen Burns

I have used Bo Bunny Star Crossed papers which I fell in love with the second I saw them !! The colours, the feathers, the embellishment pack - Love Love Love and all so perfect for this photo shoot that we did in the "fairy mines" as Ky and Cadence call them
(Its actually a pine plantation with a footpath around it), I wish you could see this in "real life" as it is very very layered and quite high!

Black Soot DA 0925
I started with the diamond stencil background using  black crackle paint, then I have painted a lot of the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces with the Black Soot paint as well. 

The hexagons I have used I have "popped" out of the Honeycomb Large and small panel pieces and covered them with the Bo Bunny papers
(small DA0740 Large DA0738)

Honeycomb DA0740 and DA0738
I have added red twine around the love heart arrows and around the focal circle made of the gold wire around the photograph, I made my own circle to use as a dream catcher type symbol with white embroidery thread and then wrapped fine gold thread across it, the tiny pegs I have painted gold along with the little diamonds you see there on the Mini Balloons (they are popped out of the trellis piece of chippy)
Heart Arrows #2 DA1026

Mini Trellis DA 1033  

I love the view finders and have used both the large and mini size on this layout with Navaho white paint then used crackle gloss and rubbed it over the Dusty Attic Gold paint.The small view finder I just coloured with brown ink and then rubbed it back to make it rustic.
Mini View Finders DA1080 - Large View Finders DA 1081

The feathers that came in the ephemera pack I have dipped with gold glitter and bent them around to add dimension to them. The chipboard feathers I have left raw and but rubbed some gold paint over the top to match.

How gorgeous are the embellishments that match the papers? I love these stamps and they fit the Dusty Attic chippy perfectly   

Postage Stamps DA0551

Arrow Border #1 DA1198

I have added arrows to the skewers at the top and wrapped with the same gold thread, the Mini Alphabet letters fit perfect on the card

Mini Alphabet Uppercase DA 0861

I had so much fun making this layout and I love it to bits (One of My favorites by far)

Thanks for popping in today
