Wings - Sanderijn de Bruin (Challenge inspiration)


 Hi everybody!



It's Sanderijn here, with my newest layout, based on the amazingly inspiring moodboard for this month's challenge.





I have created a page which has a deeper meaning. It's about the open door in the picture. It's symbolic for the oppertunity to see, in every situation, the ability to be free, to follow a new path, reach for the stars, and spread your wings...





I used a lot of birds in the layout, to make it symbolic for 'flying through the open door'.



So I hope everybody remembers, they always have a choice in life, to open a new door, a new path, and to search for their own (inner) freedom...



The background is created with a layer of clear gesso, several layers of different stencil patterns,  added with gesso. I splattered some golden watercolour paints too.



I build up my page with cheese cloth, lace, tags, art stones, chipboard pieces, stamped flowers, 3D flowers and word stickers.

Altered Lantern - Joanne Bain - Off the Page


Hi everyone!

Joanne here with you today sharing my little altered lantern. I purchased the small tealight lantern from Bunnings and then added quiet a few Dusty chippy pieces to alter it.

'Altered Lantern'



To colour the lantern I have used Finnabair Rust Paste and the newer Patina Paste set. I so love the texture and detail these pastes give, they blend together beautifully.


To create the main band of the lantern I used the Dusty Ivy Flourish over the top of  the Scroll Border #4. To enable the chippy to be able to bend around the lantern I soaked for a couple of seconds in water until it was slightly wet not thoroughly soaked, by doing this it will bend without breaking.


The front cluster has been made up from hearts cut from Medallions #1, Doodads #5, Industrial Stars, pieces cut from Lace Border #3 and Snowflakes.


The top piece for the lantern was created by cutting one of the lace pieces off of the Lace Border piece. I then attach and Industrial Star and title piece from the Cherish Yesterday word set.



Along with the chipboard I also added some metal pieces and metal buttons. To add extra interest I added a little bling to the chains and also added a very light dry brush Finnabair Vintage Silk wax.

Dream Imagine Believe - Farrel Tailor (Challenge Inspiration)


Hello Again!! Today I am sharing with you a canvas board I created using the Dusty Attic August Mood Board which is on their blog as inspiration.
Mood Board
It's always a challenge for me to create something that isn't boy related due to having 3 boys so I found this a challenge but loved every moment of it. I wanted to create a canvas focusing on the dream catcher image and the colour tones....and this is what I came up with.

There are so many layers to this canvas..I just love it!! And I got to use some molds a very dear friend of mine made for me. I loved how the crackle varnish created more texture to the dream catcher.
Here are some close ups.

Sisterly Love - Nicole Doiron



Hello everyone! It's Nicole here,
and I am back today to share another DT project featuring 
lots of Dusty Attic chippies, flowers, paints and more!




Since I didn't use the August mood board sketch as inspiration for my mixed media canvas shared with you earlier this month, I decided to use it for this layout.  As on the sketch, I went with 2 small prints for my pictures framed with diagonal flourishes and lots of flowers.






Definitely some of my favorite newly released pieces are the Lacey Trim and the Quoted Sentiments that now come in black.  These black chipboard pieces are awesome as you can use them as is - no need to color them - and they pop out of any project.






On the Lacey Trim above and the Layered Flourishes seen below, I used a combination of Oceania and Faded Denim acrylic paints with some dabs of white. I then added a bit of Clear Gloss Varnish to give them a little shine. The Leaves were covered with Crushed Olive.




In my flower clusters, you see Dusty In Bloom Blue Bonnet and Bridal Veil flowers
along with some other pieces from my own stash.  I love the blue colour palette!





On my background, I dabbed some Crushed Olive paint and then used
 modeling paste with the Sparkle stencil to add texture and design.  
After coloring the Monarch Butterflies with a black Copic marker, I dabbed them 
with white paint and then added rust colored ink for a dual color effect.





These beautiful little girls are my friends' daughters!





Now let's take a closer look at all the Dusty Attic products used!

Happy - Cathy Cafun

Hi Everyone,

Cathy here sharing my project for this month using a few gorgeous Dusty Attic Chipboard and Stencil Designs.

Happy

I recently purchased a few new colours to add to my stash of metallic pastes, which I love to use to alter my chipboard pieces and was inspired by the them to create my layout.  They are very easy to apply and give the most beautiful shimmery finish.


To create my background I used the Damask #2 Stencil Design with Decoart Champagne Metallic Lustre.



For some texture and depth I watered down a bit of Dusty in Colour Clear Gloss Varnish, which I randomly flicked around my stenciling.  I then sprinkled over the gloss varnish with a mix of copper glitter glass and microbeads and removed the excess.

The Clockworks SmallHappy and Mini Tabs #3 chipboard pieces were coated with Champagne Metallic Lustre and the Doily #10 and Foliage #7 were coated with Rose Gold Metallic Lustre.  To add more shimmer and depth, I randomly applied Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes in Egyptian Gold which is a mix of copper, silver, gold and a touch of burgundy flakes... simply divine!!!



The Mini Tabs #3 is one of the new release chipboard designs.  Pop in to the Store to see all of our beautiful new designs.
