Rajni Chawla again on the Dusty Attic Board with another new inspiration for February month. Hope you all are enjoying playing along the challenge each month. February month was pretty hectic month for me and I was totally blank for my second inspiration. I was not able to think what exactly to make. I m not too much into making lauout pieces but always want to make something thats useful and inspirational. I started up making art journal cover but ended up with a decoration piece....this generally happens with me most of the time. Hope able to inspire u again with my new creation.
IT'S NOT ENOUGH TO HAVE FEATHERS....YOU MUST DARE TO FLY !!
What a beautifull quote came into my mind when I saw Dusty Attic Indian Arrow chipboard. I was attracted to the beautiful carved feathers. Nature has blessed the human with unimagined power: the will to conquer the universe, the desire to know, and the curiosity of the unknown. The word impossible does not match with human nature. we have enough courage to face even our greatest fear....but only if we
Here is the February mood board.
I worked with shades of blues n browns and mixed them with tones of greens to create something that can inspire me always and can match the above quote.
Feathers ,Flowers....more Flowers....and Birds !!
The blues depict the shades of sky and deep ocean, Shades of greens depict the green nature and browns depict our mother Earth.
I started a coat of gesso, then textures using DA Texture paste....lots of mixing and building layers with leftover chipboard negatives. Yes....you heard it right. I have built most of all the layers using my leftover negative pieces of chipboard that I used in my prior projects.
Look at those small square and oval pieces....Do they look like they were waste pieces??
Once textured,layered and colored they are no more waste for me.
I try to take out maximum of what I have in my stash. Little hand fisted person I am.
I took Dusty Attic Indian Arrow charm as my main focal image for the concept. These are painted with Dusty in color, Gingernut, Dusty in Color Oceania, Dusty in color Crushed Olive and when dried painted with Dusty in color Clear Crackle medium. Little highlighting with Dusty in color Navajo White was enough to add more beauty on it.
Few more shades of Dusty in Color are Dusty in color Cashmere, Dusty in color Raisin, Dusty in color Jungle Green, Dusty in Color Capri and Dusty in color Mountains in Medow.
Can you see the negative of Dusty Attic Geometric Corners hiding behind Dusty in blooms and metal flowers.
The chipboard piece on the edge again is the negarive of Dusty Attic Geometric Borders.
And here is my handwritten message....yes, my son preferred and asked me to put hand written message on my project. I know my writing is not that good but not very bad too.
I used Black Archival 0.3 pen to write the message.
Here is the complete list of all the Dusty Attic products I have used together. I have already linked all the products on the Dusty Attic website.
