Adore - Belinda Spencer


Hello Dusty Attic fans!!

Belinda here today to share my take on the gorgeous May mood board. I really loved the sunshine yellow in the inspiration so used that as my main inspiration with touches of pink.

'Adore'


I glued the fabulous Paisley # 3 chipboard piece onto my layout and then swiped some white gesso over the background and the chipboard using a latex make-up sponge. I added some torn corrugated cardboard and then added more white gesso. Once that was dry, I swiped over some Sunshine Dusty in Colour paint.



Next I stacked on the paper layers using some old patterned papers from my stash in co-ordinating colours inspired by the mood board. There was a cute bird print on one of the patterned papers which inspired the theme of the chipboard. I even found an old journalling card in my stash with 'bird' on it.





I used the Mini Moroccan Lamps upside down as birdcages and painted them white with the gesso.



I also painted the foliage and birds white with the gesso  but once they were dry I inked them with Wild Honey Distress Oxide.

I hope you find some time to enter the mood board challenge this month and have some creative time with your Dusty Attic stash.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.

Cheers
Belinda

Friendship - Tina Ollett

Hello Dusty friends. I am back with you today to share something that I created some time ago for CHA.
And most recently I taught this for a most beautiful group of ladies in New Zealand.

This is titled
"Friendship"


For this project I focused on using the Tattered Garden collection and co-ordinating flowers. I used the reverse of the Tattered Letters patterned paper and dressed this was Ranger Texture Paste through a stencil. I add over this some art stones and ink.

I also added in some Dusty Attic chipboards to help embellish my layout and give it more dimension. These pieces were dressed in Crackle Paste and inked.

And from another view....




Well that is all from me today. I do hope you have like my project and maybe been inspired to do a little something of your own using some fabulously beautiful 49andMarket.
Until next time take care ...

Hello everyone,

Kavitha here today with you to share my mood board inspiration. The moodboard this month is absolutely gorgeous with bright colors and lots of girly elements.
I made a summery layout in yellow tones mostly with little of orange and green.

 
All my chippies are heat embossed except the leaves which is colored with few shades of metallic greens.
I used  a light neutral shade paper for my layout and customized the background with paints and stamping to match the layout

I have used the chicken wire panel cut into pieces in the background.
I have also used two pieces of flower stamens behind the photo.
Finished off the layout with the sentiment "the good life" from Mini captions#11

Here are some close ups.......
For the paper layers I used 2 sheets from the Cottage Life Collection, cut the main sheet, distressed the edges, punched in eyelets I had in my stash then weave in burlap string. I left some of the chipboard raw, just inked the edges with a brown ink pad. For the navy I used distress ink-denim. On the pieces I used clear crackle on, I first primed those pieces with clear gesso, then applied a thick coat of the crackle paint, let dry, then painted them with the Inklings-Giddy about Green & Sheer Bliss. I also inked the edges with the brown ink pad.....
I glued seed beads onto the string frame, chicken wire & film strip, & Mini Prills onto the foliage & grasses....Here are a few more close ups.....










Thank you so much for taking the time to look.....Rachelle
