~~~ Amazing ~~~
June 2019 Dusty Attic Moodboard

Yes, I am posting my Dusty Attic June project in July!!! I had this page finished - with a little difficulties health-wise - But just never got to doing the blogging and posting last month... I loved creating this page for the Moodboard and am very Happy with the outcome. I am following a stunning Hand-balance Artist on Facebook , Stefanie Millinger, and when she posted this specific photo last month I knew it was a perfect fit for the moodboard. Thankfully I was granted permission to use it by Stefanie! Do yourself a favor and follow the links to her Face book and Instagram pages, she really is amazing. 

I opted to give the page an Industrial look for I think she uses and maintains her body and mind as a well oiled machine and the industrial look suited her personality.

I used papers from 13arts, At Dusk and Postcards from the Blue Magnolia Collection.

On the background I used a Prima stencil with 13arts Modeling paste colored with Orange Rainbow Color and Deco Art Acrylic Pain. I also used Amber Colour Glow with water that settled in the embossed stenciling to give a wonderful glow. Also used Rock Candy Crackle paste and also added Orange Rainbow Color on it. The edges of the papers where distressed with a sanding block and painted with Yellow Amber Ink. 

I painted all the Chipboard pieces with Orange paint and added Mermaid Tail, Vivid Yellow and Red Caffeine Paints to created a weathered look on the chipboard. I also added some Brads that I distressed with my Tim Holtz distressing hammer. 

I embossed the inside of the Nautical Frame with an Embossing folder. Also added the brads and all the different paints. In the corners I concentrated with more Red Caffeine paint and Patina Bronze mist from 13arts. 

I am still a little stingy with my Mitform Casting embellishments but did use a few pieces on this page!

That's it then friends...hope you enjoyed this page and I'll be back soon with more for this month...

From the Dusty Attic online Shop I used the following...

~~Everlasting Friendship~~
Art Journal Page for 13arts June 2019

Hello Dear Arty friends...

Today I am sharing a Journal Spread with you. Most of the times I don't really know what I want to create, I just start to play with papers and mediums and usually inspiration and ideas follow.  Here I started with the Paper from Aria Story, Street Rhythm...I loved the Yellow distressed look of it. I used the Mechanical Stencil and black ink pad to add interest to the edges of the paper. Then I used the Vintage Words stencil with Modeling paste. I thickened the  modeling paste with Magic Powder and colored it with Color Glow Citrine and Emerald.

I used Rusty Bronze Rust Effect powder with the new Reagent to color the Gauze. I created a layered look with several paper strips and some string. Also used Old Gold paint and Americano Vivid Vintage paint for highlights and splatters.

The title was embossed with black embossing powder. Also added some black netting that I distress with my heat tool and a few rusted elements. In the end this page is a dedication to all our pets that we love and cherish....

Thank you for visiting my page...You are welcome to visit the 13arts store where you will find all the products I used and many more....

~~~ Everyday you make new Memories ~~~
May 2019, 13arts Blog Project

Hello Friends....

For today's 13arts project I started with a piece of resist canvas that I colored with Sky Blue and Turquoise Rainbow Duo colors. I just played and enjoyed watching the  color pigments act with the adding of more water and pushing it around with a paintbrush. 
I then decided to use the piece of canvas on this project. I used the A4 Vintage Summer Leaves paper as background and layered several others under the image from the Hope you are well paper sheet. I used a Dusty Attic Frame that I firstly painted with Americano Vivid Vintage Paint, randomly embossed with Stampendeous Aged Teal Embossing Enamel and aged further with Rusty Bronze Rust effect Powder activating the Rust with new 13@rts Rust Reagent...This product will only be available with the next release but believe me it is going to be a winner!!!! I got awesome rust effects without the smell of the usual vinegar one has to use!

I used Black and Light Gold Mika Flakes and Burgundy Dried Acorn seeds for decorations. My title sticker comes from the Aqua Flora Sticker sheet. The skeleton leaves are from my own stash but I linked to similar leaves in the 13arts shop.

Thank you for your visit...Be creative and just have Fun! Till next time

~~~ Smile, Laugh Tags ~~~
May 2019 Dusty Attic Design Team Project

Hi and Hello again Blog friends....

Today I share two Tags created for Dusty Attic this month. I really love making Tags for it is the perfect size to play around with all kinds of techniques and products. It often happens that I use something that worked on a Tag later on a Page.

I started by using 13 Arts A4 Paper from the Amour collection, not that much of it was visible after all the media, but I know it was there....Lol...

I used the Metal Plate Stencil on the backgound with 13Arts Modeling paste colored with  Americano Vivid Vintage paint. I needed some texture for the inks to puddle in and the stenciling gave me the perfect texture. I used Yellow Amber Ink and Pink Rainbow Color Powder. The edges were inked with some Black Splash Ink. 

This Decorative Frame just stays a firm favorite of mine! Here I layered the smaller one on the large one, love the design effect one achieves by layering the different Chipboard designs! After a light Gesso coat, I colored it with Vivid Green and Olive Green Paints. I finished it of with some Old Silver Glitter Splash ink.

The Vine Frame was treated the same as the Decorative Frame. I  kept the negative inside of the Lacey Heart Frame...Loved the Distressed look it gave to the very delicate frame....I treated the frame with Scarlet Ink and Crystal Bordeaux Glitter Splash Ink. 
A crochet Doily, some Black Glitter, a little wax and sisal adds the final touches to my Tags.

I hope you enjoyed this project...To view the products I used , please follow the link to the well stocked Dusty Attic On-line store....

Let my soul smile through my heart
 and my heart smile through my eyes,
 that I may scatter rich smiles
 in sad hearts.

April 2019 - 13arts Design Team Project

Hello to all my 13arts Friends....

Hope to find you all well. Here in South Africa Autumn is arriving bringing cooler weather and beautiful Autumn colors.
Today I share a photo of my youngest Daughter Michelle with you taken on her Matric Farewell Dance.

I used two sheets of the Blue Magnolia Paper collection: Bonjour. I tore the top one and flipped it, then glued them together. I applied Clear Gesso over them. I stamped with the Together Stamp and used the 16 pan Watercolor Set to paint  the flowers with Yellow, Amber, Olive Green and Turquoise colours. 
I used several pieces of papers left over from previous projects as layers behind my photo. Also fussy cut some elements from the Flowery Day sheet to add as interest. For texture I used Dried Roots and Black Natural Mica Flakes and Silver Microspheres. 
I hope you enjoy these close ups...

From the 13arts on-line store you can find all the products I used and much more.

Thank you and hope you enjoyed my project...
