~Dream Big~
Dusty Attic DT project - January 2017

It is once again a brand New Year...New dreams and hopes, new expectations. May you all have a most wonderful and productive New Year, and may all your problems be small, or at least easily solved. 

This month I share this page with you, created as my post for  The Dusty Attic, the papers and inks I used are from 13@rts.

I coloured the white 13@rts flowers with the Yellow Amber and Woodbine Chalk Mists. Also tucked some Crystal squares between the flowers. Did some spatters with watered down Gesso.

I used three different Page Pebbles that were lightly gesso'd with watered down gesso and inked with Watercan Archival Ink.

I absolutely love the new Crazy Stitching chippies, such amazing detail. I embossed them with Lindy's Stampgang, Midnight Gold. The Fancy Trim #1 was gesso'd and painted with 13@rts Woodbine Chalk Mist.

I used the following to get this awesome texture. First a piece of lace that was gifted by my dear friend Ingrid Gooyer from the Netherlands...Some Light Grey Fine Grained Grit from 13@arts. Embossing powder from Lindy's Stampgang, Byzantine Bronze and Cosmic Pink Blu. I also stamped and masked with 13@arts stamps and stencils...

I gesso'd the Notebook Edge Border and randomly embossed it with Lindy's Byzantine Bronze. Then painted some of the Woodbine Chalk and Yellow Amber Chalk Mist onto it.

From the Dusty Attic shop I have used the following chippies...

Proudly sharing my 2017 badge for the first time...

Something to ponder on, may we remember to live this way...Thank you for taking the time to visit...

A good character is the best tombstone. 
Those who loved you
 and were helped by you 
will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. 
Carve your name on hearts, 
not on marble.

~Love you to the Moon and Back~
Dusty Attic-2016 DT page

And I am back again with another DT page for The Dusty Attic...The last one for the year of 2016...!!!

For this page I used the following papers from the Blue Fern Tranquillity Collection...Calm, Contentment and Jubilation. 

I treated the Square Note Edge Frame and Mini Scrolls as follows...I painted them with Dusty Colours paint, Faded Denim and Forrest. I then randomly embossed with some clear UTEE and misted with Lindy's Stampgang Moonshadow Mist, Buccaneer Bay Blue. Aren't those puddles of Blue just awesome looking on the chipboards?

I stencilled some Crackle Varnish through the Mandala Stencil and added a little glitter on top. Also added some stitching, something I haven't done for a long time...

The ATC frame and Wildflower sprigs were painted using Prima Art Alchemy Opal Magic Green-Gold. I did not paint but rather dabbed the paint on for some extra texture. On the frame I also embossed with some UTEE. Then sprayed on some LSG Ethereal Emerald Moonshadow Mist.

I used phrases from the Wordplay #4 pack as my title...they were plainly coloured with Tim Holtz Distress Crayon-Frayed Burlap. The flowers on this page are also Dusty Attic in Bloom flowers, Cornsilk and Grassy Knoll.

I am adding the links of the products as available in the Dusty Attic on-line Store... 

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch,
 a smile, 
a kind word,
 a listening ear,
 an honest compliment, 
or the smallest act of caring, 
all of which have the potential 
to turn a life around.

~Say Cheese~
Dusty Attic-November 2016 DT Page

Saying Hello again to all my Blogland friends...Hoping you are all have a wonderful week this far. I am sharing my Design Team page for Dusty Attic with you. This is me and my one daughter's cat, Kiara...and nope, she was not to impressed with this photo session at all...! 

I used Doodads #3 as main chippies. They were embossed with Golden Sand Embossing Powder from Stampendeous...Just love the effect of this Embossing powder on the chipboard. So easy to get amazing detail without going to too much trouble! I also did dry Heat Embossing with Aged Rose Embossing powder, also from Stampendeous on the background and in the valleys of the Dusty Attic Corrugated Cardstock

I used papers from Penelope Dee, Tea Time Range designed by Glenda Viljoen. I used Chamomile Tea, Hydrangea and Rose And Ginger. To match the shabby and distressed look of the papers, I stencilled with Finnabair's white crackle paste. Don't you just love the gold speckles from the Aged Rose embossing powder?

Keeping with the Shabby Chic look I added some Tulle, Builders Tape and coloured gauze to the page, the gauze was coloured with a spray from my Lindy's Starbusrt Mist: Bodacious Blush. Also added Art Stones from Finn and US Artquest Prills: Baby it's Cold Outside and Plum Crazy.

I coloured the Nameplate #5 with Lindy's Bodacious Blush after gesso'ing and inked the edges with Watering Can Archival Ink. The mini Tag was just inked a little with Victorian Velvet Distress ink and Watering Can.

From the Dusty Attic Store...

The problem with cats
 is that they get the exact same look 
on their face
 whether they see a moth 
or an axe-murderer.
