Dusty Attic July 2015

Good Morning all...
I got tired of just having a plain old paper calender hanging on my fridge door, got the idea to create myself something beautiful which of course meant I had to grab my Dusty Attic chippies and start playing!
I actually wanted something more grungy and industrial...but alas...Shabby-chic won, again! That only leaves the door open to just create another one, sometime soon... 

I have been wanting to use this mini canvas for some time and thought it would look cute with a Prima resin frame and Angel on it. My all time favourite Dusty chippy, the Swirl Vine was just perfect to frame the canvas.

I made two boards. The top one has a note book and the bottom one has the calender hanging from  it.

I gesso'd the Vine and Fish Net Panel and painted them with Lindy's mist. The Ornate Corner and Mini Word ~Remember~ were both painted with Dusty Colour Paint "Sugar Plum".

I painted the easel with Dusty in Colour Cranberry and Hot Chocolate. On the canvas and boards I used Prima crackle paints and Lindy's mists.

The Dusty fish Net Panel is ideal to use as filler tucked between and behind layers and elements...

This is what my calender looks like now...much better!

 The Chipboard pieces used are....

Cranberry, Hot chocolate, Sugar Plum

All these and so many more are available from the Dusty Attic store.
