Aug 2015 Dusty Attic DT project

Hello blogland friends...

Today I am sharing my Design Team project for Dusty Attic. I played with Dusty Rust Powder a wile ago on several chipboard pieces and found them the perfect match to this studio photo of my oldest daughter Chantelle...

Having used the powder before and not being all together satisfied with the result, I tried a different approach. I first gesso'd my chipboard. Instead of using the Rusting Powder on a dry surface, I randomly dabbed the pieces with my Ranger clear embossing glue and then added the powder. I left it to dry and only then spritzed it with the vinegar. I found it gave me a better coverage...The colouring was done with several colours of Alcohol inks, mainly blues and red/rust colours. The look and especially feel of the rusted chipboard is just amazing!!!

These beautiful newly released foliage leaves and the String Frame are painted with a mix of Dusty Paints Cranberry and Hot Chocolate. I also sprinkled and heat set some UTEE on them and gave them a spritz of Biscoti Perfect Pearl Mist for some shine.

On this photo you can really see the amazing effect of the Rusting Powder...yummylisious for sure!

I cut the small Elegant Flourish in half and positioned it at the top and bottom of my page. The flowers and leaves are all from Petaloo. I did some stamping and stencil work on the background and gave a final touch of Bling by flicking some watered down glue onto the paper and dusted it with charcoal Art Sugar.

Remember to visit the Dusty Attic shop for even more gorgeous chipboard pieces...

These are the products that I have used on this page...


The will to win,
 the desire to succeed,
 the urge to reach your full potential...
 these are the keys
 that will unlock the door to personal excellence.


Thank you for the visit today...Wishing you all a Happy Scrappy week...
