November 2017 Dusty Attic DT page

Hello again Blogger friends.
Today I share my page created for November at Dusty Attic. I used the ever so beautiful paper range from Prima - Zella Teal. I fussy cut the flowers from two of the paper sheets and layered them with several of the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces. 

I absolutely love the newly released Iron Garnish designs ... Here I have used Iron Garnish #2. After a coating of Gesso I painted them with Finnabair Metallique Light Patina Paint. I also painted a little Shabby Turbine Teal from Lindy's Stampgang onto them. I heatset it all with my heatgun, fairly close in order to get some bubbles and texture. Finally rubbed Bronze Age Metallique Wax onto the tips.

To match the green of Michelle's dress I coloured some designs from the Spider Chrysanthemum set with Time Travel Teal Macigals and Bells of Ireland Green Linsy's Spray. I cut it into smaller pieces and tucked them between the paper flowers. Tucked between as well are a few pieces of the Black painted Small Lattice. A few Mini Butterflies embossed with Aged Black Embossing Enamel from Stampendous are to be spotted as well. 

With the next three photos I tried to show the layers on the side of the page. 

The following chipboard pieces are available here in the Dusty Attic shop...

Thank you for your visit...

~~You Make my Soul sing~~

Hello again....
On Saturday I made a card seeing as it was National Card day...I used colours that are not usually in my go-to colour palette...Yellow and Purple..I am loving the fresh and rather clean look and feeling that I achieved.To achieve the Heart-shaped cage, I Die-cut 7 Hearts, folded them in half and glued them together. I also used several flowers from Petaloo's Botanical Garden range. The gorgeous Purple Butterfly was a gift from Marta Lapkowska...

On white cardstock I started with Frenchy's Pink Pouf Flat Magical's from Lindy's Stampgang. I also used French Lilac Violet Starburst and Bonjour Butter Flat Fabio Sprays. I stamped and stencilled on the background with Chrome Yellow and Majestic Violet Archival Inks. On the Heart I Rubbed some Opal Magic Wax Royal Robes and Royal Aubergine Nuvo Mousse.

Below are several close-ups to show the effect of the cage...
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog...

Life seeks life and loves life. 
The opening of a catkin of a willow,
 in the flight of the butterfly, 
in the chirping of a tree-toad
 or the sweep of an eagle,
my life loves to see how others live,
 exults in their joy, 
and so far is partner 
in their great concern.

October 2017 Dusty Attic DT Project

How are you all doing Blog Friends....Hope to find you well and creating away?
For my Dusty Attic Blog Project this month I once again used some Selfie photos of myself!!! I know...we do not scrap ourselves often enough and am trying to get over my low self image and just Scrap away, easy enough to do with these amazing Dusty chippies...The paper I used are old, very old, stash...They are Spring Garden #2 from Craft and You Design. The flowers are from Little Birdie.

I used the following frames, Ornate Frame #5 and Decorative Frame #1. Sadly the photos don't do justice to the effect the Lindy's Spray has on the frames! After some gesso I first painted them with Frenchy's Pink Pouf and Pink Ladies Pink  Flat Magicals.  Once dry I painted with Cocklebells Coral Starburst Spray. 

Adding a few hearts from the Heart Attack Border #2 in the frame gives an interesting effect.

How cute is the round black Word Tag that fits snugly in the smallest frame? I also used some Mini Word Tabs, and Small Latice pieces that I painted with black Gesso as fillers between my layers and flowers.

I also used the Leaves #3 stencil with glue and Mega Flakes from Indigo Blu ... just love the shiny details it added to the page!

Please make sure to visit the Dusty Attic on-line shop for these and much more...

Start by doing what's necessary,
 then do what's possible,
 and suddenly you are 
doing the impossible.

Dusty Attic August 2017 DT page

Hello all my dear Blog friends...
Today I share another of my Pinterest Doors that is the inspiration for this month's Dusty Attic DT post...

Along with various Dusty pieces I also used paper from 49&Market. I used Tattered and Seeds of Love from the Vintage Artistry collection.

Using the Damask Stencil, I stencilled the background with Distress Oxides Iced Spruce and Black Soot. Spritzed with water and dried and added some random Grit paste as well through the stencil. I also used several layers of the following Distress oxides to build my background...Broken China, Fossilized Amber and Frayed Burlap.

The Corner Flourish #4 was Gesso'd and a little Distress Grid Paste was added on the leaves. To achieve the same Teal colour present in the photo, I mixed some Blue, Green and White acrylic paints and painted it on the flourish. I also touched the raised areas with a little Mystic Turquoise Antique Brilliance Wax.

After Gesso'ing the Brick Wall and Perforated Mesh pieces, I used the Patina and Rust past sets from Prima to treat the  chipboards.

The cute little Water Pump was treated as follows...Gesso...and then painted with Olive Green and Sandstone Coulourcraft Brusho's. After drying I added a little Grid paste and when dry some  Vermilion Brusho. Also added a gem 'water drop'.

The next few photos show the background before inking with the Distress Oxides and the steps of colouring the water pump.

These are the pieces I used from the Dusty Attic Shop.
