Love Your Smile – Dusty Attic May Mood Board

Hello Everyone, I am back today to share with you all my take on this month’s Dusty Attic mood board challenge. For my inspiration I decided to focus on the gold, yellow and orange tones for my layout.

And this is what I created……. For the paper I decided to use 7 Dot’s Studio Cotton Candy range as the tones were perfect for the mood board.

For the background I mixed 13arts Ayeeda Inks Yellow and Scarlet to create the orange. I also used Darkroom Door Texture Stamp Numbers with black archival ink.

I covered all my chipboard with white gesso and then painted over the Cog Cluster, Skeleton Clock Face small and Fancy Frames #2. I cut 2 sides from the Fancy Frames and adhered them to the photo along with a tab from Mini Tabs #6.

I then covered the chippy with Prima Watercolor Confections Paints – Tropicals and inked around the edges using a black charcoal ink pad.

For my corner cluster of chipboard I used half of the Skeleton Clock Face small and some cogs from the Cog Cluster. I then added my “memories” word from Wordpl@y #2.

To finish off the layout I used Mini Captions #11 (Love Your Smile). For this I painted white gesso, black gesso and Art Alchemy Paints – Metallique Ancient Coin. Then splattered all over the layout using the same paint.

Art Journal Cover

Hello Everyone!!!

Today I am sharing with you all a mixed media art journal cover I created using some amazing TCW products and Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces. My inspiration for this cover is from the Dusty Attic September Mood Board.

To start the background I applied TCW 9001 White Gesso using a dry paint brush. Then to blend the edges a little bit, I used a baby wipe. Once the gesso was dry (which doesn’t take long as it’s only a light coverage) I then used TCW202s Mini Harlequin stencil along with TCW9004 Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste using a silicone brush.

I then dried the modeling paste using my heat gun. Once that was dry I then used some 13arts Water based inks mixed with water in colours – Yellow, Scarlet and Bordeaux. Again used the heat gun to dry and then applied some stamping using black archival ink, Stampers Anonymous stamp and Darkroom Door texture stamp.

Once I was happy with the background I then covered my small doily from Doily #5 with TCW9001 White Gesso and covered the small Fleur de Lis with TCW9015 Heavy Body Acrylic Paint Black Licorice

Next I lightly sprinkled some Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shakers – Bavarian Blue and just lightly sprayed with water. I then coloured the cheesecloth with Colour Blast Shimmer Dust – Cobalt and Navy and some water. And now to assemble!!! As you can see I have cut the painted black doily chipboard in half, added the cheesecloth and some art stones. I adhered all my pieces using iCraft Mixed Media Adhesive

Last of all I adhered the Fleur de Lis chipboard along with the black title from Wordpl@y #3 black chipboard in the center.
