Hi there everyone, I am back with another project share and today I decided to create a Christmas card. I know it is very rare of me to create a card but I thought it might be time to step out of my comfort zone for a little bit.
- To start my card I used an old music sheet from my stash and sprayed all over using Colorations Spray – Warm. Once dry, I then tore to fit my card.
3. Next I painted my Green Tara large Poinsetta flower with Gold Metal Effects medium using a paint brush. I applied 2 coats of this for complete coverage.
4. Next I used a paint brush to paint my chipboard flourishes using Minx Shimmering Ink – Decadent. Make sure you give this a good shake to make sure all the shimmering goodness is throughout the ink.
5. Then all there is needs to be done is adhere everything to the card and I found some Christmas stamps in my stash which I used on some white card stock and used Vintage Photo archival Ink. The backing of the sentiment I used some glitter paper and adhere a piece of ribbon from my stash also.
Thanks for dropping by and I will be back very soon with more inspiration for you all

Hey there everyone, I hope you are all having a great weekend. Well today I am sharing my very first design team member creation for Art Anthology. I have a process video at the end of the blog so feel free to check it out xx
- To start I covered my pages with white gesso and then use Metal Effects – Dimensional Medium in the Silver with a stencil.
2. Once dry, I then sprayed my with some water and then sprayed Colorations Sprays in Siesta Keys, Peacock Feathers and Indigo in that order. The water helps the colours blend.
3. For my title, I stenciled “Create Art” using black archival ink and then cut the 2 pieces out and mounted onto black cardstock.
4. I wanted to colour the stamped butterflies so I used the same sprays for my background and used an aqua pen (water pen) to create a watercolour effect.
Here is some more pictures of the finished page

Hey Hey my lovelies!!! Today is my turn on the Dusty Attic blog and today I am sharing my August mood board challenge project.
For my inspiration I used the picture and the some of the colours. When I look at this picture it makes me think of travelling somewhere tropical so my tag is just that….. travelling and discovering.
I covered the 2 tags with Tim Holtz Postale tissue wrap and inked them with Vintage Photo Distress Archival Ink. Then applied a white crackle paste. Once dry, I then added some blue ink to highlight the crackle. I used the same ink to colour the resin stars and highlighted with some bronze wax.
I covered the Industrial Balloon and Nautical Frame chipboard with Art Anthology Rust Effect Paste. Then I adhere paper to the back of the chipboard from Stamperia – Around The World Range. I also added some of the blue ink to the paper to match the background of the tag.
I heat embossed the Diamond Panel with Stampendous Marine Embossing Enamel and trimmed to fit the tag.
I inked the Geo Tribal Arrow with Vintage Photo Archival Ink and covered with Dusty Attic Clear Crackle Varnish. I heat embossed the Roman Numerals with a bronze embossing powder. For the Discover title, I used black embossing powder and then applied a light coat of orange metallic acrylic paint.
To finish off I added art stones and micro beads.

Hello there my lovelies!! Today I am up on The Crafter’s Workshop blog and I decided to something a little bright and fun and useful at the same time. So I decided to give a coffee container and a Pringles tin a face lift. I also have a video at the end of the blog so please feel free to watch it all happen before your very eyes.
To begin my projects, I applied 2 coats of TCW9001 White Gesso with a paint brush. I dried between coats with my heat tool.
Next I applied a range of acrylic paints to the 2 containers and used my heat tool to dry
For the tall tin I used TCW810 Blooming Garden stencil in the 6×6 along with TCW9016 Spun Sugar Heavy Body Acrylic Paint and again used a make up sponge. To finish it off, I used a purple and pink coloured acrylic paint to highlight some of the stencil.
Thanks for dropping and I will be back soon with another project xx
Hi there Everyone, today I am up on the Dusty Attic blog with my take on this month’s mood board challenge. Man how are amazing is this mood board? I love those earthy tones!
So for my inspiration I used the colours of the mood board. I also used the picture as well…. when I see this photo I think of how gorgeous the sunset is and what would be magical during a sunset? A hot air balloon ride!!! So here is what I created with all that in mind.

Hello there my creative friends!!! It’s that time again for another DT post for The Dusty Attic and today I get to share a layout I created as a class on a crafting cruise I was on a few months ago.
The papers I used are Dear Diary by Mintay and the flowers are from Prima Marketing Inc. The flowers I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals – Totally 80’s. I stamped the background using a prima text stamp.
I covered the clock, butterfly, script, doily and “sweet memories” with white gesso and then used the Totally 80’s magical to add colour. For the leaves, roman numerals and “Be Happy” chipboard, I left them raw and applied the magical directly onto them. I loved how the sparkle of the magical just intensified doing it this way.
I inked around the edges of the clock face with Black Soot ink and added some splatters using the magicals.

Happy Thursday Everyone! Today is my turn at The Crafter’s Workshop Blog and I am sharing this page I created using photo paper, Distress Oxides and of course TCW Products. There is also a process video at the end of the blog if you wish to watch me in action.
The Crafter’s Workshop provided me with some product to create this project. The opinions I share are solely my own.
For this I used my large Dina Wakely art journal, I am still trying to get use to using such a large journal but who doesn’t love stepping out of their comfort zone? lol
To being I used a sheet of A4 glossy photo paper and apply my distress oxides to the paper using a rubber brayer and also using the smooshing technique.
I used my heat tool to dry between colours. Then used TCW812 Coronet Wreath with more Distress Oxides.
Now for the magical part….. I used a baby wipe to wipe away the oxides and POW!!! The end result is amazing!! The colours are vibrant
I used TCW9002 Black Gesso to cover up a page in my journal that I did some experimenting on a while ago. Then for a border, I used TCW804 Mesh Blocks to add some doodling with my Uni Posca white pen.
After adhering my photo paper to the page, I then added some stamping for a title and just like that another art journal page done. Here is the video….
Thanks for dropping and I look forward to sharing my next project with you all soon xx
Hey Hey Everyone!! Today I am showing you all my take on this month’s Dusty Attic mood board. I took my inspiration from the blue, green and brown tones and the fact of it being outdoors in nature.
And this is what I came up with….
For the background I used Distress Oxides – Cracked Pistachio and Faded Jeans. The stamps I used were Darkroom Door – Numbers Border stamp and Kaisercraft Brick texture stamp.
For the title I used Blueprint Play and Industrial Barbed Stars. I covered the stars with Prima Rust Effect Paste and used the 2 Distress Oxides and Prima Art Alchemy Waxes in Green Brocade and Lucky Emerald to add highlights. For the Play chipboard, I inked with black ink and then covered with Faded Jeans Distress Oxides.
I used the same products above for the second Industrial Barbed Stars, Industrial Scrolls and Industrial Border #1. I did cut these pieces into sections to make it fit and make the layout look like it was full.
For the corrugated cardstock, I painted it first with silver acrylic paint and then applied the Prima Rust Effect Paste. I also covered some of the numbers from Roman Numerals in the rust effect paste.
To finish the layout I splattered using the Rust Effect Paste and Distress Oxides.
Thanks for dropping and I will be back soon with another project
