Dusty Attic July Mood Board Challenge – Journey Layout

Wow! Can you believe we are now in JULY?!! I think this year has just flown by….. anyway new month means new mood board challenge at Dusty Attic. So today I am sharing my take on the challenge. I decided to create a layout using a photo of Dwayne and I on the cruise. This layout’s style is very different to my usual style but I wanted to go back to basics.

So let’s get started…..

For the papers I have used 7 Dots Studio’s Air Mail range, which was perfect for the chippy that I used.  I also used their tags, stickers and die cuts. I inked all the edges of my paper, dies and stickers using Distress Archival ink in Vintage photo. I added some stamp stitching around the edges of my background paper using Faded Jeans Distress Archival ink.

For the Compass Rose chipboard I applied some white gesso and then sprayed it with Distress Oxide Sprays – Cracked Pistachio, Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain to give a patina type look.

The Travel Border chipboard I applied white gesso again and then using a foam blending tool applied Faded Jeans and Barn Door Distress Archival Ink.

For the Blueprint Journey chipboard I also covered with white gesso and then using Distress Archival ink pad – Spiced Marmalade I swiped the ink pad over the chipboard until it was covered. To finish the layout I splattered using Faded Jeans Distress Stain Spray.

Picture Perfect Mixed Media Layout – The Crafter’s Workshop DT

Happy Thursday my lovelies!!!

Today I am back with another video but this time I created a scrapbook layout using some pretty cool products. So sit back, relax and I hope you enjoy both my step by step tutorial and video tutorial which is at the end of the blog xx

I started with some white cardstock and tore some strips of Tim Holtz Tissue Paper, then applied them to the cardstock using TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte. I used my heat tool to dry once I was happy.

Next I applied some crackle medium around the edges of the tissue paper. Once dry I then used Distress Oxide Sprays in Faded Jeans, Walnut Stain and Fossilized Amber to build my background. I used a paint brush to move the sprays around the page until I was happy and made sure to dry in between colours.

I love using this stamp by Darkroom Door – Number Border, it is perfect for the boy layouts. I stamped it randomly with black archival ink.

The next step I wanted to add some more texture so using TCW835 Plaid Fringe stencil in the 6×6, I used a bristle brush to apply Nuvo Embellishment Mousse.

I then used TCW9027 Grecian Gold Modeling Paste and TCW737 Love Sonnet 6×6 stencil just to add a little “Pop” to my layout.

I inked the edges of some corrugated cardstock using Walnut Stain Distress Ink and created some tags using some patterned cardstock from my stash. For the chipboard title, I applied some TCW9001 White Gesso and then used Distress Oxide Ink to colour it. I used the same 3 colours as the sprays.

To finish off the layout I inked around the edges of the cardstock with Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink and added some splatters.

 

Thanks for dropping and I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial, until next time xx

Sail The Seas Mixed Media Tag for Dusty Attic

Hello there my fellow crafters!!! So some of you would have seen on my social media links that was I recently teaching on a crafting cruise, one of the lovely ladies on the cruise asked us to join in on a tag swap. The theme was sail the seas so I this is what I created.

Sail The Seas Tag for Dusty Attic

To begin I coated my tag with TCW9007 Clear gesso. Once dry, I then created my background using Distress Oxide Inks and sprays. Then stamped a wood grain stamp over the top, I used Tim Holtz Birch and Pine stamp set.

I applied a thin coat of TCW9001 white gesso on all my chipboard pieces. For the Port Hole chipboard, I used Distress Oxide Ink pads to create a rusty patina effect.

I also used the Distress Oxide Ink Pads to the Adventure tab and the mini fish skeleton chipboard.

For the compass chipboard I lightly brushed the coffee and sepia archival ink and then painted TCW9028 Antique Gold Modeling Paste.

I trimmed the Fish Net panel down to the size I wanted and then heat embossed using Stampendous Aged Ivory Embossing Enamel. I then adhered it to the tag and wrapped some twine around the the tag.

I used Graphic 45 By The Sea collection for the ship in the port hole and the backing of the tag. To finish off the tag I added some art stones and glass beads.

My Happy Place Art Journal Page for TCW

Hello there my lovelies!!!! I am so glad to be back in the swing of things after having 2 months away recovering. I have missed creating and sharing my work with you all. So today I am sharing an art journal page I created for The Crafter’s Workshop using one of my favourite stencils from the new winter 2019 release!!! There is also a video at the end of the blog.

To begin with I trimmed some watercolour paper to fit my square Dylusions art journal. Then used Distress Oxide Sprays – Vintage Photo, Walnut Stain and Cracked Pistachio. I used my heat tool to dry in between colours and also sprayed some water to help the spray move around on my paper.

Next I sprayed Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Spray onto TCW267 Ledger. Then I sprayed some water onto the stencil, flipped it over and flicked the remaining spray all over my paper.

I dried my paper with my heat tool, then using the same stencil and sponge dauber, I applied Distress Oxide Ink Walnut Stain.

Next I used TCW854 Layered Wallpaper and TCW9009 Black Modeling Paste to the corners of my page.

Once it dry, I then stamped Coffee Archival Ink and Darkroom Door Stamp Numbers Border. I also stamped another number stamp around the edges of the page using Black Soot Distress Oxide Ink.

I used Distress Oxide inks and sprays Cracked Pistachio, Mermaid Lagoon and Vintage Photo to stamp Darkroom Door’s Butterfly stamp. I wrapped some gold and white twine around the page, adhered the butterflies and finished off with some Tim Holtz stickers.

Below is the process video.

Thanks for dropping and I can’t wait to share my next project with you all soon
