Hi there my lovelies!! Today I am sharing a mixed media layout I created for the Aussie YouTube Hops June 2019. So this month we had to use the mood board for our inspiration. I used the colours of the board and the word ” PLAY”.
The video link is below… and guess what? I am speaking in it! Well at the start of the video I am (shock….horror lol). In the description box of the video you will find the list of the other designer’s projects with their links too.
I hope you enjoyed my tutorial and I would love to see some of your interpretations of this mood board.
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.

This month I focused my attention to the colours of the mood board and the flowers. This is what I created…
I stenciled the background of the canvas with Ranger Crackle Medium and a stencil from The Crafter’s Workshop TCW833 Fantastical . Then I used Purple and Blue Chalk Spray by 13Arts. I also added a little bit of stamping to the stenciled area.
I covered all the chipboard with TCW9001 white gesso and then cut both frames in half. Once all adhere to the canvas, I used Ken Oliver colour burst powders on the chipboard as well as the 13ARts sprays.
I painted the back of the light globe with Art Alchemy Opal Magic paint and added some fibres, art stones and micro beads to finish it off.

Hello there everyone!! Today is my turn on The Crafter’s Workshop bog, and I am sharing a mixed media layout I created to teach on a crafting cruise I recently just got home from. So let me show you how I created this layout.
To begin with I lightly coated my patterned cardstock with TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte and once dried I then applied TCW9001 White Gesso in a diamond shape using my spatula. Then I stamped a text stamp using versamark and heat embossed with white embossing powder.
Next I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals – Industrial Chic to add colour to my background. I used a small paint brush and water for this which I find gives me more control.
Next I used TCW202s Harlequin stencil with Ranger Crackle Medium. I used a heat tool to dry and the added some stamping using black archival ink. I also added some splattering to the background using water and white gesso.
Using the same 3 colours above, I smoosh 4 cards that I cut from the some pattern cardstock into the magicals. This creates a grungy type feel. I then distress the edges and create a photo mount cluster for my photo.
Next I applied TCW9001 White Gesso to the paper straws and Dusty Attic Chipboard. I then painted the chipboard with TCW9013 Iridescent Gold Heavy Body Acrylic Paint. I also used this paint to splatter the background and to paint onto the back of the Prima Melange Art Pebbles.
For the paper straws, I painted the Steampunk Sepia magical onto it and then cut to size. I also added the left over magical mix to the flowers. Then I adhered all the layers onto the cardstock and added some beads to finish off the layout.
Here are some close ups of the layout.
Thanks for stopping by and I will be back soon with another project
Hello! Hello! Hello! I am back to share with you all my interpretation of this month’s Dusty Attic mood board.
I will not lie, I found the colours of this mood board quite hard as purple (any shade of it) is a hard colour for me to work with but I love pushing the boundaries and ended up having a lot of fun creating this layout.
For the patterned paper I used 7 Dots Garden Party – the colours matched the mood board perfectly. Along with flowers by Little Birdie and Plum Preserve Metallique Acrylic Paint by Finnabair.
The sketch grid stencil I used in the background is by The Crafter’s Workshop and I used Paper Texture Paste by Finnabair. I also added some art stones and beads to the flowers.
I covered the Geometric Panel pieces in black gesso and used Art Alchemy Waxes. For the Clockworks chipboard, I covered in white gesso and used the waxes and some archival inks and finally for the title I used archival ink on word “Always” after I painted the words in white gesso.

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.
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.
