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.

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.

OMG can you believe it is December?!!! Where the heck has this year gone? Well today is my turn up on the Dusty Attic blog and I am sharing with you my interpretation of this month’s mood board….. and can I just say Wow!!! I love these colours this month, very rarely will I do anything with a Christmas theme. Not because I don’t like Christmas….. I LOVE Christmas but I find it is a busy time of year and photo’s are never how I like them but I thought I would change it up this year and create a Christmas Tag.
I used a chipboard sheet and cut it to 3 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches. The first paper layer is a Basic Grey pp and the second is 7 Dots Studio – Cotton Candy range.
I tore up a piece of corrugated cardstock and dry brushed white gesso onto it. I adhered it and some cheesecloth to the tag. I also cut a silver and white paper straw in half and adhered it to the corrugated cardstock.
I used white embossing powder to cover my small string frame and Twisted Iron #2 chipboard and adhered them to the tag. I painted the flowers with Art Alchemy Metallique Light Patina acrylic paint and added some antique silver Glitzin’ Glamour to the center of the flowers before adhering to the tag.
Next I covered the Wordpl@y #5 with white gesso, making sure I get into the letters. Once dry I lightly covered the chipboard with some silver ink. Then to finish off the tag I added some art stones and pebbles as fillers and added a chalk spray in turquoise over the art stones.

Hey Everyone! Over at Dusty Attic we are doing Notebook November so today I am sharing my notebook using the November mood board as inspiration.
For my notebook, I used the purple tones for my inspiration…. this was way out of my comfort zone as I very rarely use purples but I have to say I really enjoyed creating this. So here is my notebook…… oh and I forgot to mention there is a process video at the end of the blog if you would like to see how I created it.
I started off by painting my notebook and chippy pieces with black gesso. Then started to build all the layers and texture with stenciling, chipboard, Prima Melange Art Pebbles and art stones.
I used Prima Metallique Plum Preserves Acrylic Paint as a base coat and then used several Art Alchemy Waxes to add different tones. For the butterfly I used Prima Sparks Acrylic Paint in Butterfly Spells and Mermaid Sparkle. Then added some glitter glue for an added sparkle.
To finish off the notebook I added some micro beads in the copper but felt the colour was too strong so I toned them down with some black gesso. (I did this after I filmed)

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
Wow can you believe it is already AUGUST?!!! I seriously have no idea where this year has gone! So today I am up on the Dusty Attic blog with my interpretation of the August mood board and can I just say this month’s board is absolutely stunning!!! I used the colours for my inspiration and was lucky enough to have the perfect photo to match!!
For my layout I am using some of the chipboard from the new release and Jen has done an amazing job creating these little beauties. I actually had to stop myself from adding more chippy!!!
For all of my chipboard pieces apart from the wordpl@ay #1 piece, I applied a coat of white gesso and then added colours using various Prima inks and sprays. I also applied some inks to the Dusty in Bloom flowers.
For my background I used a stencil and modeling paste to add some texture. I also heat embossed the frame around the photo and then added some highlights with inks.

Hello fellow Dusty Attic lovers!!! I am back today to share with you my interpretation of this month’s mood board challenge and I used the colours for my inspiration.
I used 7 Dots Studio Chestnuts patterned paper from the Yuletide range as my base background paper. I added some white gesso and Dylusions Calypso Teal spray to the background and then used Stampers Anonymous stamp sets – Ultimate Grunge and Reflections.
I left the chicken wire chipboard raw and cut into 3 sections. I also left 3 of the Industrial Chains raw. For the other 3 chains I painted with white gesso and then used Art Alchemy Waxes in White Gold, Brushed Iron, Aged Brass & Rich Copper.
I also painted the Mini Cogs, Industrial Stars, Ship Wheels and my words from Word Pack #2 with white gesso. The stars & cogs I used Dylusions Calypso Teal and brushed some black ink over the top.
For the title I used Dina Wakley Scribble Sticks in Ruby over the top of the gesso. I also used the Art Alchemy Waxes on the Ship Wheels chipboard.
