#Like A Boss – Dusty Attic DT

Whoo hoo it’s Friday and today I am sharing a layout using some awesome chipboard by Dusty Attic Chipboard.

 I had so much fun creating this layout and wanted to try and keep it simple as the papers are quite bold. So with this mind I decided to keep the colours to a minimum – orange, blue black and white.

The papers I used are by Fab Scraps #teens collection (I love this range – perfect for boy layouts). I covered the cogs, arrows, hashtag and title chipboard in white gesso first to help the colour pop. The skull I covered with black gesso.

For the arrows I used Dylusions Calypso Team and used a paint brush to cover the chipboard.

For the cogs and title I used Distress Stain Spiced Marmalade and Fluro Orange acrylic paint. Once they dried I then used a blending tool with Distress Oxide Black Soot to go around the edges.

I wanted to add more black to my page so I decided to used the page pebbles chipboard and ink with black archival Ink.

To finish off the layout, I used the fluro orange paint with a little amount of water, white gesso and Dylusions spray to splatter on my background and also on the small skull.

Fly High – Mixed Media Tag

Hello and happy Thursday everyone!!! 
Today I am sharing with you all my very first mixed media tag I created for Sassy Scrappers. I had so much fun creating this tag and can’t wait to create some more!! There is a process video at the bottom of the blog if you would like to see how I created the tag.

To create the tag, I used the packaging from a 2 minute noodle box and covered it with Prima Rose Quartz – Grateful Heart pp.
Then using the dabbing technique I applied the following Distress Oxide Inks – Twisted Citron, Peacock Feathers, Abandoned Coral and Wild Honey. (I stamped the inks onto my craft mat and spritzed with water before dabbing and dried in between colours)
Once I was happy with the colours for my background, I then used the font stamp from Darkroom Door Hummingbirds set. Using the same stamp set, I stamped the hummingbird and leafy branch onto some white cardstock and used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Embossing Powder – Black Forest Black.
I then cut out the hummingbird and using a waterpen, I then applied Distress Oxide Inks Seedless Preserves and Salty Ocean to my hummingbird and applied some cheesecloth to the back.  I then inked around the edges of the tag using Distress Oxide Ink Black Soot.
After adhering my stamped bird, I then stamped “Fly High” which is from the same stamp set and added some splattering using Dylusions White Linen Spray.
And there you have it….. a mixed media tag!!!  I hope I have inspired you to create something special.
