I am loving the new His World collection… as a mum of all boys this collection opens up so many possibilities when it comes to scrapbooking those precious masculine photos. Also make sure you check out my process video at the end of the blog.
I used the chipboard pieces that comes in the collection and applied Art Anthology’s Rust Texture Paste to them.
The stamps I used are by Kaisercraft – Scrap Yard and Time Machine and added some extra splatters using Art Anthology’s Colorations Spray – Raider.
I used a mixture of the mat and quote sheets, I distressed all the edges and used Distress Archival Ink – Ground Espresso.

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.

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.

Hi there everyone!!! Today I am sharing my take on the Lindy’s Stamp Gang June 2019 Challenge. This is my first time doing their challenge and I loved every minute creating my mini disc. I just adore this colour combo! If you would like to join in this month, click here to go to their blog.
For my background, I applied some TCW9001 white gesso to a chipboard disc along with some stamping, I used a Tim Holtz stamp and stencil set with black Versafine. I then added some crackle medium through TCW790 Micro Bricks stencil.
I then started building my background colour. I started off with Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Squirts – Emerald Eh? Once it was dry I then applied Starburst Squirts – Loonie Toonie Teal.
I added Art Alchemy Wax – Firebird onto the stenciled area but thought it needed a little bit more orange so I mixed white gesso, water and Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magical Shaker – Oktoberfest Orange and splattered onto the disc.
I also used Tim Holtz paper dolls, small talk sticker sheets and vintage design tape.
Thanks for dropping by and make sure you click on the process video below… I apologise for the 2 light discs on my table xx
Happy Thursday Everyone!! Today I am sharing my newest art journal page for The Crafter’s Workshop. I love how this page turned out, so bright and fun.
Let’s get to the tutorial!! To be begin, I used a page from an old dictionary and tore that page into strips. I used TCW9011 Gel Medium Matte to adhere to my art journal page.
Once the medium is dry, I then used a paint brush to apply some acrylic chalk paint.
The next stencil I used was TCW832 Script Words
I used TCW9001 White Gesso and stamped with a lid to create some circles. Then used my spatula to create a line pattern.
I used archival ink and some different stamps to add more texture to the background.
I then decided to add some more stamped images. I used Distress Crayons to colour the images and to add shading. Here you can see I am using an aqua pen (water pen) to blend the crayon.
Thanks for dropping by and I hope you enjoyed my tutorial xx
