Fantastic - Heather McMahon

Hello and welcome back to The Dusty Attic. It's Heather McMahon here today to share a layout I made using Artist Trading Cards. ATC's are great fun to use in all sorts of ways. Of course, I used many gorgeous Dusty Attic chippies on these and I love the effect.

I used the same grungy background across all the cards then used an eclectic mix of chippies on the individual cards. I coated some of the chippies with Tinby Designs Metallic Melts for a cool, antique effect.

I taught this layout as a class at the PaperArts expo in Melbourne a few months ago. It was a fun class with fabulous ladies in it!

Happy scrappin'!

Live Today - Helena Johansson - Mood Board Inspiration

This months moodboard is amazing! I love the beachy colors and photos! Perfect for a summer photo of my ds :)

Here's the moodboard - don't you just need to go on a vacation now?? :)

Dusty Attic products used for this project:

I kept the title "Live Today" chippie raw, to go with the colors of the moodboard.

Creative Script stencil, used with Dusty Attic Texture Paste.

I used three of the scrolls from the Federation Frame Set. I painted them white and then used turqouise mist with a small brush to paint them a bit. I did the same with the Scroll Border that you see below:

I kept the stars #3 raw. These stars are one of my favs - they go with just about any project!

And now for some close-ups!

Thank you for stopping by today!

Remember the Mood Board challenge doesn't close until mid-night tonight if you have an entry to upload.


Dusty Attic - June Mood Board

Welcome to June!  How the months are flying past this year!  It's officially winter here in the antipodes, but we have been having chilly mornings and glorious hot sunny days!  Long may that last!

This months mood boards at Dusty Attic, as you can see, is reminiscent of the beach life - something that we are very fortunate to have a lot of here in New Zealand!  So this was easy for me to find a photo to suit! 

I had lots of fun creating coral and weaves using Dusty chipboard, embossing powder, texture paste and Colour Burst spray.

The corrugated cardboard that comes in handy packed 12 x 12 sheets is a staple 'go to' whenever I am doing an outdoors themed layout.

Don't you just love that little sand dollar style chippie?

Thanks for stopping by - and I look forward to seeing your June Dusty Attic Moodboard entry.
