Card Set - Anguree Van Rensburg

Hello dear friends

I hope you all had a great weekend and created some beautiful things in you craft time. Today, I'm back sharing these two cards I made using a variety of different little Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces and the gorgeous 49 And Market Bold and Beautiful 8 x 8 Collection

Products used

For my first card I embossed the Broken Bits Circles with pink Embossing Powder. I then painted the Mini Foliage leaves with 13@rts paint to allow it to stand out more.

I don't know about you, but I just love our Mini Captions, they are perfect for both cards and layouts with smaller photos. Here I simply inked the chipboard piece with white Brilliance Ink.

Products Used

For this card I used even more Dusty chippies. Yes, the Juliette Balcony pieces are defnitely some of my favourites. It's so easy  to create with them.

To accompany this gorgeous piece I inked Broken wire bits to create a bit of a background. I used more Foliage leaves, which I again painted with 13@rts paint. I inked one of the smaller rose blooms with white ink and tucked it in under my flowers.

Last but not least I finished it off with a sentiment sticker from 13@rts.

Thank you so much for spending time with us today. I hope you enjoyed your visit to our blog.
Till next time, have fun and take care.

Hearts desire - Anat Weksler

Hello crafty friends!
Anat here sharing my second project for October - a Heart shaped box inspired by the gorgeous mood board.


I started by priming the box using Heavy White Gesso, leaving brush strokes for some texture.
When dry I cut Industrial Corners and  adhered the pieces around the box, together with the smaller parts of the Jumbo Cogs set. 
On the lid I adhered Chicken Wire Panel.

Next I painted all box, with chipboards on, using Lindy's Hockey Puck Black Squirt.
This squirt is a Black with Blue Grey in it and I love it! I colred it unevenly, leaving darker spots and stains here and there.
After drying the paint I rubed Aged Brass and Red Amber Finnabair's Metalique waxes.

I brushed Industrial Barbed Stars and some cogs from the Jumbo Cogs set, with Finnabair Rust Paste and Hot embossed randomly, on top, a bit of  Stampendous Aged Green EP.
I also embossed the chipboards glued around the box.

I cut the embossed chipboards and adhered them on top of the Chicken wire. Next colored one compass from the Mini Compasses set using Lindy's Whale Watch Blue Spray. 
Last step was to adhere the compass and add Finnabair's mini hardware pieces.

Hope you like it!

Handsome Boy - Joanne Simons

Hello hello hello Dusty friends!

Jo here to share with you today a layout.

I am the first to say that I'm not really a mixed media person or a grungy person so I thought I would throw it out there and challenge myself a little.  Its always good to step outside your comfort zone right?

I started using a piece of 12 x 12 that already had the look of mixed media without me even having to get my hands dirty!

I then set about making my cog clusters as grungy as I could.

I arranged them first in two clusters.  One for the right side of the photo and one for the left.

It was a simple as randomly dabbing over some blue and brown distress oxide ink and also leaving some of the chippy bare.

For a bit of extra interest, I used the new broken bits No.1 numbers and added just a swipe of black in over them.

Here are a couple of close ups

I decided against a big title and instead added one of the mini tabs with Handsome Boy just for a pop of black.  To get a little bit of extra texture to my page I then added some micro beads

Never Stop Dreaming - Michelle Carrick

Good afternoon peeps,
This gorgeous photo of my daughter needed to documented!
I was waiting for the New Penelope Dee Collection - Out and About!
A quick simple effective layout!!

To the back ground page I chalked a script stencil on using Make Art - Acorn. 
Then using the Starry night stencil with Nuvo - Glitter paste. I flicked Pink; blue and white paint on to the back ground.

Once again I painted all the Dusty Attic chip boards with a mixture of Prima - Black Berry; Iris Potion; Butterfly Spells; Red Wine; Deep waters 
and raven Black.

I tried to do a 3D effect with the Star chippie!

Using Jewellery wire with silver beads to try give
Another starry effect.

As well as adding hearts in the wire!
I placed and attached blue angel hair under the Tags
then attached everything down!
After all is down I used Ranger - Diamond Stickles to highlight!
