Elsie - Pascale B - Mixed Media Canvas

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a new canvas. 

I primed the canvas with white gesso. When dry, I started to add several layers of paint with the help of a brayer. I also added a design with the Postcard Stencil. When happy with the result, I added some Clear Crackle Paste to the corners and borders.

I covered the Mystic Frame #1 with Gloden Metallic Flakes.

I primed the Spider Chrysanthemum, Flower Stamens, and Foliage #4 with White Gesso. Then I painted them with Ochre Liquid Acrylic paint and added Vintage Photo Distress ink to the edges. 

I added a few flowers to the composition, which I also distressed with Vintage Photo. 

To finish, I added glitter.

Gnomes Garden Tag - Pascale B Scrap

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a tag. 

I selected a medium size tag from the Tag Medley set. I've primed the tag with white gesso before adding some designs to the background. I used the River Stone stencil with the Graphite paste to add the first design like a small path. Then, I added the second design with the Flourish stencil and light modeling paste. When dry, I painted the background with black and brown for the path, and green for the forest background.
I primed all the chipboards I've selected with white gesso as well. Then, I painted them with different acrylic paints.

The Gnome was painted with carmin, brown and black paint. I used brown and black paints to color the small Fairy Door #1 and black and white for the stone. 

For the Grass Cluster #1, I used green and purple. I added a touch of Unicorn paste to add some fun.

I paint the head of the Toadstool Border with carmin and the grass with green paints.

When everything was to my taste, I glued everything together.

Sea Life Mixed media Panel - Pascale B

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a mixed-media panel inspired by the sea life.

First I primed my canvas board with black gesso. I added two designs. The first one with the River Stone Stencel and gold paste to represent the sea floor, and the Second with the Confetti #2 Stencil and Ice Crushed Jewel paste for the bubbles.

I also primed the chipboard with black gesso except for the Coral Elements. I covered the latter with a light modeling paste. With my spatula, I made some peaks to give some dimension to the coral.

Next, I covered all the cogs I've selected from the Jumbo Cogs #2 and Mini Cogs #2 sets with Rust Effect Pastes. 

I glued all the elements of the composition with a 3D gel except the Marine Mechanicals Fish. I selected different green, turquoise, and yellow waxes to color the Ocean Elements I've chosen.

For the Coral Mixed, I chose red and coral waxes. I highlighted all the elements with gold and silver waxes. 

I used different shades of blue and turquoise to color the fish. I highlighted the details with metallic waxes. When Happy, I glued the fish.

Cigar Box - Pascale B Scrap - Mixed Media

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a box.

I glued all the elements to build the box. When done, I primed it with two layers of white gesso. I added a design with the Ledger stencil and light modeling paste to the top and the sides.

I selected different gears in size and shape and used a 3D gel to glue them to the box. When the gel was dry, I primed all the gears and the Rose leaves from the Alice collection with white gesso. 

When the gesso was completely dry, I added brown paint with a lot of water to keep it neutral. Then I added a few flowers which I also painted.

To finish the composition, I just added metallic waxes.

Anne-Marie layout by Pascale B Scrap

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a vintage layout with a photo of one of my great aunts.

To begin, I primed the background with Clear Gesso. Next, I added a design with Floral #2 Stencil and Pearl Icing paste. When the paste was dry, I added some brown and black Distress inks to make the design pop up. 

I covered the Ornat Circle #2 with embossing powder that I was careful not to melt down completely to obtain a non-even surface. 

I primed all the chipboards I have selected with white gesso. Then I simply distressed the edges with black and brown inks. 

I attached a few ephemera under the photo, and then I made a cluster with Spring Bloom #3, Wildflower #4, Foliage #25, and a couple Poppy Heads. I added a few white flowers to the composition which  I altered with Distress inks as they were too white. 

I also included a Pocket Watch to remind the one concealed in her pocket. In the photo, we can definitely make out the chain. 

To finish, I splattered the background with glitter mixed with gel medium and water.

Ballerina Dreams - MDF Lantern - Kerstin Filou


  Hello everyone!

 Magical and dreamy, with snowflakes gently dancing in the sky, this lantern inspired me to create a snowy winter forest scene.



I primed the object with white acrylic paint and then highlighted it with brown acrylic paint using the dry brush technique. In the centre, I hung a transparent acrylic glass ornament, a little ballerina (before it was a christmas tree ornament).

I added a white cuddly skirt with tulle and small punched-out snowflakes to the ballerina. 

At the bottom of the lantern, there is an LED bottle bottom light, and above it, a big snowflake that has been glittered blue in some places. 

When the light is switched on, it looks like the snowflake is dancing over a frozen lake.

The base of the Hamsa had texture added to it and painted with Metalique paints. 

I've colored the chippies with differents Rust pastes and  Metalique waxes.
