Two amazing layouts - Belinda Spencer

Hello Dusty Attic peeps!

Belinda here today to share two layouts I have created for April.

The first layout is based on the April mood board. I loved the fresh colours so much I just had to create another layout with them.

'You Light Up My Life'

I started by swiping some Sugar Plum Dusty In Colour over my background patterned paper using a silicone brush. I diluted the Sugar Plum as well as Sunburnt Orange and Pesto paints and flicked them over the surface.

I layered patterned papers as well as the stunning Delicate Frame # 3 over the paint swipe. Then I painted the foliage chipboard pieces using the same Dusty In Colour paints. I added in clusters of chipboard foliage and sweet Dusty in Bloom flowers.

I painted the cute Mini Heart Button, Mini Dots and the title using heavy white gesso.

'Super Karate Kid'

I used the Week 14 Sketch for inspiration for this boy layout. I am loving the fabulous sketches!! They make creating a layout so easy. I kept to a monochromatic colour scheme for this layout to make sure my photos really stood out. I used the Crosshatch Stencil with heavy white gesso to add some interest to the dark grey background patterned paper.

I painted all of the chipboard with three coats of heavy white gesso to maintain the monochromatic look but also give it a crisp white look.

I covered the lightening bolt with co-ordinating patterned paper.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.

Paint Brush Box - Kasia Salmanowicz - Mood Board Inspiration


Today I’d like to show you my new project for Dusty Attic using mood board for April. There are shades of green with which I usually do not work so it was a bit of challenge for me;).

I used a lot of chip boards with leaves, which I first secured with a thin layer of white gesso and later colored with a green color spray. But at the beginning – I stuck my wooden box with scrapbooking paper. I used very torn pieces of paper and glued it with heavy body gel. Next I used a background from chipboard which I also took on smaller, irregular pieces. 

Then I wrapped the box with a flexible metal wire and sisal. I added Dusty Attic leaves and dandelions. I also joined some metal cogs and decors.
There are also paper flowers and gauze.

I invite you to view photos and I wish you creative ideas.

Dreamer of Dreams - Cindy Wille - Mood Board Inspiration

So we're already halfway in april, can you believe that?! While we're heading for summer, it did snow a little yesterday in the Netherlands, April is a weird month ;). So I was glad I could create something summery and bright and vibrant using the Dusty Attic April Mood Board. 

I decided to only use 3 out of 6 colors and came up with this light dreamy canvas using Lindy's Gang sprays and Squirts and Finnabair wax and paint. I actually started out much more bright colored just to tone it down at the end, using lots and lots of White Gesso!

I've created a video for you guys to watch the whole process. And I would love for you to subscribe to my channel of course :)! Check out the video below or watch it on YouTube.

I've used several pieces of Dusty Attic chipboard on this canvas. You can see the Dusty Attic products I've used down below and follow the link to the store by clicking on the images.

Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!

Flutter Layout

'She Loves'

Hello dear Dusty FANattics!
Happy to share with you my Dusty Attic

 project this month, a pretty colourful Layout
  featuring the gorgeous Graphic 45 Flutter
 Collection and some beautiful Dusty Attic chipboard.

I have created this bright and colourful layout on a watercolor paper
background. I have cut strips from the Graphic 45 Flutter collection
and added these pieces to the one side. I have layered my photo 
(via Pinterest) onto lots of die-cut elements. I have added some
 colour to the other side with a stencil and Tim Holtz Distress inks.
 I used the same stencil and added some Finnabair's light paste
 and then sprinkled some glitter onto the paste whilst it was still wet.
The chipboard pieces have been painted with Finnabair's metallique 
paints. I have coloured a section of the chipboard title with distress 
ink and the 'She Loves' part heat embossed. I have adorned my photo
 cluster with some pretty Prima flowers and lots of fussy-cut 
butterflies from the Flutter collection. 

  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Papercrafting!
