Sandy Toes, Sunkissed Nose - Valerie Ouellet (Mood Board Inspiration)

Hi everyone! 
Here is my layout inspired by the Dusty Attic June Moodboard. I was very inspired by the doillies, the colors and fabrics. I applied clear gesso on my paper and I worked with 2-3 Lindy's colors. I added some embellishments to create a great texture on my background.

Forever in my Heart - Cathy Cafun

Hi everyone,

Cathy here today sharing a pretty canvas created with some of the new release Dusty Attic chipboard designs and one of the new Impact Titles.

"Forever in my Heart"

 I am in love with the new industrial chipboard designs which are perfect for masculine or feminine grunge/vintage themed layouts and just the thing for steampunk inspired creations.  This month I have created a canvas using the Industrial Hearts and teamed it with one of the new Impact Titles 'Forever in my Heart'.

To tie in with my heart theme, I used Prima Matte Gel Medium with the sweet Mini Heart Stencil.  Once dry, I misted over the stencilled background with Lindy's mists in silver and coral tones.

 The Industrial Hearts chipboard pieces were first coated with gesso, then whilst the gesso was still wet I coated with Stampendous aged silver embossing powder and heat set.

To add a bit of dimension, I layered a few of the Mini Cogs, which I embossed with Lindy's Kaiser Rudolf Russet.  I then swiped over a touch of Copper Inka Gold, and topped with a few pearls.

For a touch of contrast colour, I tucked in sections of Wildgrass #2 in amongst the fussy cut flowers.  The wildgrass chippies were altered by coating with gesso, then adding a coat of Little Birdie Lime Crush Tinted Metallic Paint.

 The new release Impact Titles are so versatile and there are so many to choose from!!  Keeping to my heart theme I have used the 'Forever in my Heart' impact title.

To alter the title I coated with gesso, then added a coat of Vicki Boutin Iridescent Glaze.  Once dry, I lightly swiped the edges with DecoArte Metallic Lustre in Polished Coral.

Some kind of Wonderful - Belinda Spencer

Hello Dusty Attic fans!

Belinda here with you today with my layout for the month created with lots of gorgeous chippies. 

I got my hands on the Kaisercraft Stargazer range  and couldn't wait to match it up with some fabulous Dusty Attic star chipboards.

'Some Kind of Wonderful'

I began the layout by altering the background paper with clear gesso and Autumn Nights Glimmermist that I have had in my stash for aaaages. The spray nozzle was blocked up (of course) so I just spritzed the background with water and painted it on with a brush. I had to leave it overnight to dry absolutely completely to be able to emboss some white stars using a stamp and some fine white embossing powder. I flicked some white paint over it too.

Next I painted that stunning Star Banner silver using Brushed Pewter Tim Holtz Distress Stain. I LOVE this stuff! It's so easy to use. Just dab it on. It's mess free too and there's nothing to clean up. Winning!

I love to use the Mini Captions for my titles. There are such a variety to use to suit any occasion plus because I work in an A4 format, a smaller title really works well. Here I have grabbed my favourite white paint pen and swiped it over the surface taking care not to press to hard and obliterate the words in the boxes. I let it dry completely and then gave a second coat for extra crispness.

I added some more chipboard stars again painted with the Brushed Pewter to match the Star Banner. I can't resist using a Mini Tab on my layouts too jst above my photo. This one has been painted with the white paint pen to match the title.

I added a whole bunch of round and star shaped sequins to create a lovely night sky on my layout.

Timeless Beauty - Nicole Doiron

Hello Dusty FANattics!

This is Nicole and I am back today to share with you my take on the beautiful and elegant Dusty Attic June mood board.

The June mood board holds so many stunning images with a vintage touch and classic feminine feel.

The board immediately made me think of the most important woman in my life... my mom.

For my title, I chose Timeless Beauty, using a Mini Tag and a Mini Word, one covered with a pale peach embossing powder and the other in gray tones.

It's easy to see when looking at my page that I was inspired by the many 'couture' themed images in the board, including the gorgeous lace designs. That is why I used several chipboard pieces of the same theme. Below you can see one of the Mini Wire Dress Forms.

I added 2 of the Lacey Trims and pieces of the Lace Border #1, both of which I simply covered with white embossing powder.

I also included a strip of Small Crazy Stitchings.

I incorporated some real lace on the back layer of my background, as you can see here. Behind the photo of my mom (so lovely, if I may add), I slipped a Doily #3 along with lots of fussy cut paper flowers and butterflies from a vintage Lemoncraft collection... just perfect for my mom!

Here is a closer look at the Dusty Attic chipboard found on my layout:

Crazy Stitching Small - DA1673
Doily #3 - DA0481
Lace Border #1 - DA0843
Lacey Trims - DA1345
Mini Wire Dress Form - DA0670
Mini Tags #3 - DA1814
Mini Words #2 - DA0476

Pearls - DA1546

I am hoping that with my layout I have inspired you to play along with the June challenge, if you haven't already done so. Please do share with us your creation on the Dusty FANattics Facebook page right HERE. We love to see what you create with DA chippies!

Friendship - Farrel Tailor

Hi there everyone, today I am sharing a mixed media layout I created using some gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard along with the stunning Penelope Dee range Rosalee which I recently won through a competition on Instagram.

For my background I used The Crafter's Workhsop White Gesso and Art Alchemy Sparks paint - Butterfly Spells to add a softness around my photo. I used Distress Ink Victorian Velvet to ink around the edges of my patterned papers and also used the ink and paint to splatter.

I stamped the background using Archival Ink Plum and Penelope Dee Rosalee stamp - Vintage Rose. I only used the script sections on the stamp.


I covered the Iron Garnish 3 chipboard with white gesso then heat embossed it using Ranger Rose Gold Embossing Powder and Stampendous Aged Rose Embossing Enamel. I then cut the chipboard in half so that it would wrap around the photo.

Using the Quoted Sentiments #1 Black, I cut one of the sentiment strips in half before adhering to my layout. I also stamped onto my photo cluster using the same Penelope Dee stamp set as before but this time using black archival ink.

To finish off the layout I added one of the tags from Mini Tags #5 Black and some flowers from my stash including flowers by Penelope Dee, Green Tara and Couture Creations. I inked some of flowers using the Sparks paint and Distress Ink.
