Fairy Box "Delight" - Tanya Cloete

Altered Fairy Box 


Hello dear Dusty FANattics!
Happy to share with you my Dusty Attic   project this month, an Altered Fairy Box featuring some of my favorite Dusty Attic chipboard.

I have painted this small wooden box, metal butterfly embellishments and the foundations box feet with black gesso and then altered it with 

some of Finnabair's beautiful sparks paints. I added stamp images to

 the box and some texture with a stencil and white crackle texture paste.  

I then randomly added some paint splatters. The chipboard pieces 

have been painted with a coat of black gesso and then altered

 with some Finnabair waxes. The chipboard title and hinges have

 been heat embossed. The fairies have been lightly painted with

 opal magic paint and then sprinkled with some glitter. I then 

adorned the piece with some pretty metal knobs and chain, 

string, resins, rhinestones, and gorgeous Prima flowers.

  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Papercrafting!

Find beauty in the Everday - Alasksandra Mihelic - Mood Board Inspiration

Hello dears,

I'm inspiring today on beautiful Dusty Attic blog again. Since my last project for you with the gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboards was my "off the page" blossoming Door Entrance with a bycicle, I decided to prepare a layout for a Moodboard project. 

This month's Moodboard has some interesting colors that are usually not my choice, so I was stepping a bit out of my comfort zone here. I hope you'll like it.

I used several Dusty Attic chipboards that you can purchase in their online store:

I hope you liked my today's inspiration and that it brings you maybe some ideas for this month's Moodboard. I can't wait to see your creations!

Thank you for stopping by. Enjoy your day and see you next time.
Hugs, Aleksandra

Here are some close ups.....

For the blue I first inked the pieces with the denim ink, then painted the piece with the whale watch blue.....I also altered the shadow flowers with the whale watch blue.....

For the darker pieces I primed them with black gesso, then painted some of the pieces with the clear crackle paint. Once the crackle dried I painted the pieces with either the Burnt Umber or the iridescent gold, then rubbed in  the old silver wax to tone down the colors.....Here are a few more close ups.....

Thank you so much for taking the time to look......Rachelle
