Forever - Jacqueline Moore - June Mood Board

Would you like to win a $100 Dusty Attic gift voucher to the WEBSITE You have until the end of the month to add your link to the right hand sidebar.
This is some inspiration from our DT memeber
Hi Dusty Attic fans!!! It's Jacqueline here today to share with you a quick canvas I made based on this month's moodboard. When I first saw the colors I was like oh no I can't use those together. While they looked stunning in the picture, red is just not me. The more I looked at the picture though and thought about how pretty the red and green looked together, the more I wanted to try it.


 Here is what I came up with:


I wanted the hearts to be the feature of the canvas, so I have simply painted them white with a couple of coats of Gesso so that they really stand out against the reds and greens.

Some details:

For my title I have taken the word 'Forever' from the Word Pack 19. I have simple colored it with black ink, then used a white gel pen to outline the letters. 

I have layered the middle sized Lacey Heart Frame above a cluster of flowers, then placed a die-cut flower and a few other flowers on top, before adding the smallest Lacey Heart Frame and my title on top.


 I have taken 2 of theses leafy stems from Foliage #2 and placed one on either side of the canvas. I have used Gel Medium to attach some Glass microspheres from 13 Arts, then painted them both with Metallic green paint.

I finished off by adding a few hearts from the Mini Hearts #2 pack, with I have covered in Chunky Gold Glitter.

That's all from me today. 
I hope you have enjoyed my post!! I will be back again soon with more to share.

Fabulous - Lizzy Hill (Tutorial)

Those of you who know me will know that flowers aren't my 'thing'. I find them hard to use at the best of times.
You will also know I ADORE a challenge. Even a self imposed one.
I was blessed to receive a good dose of flowers in my DA kit.
So, I figured it would be fun to see if I could use them. And I think I've done OK.
 A couple of the cards I made you can see HERE.
This is the third of the batch, which I saved so I could do a step by step.
So here we go!
I gessoed over some white card stock, then added a stencil.
The seed beads stick well to wet molding paste!
I'm using the card on the right below:
Next I added some DUSTY ATTIC RAISIN  & DENIM PAINTS, watered down, with a sponge brush:
You can see I've dabbed off with a bit of paper towel, if the colour was too strong.
I've also used a water mister to keep my paper dampish, so the paint didn't dry too quickly.
Then using my finger, I added some CASHMERE into the mix, to lighten it all up:

I decided to cover my background with Gel Medium - to make sure the seed beads stayed in place.
Inspiration struck & I added some glitter at this stage!
While this was drying, I fussied up my Elegant Swirls #3 & #13 with gesso, then some DA paint:
Then added these & some DA flowers [Smokey Blue, Vintage Rose & Evening Blush]:
My sentiment was stamped, fussy cut, then dabbed with some of the left over paint.
 Once this was attached, I went over all the flowers with some gesso on a sponge.
Et voila! The bird cages can be found HERE.
 I've also added a few sequins:

 The whole card:
Hope this makes you itchy to get scrapping!
Cheers ~ Lizzy
