A very warm welcome to the home of Dusty Attic.
It is Tina O here with you today. I have my Design Team project for June......a little late but nevertheless I got here.
My inspiration for my project this month is my gorgeous girl, Ashlea. As always when I am rummaging through my photos I happen upon one that I may have overlooked or was just simply keeping for that special project. This was a photo taken down at Scarborough last year in the school holidays.
I started off with a simple piece of 12 x 12 inch heavy chipboard to make this layout my own. I wanted to give my layout a whitewash look, so I coated the board with gesso and then wiped off the excess. I did this a couple of times to get the desired effect.
Once my background whitewash was dried I then did some dry brush painting I guess you could call it. I diluted down both the Oceania and Gingernut Dusty In Colour acrylic paints and then wiped the excess off my paintbrush. I used the photo as a guide to show where the sky meets the water.
All my gorgeous Dusty Attic pieces were primed with gesso firstly. The new release #5 Frame was treated firstly with a generous coating of Dusty Attic Texture Paste and left to dry. When it was completely dried I rubbed over the entire frame with some Colour Blast Colour Paste (Leather) and wiped the excess off with a baby wipe.
And here you can see the little Sea Horse at the right. This was taken from the Dusty Attic Mini Shells pack....it is just too cute!
I love to used bits and pieces that I find on the beaches when we are there. Last time we (my girls and I love to beach-comb), were fortunate enough to have found some awesome sea sponges which I have used in my flower cluster along with some gorgeous little and big shells found to add to the page.
Sitting behind the Compass Rose you can see a circle. These chippies were the centres of the Bubbles chipboards. I used 4 or 5 of these scattered around the page in differing sizes. They were covered with Dusty Attic Texture Paste and Mica Powder (Rust).
Well that is all from me today. Don't forget to keep scrolling if you are looking for a complete materials list of this project or maybe just a Dusty piece that you are interested in. They are below and can be purchased direct from the Dusty Attic.
Until next time........happy scrapping.
