Adore and Card - Belinda Spencer

Hi all!

Belinda here today to share a layout plus a bonus card featuring stunning Dusty Attic products.

First up, is a layout I created for the May sketch challenge at Kraft Plus Challenges.

'Adore' Layout

I loved that the sketch allowed for lots of lovely layers which is my favourite way to scrap. So on top of layers of patterned paper, stamping, stickers and washi tape etc I added a sweet Whimsy Frame that I had painted with three coats of heavy white gesso.

I then added some stickers and die cut embellishments as well as my photo. 

I finished with some more lovely chipboard pieces that had also been given the three coats of heavy white gesso treatment.

Next up is a cute little card that I created for my daughter who turned 14 in May.

'14 Today' Card

Here I wanted to keep the chipboard in its raw state to match the natural plant theme of the card. Just a few strategically positioned mini designs can really add the perfect touch to a card. The mini designs would have to be my absolute favourite as I love to add a scattering of chipboard embellishments across my cards and layouts. They are perfect for a minimalist look too.

Days like these... Michelle Van Oudshoorn - Mood Board Inspiration

Hello lovelies

Today I am up on the Dusty Attic blog with my take on the lovely June Moodboard.

I just love the calmness and the goldenness of this mood board,  So calm and picturesque, so I have taken to using the golden features of the picture to create my layout. 

 I have started with using a 49 and Market paper from the Captured Adventure collection - using the page named Vagary. The page was primed with clear gesso, then stencilled with the moulding paste and the Dusty Attic Fishnet #2 stencil.

The page was then altered using various shades of perfect pearls, and then stamped with a script stamp. I then coloured my Dusty Attic drift wood chipboard with various shades of Luminarte pigment powders.

I have also used the same pigment powders on my flowers

I then layered the flowers and the driftwood chipboard in my cluster and adding in some laser cut shapes from the laser cut sheet from the Ethereal range.

The frame is the piece that holds the two frames of the Fleur de Lis Frame chipboard. And then finished off adding a gorgeous industrial dragonfly and then adding some prills.

Hello everyone!

I am sharing my June design team project with you. This is my daughter and son-in-law on their wedding day.  What a perfect couple, born to love each other.

Here is my layout.

The title, Heart Arrows and Word Pl@y I left raw to match the craft flowers and leaves. I think it works well on this layout.

The Flower Stamens and Wildflower were covered with white gesso and painted in red and pink acrylic paint and then dabbed with white acrylic paint.

I painted the Flutterbies with black gesso and then applied Art Alchemy Waxes in Vintage Gold and Sweet Rose and then dabbed with white and pink acrylic paint.

I covered the Foliage with white gesso and green acrylic paint.  While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled Zing MetaLlic Green embossing powder on top.

When everything was glued down I added Art Stones and splatters with diluted white gesso and black ink.

These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I used.

Marine Tag - Kasia Salmanowicz - Mood Board inspiration


My today’s project is working with a  Dusty Attic moodboard for June. 
This time my favorite colors were on it. For this marine atmosphere, which I also like very much.

I decided that I would decorate a wooden house, adding to it apart the wonderful chipboard, also natural elements. I used ordinary dry sticks and shells here. In addition, several mini anchors from HDF material. There is also a piece of

jute, which in this project looks like a fishing net pulled out of the depths…

The whole

composition is lightly colored with brown and brightened witch white acrylic paint. What do you think, do you like such a climate?

Have a nice
