Juliette Frame - Kasia Salmanowicz - Mood Board Inspiration

Hello crafty people!

This time I have for you a pastel project with new chipboard from Dusty Attic. I decorated a simple, plastic frame inspired by the moodboard for August. There is a pink, blue and a bit of brown so I worked very well with it.

At the beginning I secured the frame with white gesso. I did the same with all decorative elements that were in this composition. I glued everything with a heavy body gel. I used three shades of acrylic paints that I mixed with water. As always, I whitened the entire project after drying.

Finally, I splashed the frame with the paints that were used. I gently outlined the contours of the black gesso and added small stamps in several places.

Masterpiece - Tanya Cloete

Dusty Attic
Mixed Media Cassette



Hello dear Dusty FANattics!
Happy to share with you my Dusty Attic
 project this month, Mixed Media Cassette Tapes
featuring lots of gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard.

 I layered these Cassette Tapes with lots of Dusty Attic chipboard,
 Prima resin pieces and metal embellishments. I altered this piece
 with my favourite Finnabair mediums. I painted all the pieces individually 
with Impasto paint in Dark Chocolate and then layered them all 
onto the cassette tapes and gave it another coat of the Impasto paint. 
I then added colour to the piece with different metallique waxes 
making sure I blended the colours as I went along.

A Year to Remember - Rosalie Duke-Stanley - Mood Board Inspiration

Beautiful soft tropical colours for this months mood board. 

I thought that it was perfect for some of my photos when I was in Bali in 2016 with a group of scrapbookers on a Bali retreat Scrapbooking trip. And guess who was the guest designer and teacher - yes the wonderful Jen Hedgers from Dusty Attic. 

I prepared the background paper with clear gesso and randomly stencilled the back ground with white modelling paste. Once dry, use a variety of Lindy Stamp Gang Magicals to add colour that represents the colours in the mood board. 

I coloured the chip board with a variety of Tim Holtz Distress Oxides and LSG Magicals. when dry, start layering the pieces starting with the frames. Tip - I used a rular to make sure the frames were straight. 

I fussy cut pieces from the Mintay Paper range - Wanderlust which was the right colour palette for the page and concept - travel. Finish with words that I cut to size.

Evening by the Sea - Kerstin Filou - Mood Board inspiration

Hello creative friends!

A new moodboard which reminds me on beautiful sunset's by the sea.

'Evening by the Sea' 
I use two photo's from the Baltic sea, where I love to spend our holidays.
There are no palm trees but a beautiful sandy beach where you can walk with your dog for hours.
This is true recreation and pure relaxation for us.

Unfortunately we can't go there every year and so I like to remember this time while doing handicrafts. This is one of the reasons why I love scrapbooking so much.
The use of Dusty Attic chipboards make the projects more vivid and interesting.

You can find a lot of natural style elements under Beach, Fishing, Nautical and Tropical.
