A captured Moment - Anat Weksler - Mood board inspiration

Hello crafty friends!
A new month and a new Fabolous Moodboard  challenge, for February, at Dusty Attic - and these absolutely, gorgeous colours!

Seeing it I knew exactly what I was going to create! A canvas with a picture of my Princess (my daughter) beside a fire holding a hot burned piece of branch, during a Jewish Holiday called "Lag Baomer" in which we light fires for celebrating.

On the background I used  white crackle paste through the Lace stencil I absolutley inlove with and use every where: 

After dry and cracked I colored the canvas with the Old Walls Finnabair Fantasy Texture paste Set .
The gorgeous chipboards I've used look exactly like flames and I loved the look they added to my canvas. I colored all chipboards with Lindy's Sprays: Whale Watch Blue, Marigold Yellow Orange and Glory of the seas gold.

I also added a 7dots studio  button with  matching words and colors.

Hope I've inspired you to join the challenge!

Thanks for Stopping by!

Live Beautifully - Tanya Cloete - Altered Art


Live Beautifully

Hello dear Dusty FANattics!
Happy to share with you my Dusty Attic project this month 
featuring the beautiful Graphic 45 A Ladies Diary collection
 teamed up with some gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard.

Today I am sharing my love for off the page, a typewriter
 (credit to Tara's Craft Studio template). Originally the box pieces 
can be cut from poster/foam board but I had mine laser cut from wood
and then I just adhered the pattern pieces to them (these were cut from
 my Silhouette). Most of the chipboard pieces used I have heat embossed 
with different colours and the rest I altered using some Finnabair waxes.
I then adorned the piece with some pretty gold rhinestones, metal 
 embellishments, die cut pieces and beautiful Prima flowers.

  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Papercrafting!

Leave Footprints - Rachelle Sigurdson

Hello, today I would like to share with you a LO I did using Dusty Attic's beautiful Beach inspired range.

 Here are some close ups......

I primed the chipboard with white or clear gesso, then applied clear crackle onto some areas. I applied Texture paste behind the Sand Dollars. I let the crackle & paste dry then played with color....

For the color I rubbed on brown using a ink pad. For the blues I painted the pieces with the dreamweaver paste & rubbed on the chalk.....

Layering of embellishments


I used the corrugated paper (that I painted with the white gesso & ) as the frame of the photo...

Here are a few more closeups.....
