Never too late to Start - Juliya Tirskaya

Hello dear friends!
Today i'm with a new project -Mixed Media Canvas "Old Clock"

I have long wanted to make myself a canvas with a clock. And now the dream has come true with the amazing Dusty Attic chipboard and stensil!

For the background, I took a Metal Plates Stensil.
What a cool imitation is obtained with this stencil !!!

Chipboard I Painted Rust Effect Paste Finnabair, and added some wax.

Cherish - Belinda Spencer - Mood Board Inspiration


It's Belinda here today with my layout based on the May Mood Board.


Such a lovely combination of soft colours in the mood board this month that matched perfectly my photo of my kids in our hay shed taken many years ago.

I mixed up a combination of Lavender Blush Dusty In Bloom paint with a dash of Cranberry, diluted it with water and added a wash to my background . I flicked some of the colour over the page too. Once completely dry, I layered on a strip of perforated tape and a twine circle.

I painted all of my chipboard with about three coats of heavy white gesso for a lovely crisp finish. This is my most favourite finish for my chipboard as I like the stark contrast of the fresh white against whatever colours I might be using on my layout.

I stapled my frame onto my background and then added layers of patterned papers and my photo using 3D foam. This gives me enough lift to be able to slip in the flowers and other pieces of chipboard in and around the central focus. I only had a couple of Mini Tabs left in my pack and the words on them didn't match my photo so I simply used the reverse of the tab and added my own sticker quote.

I finished with an awesome Tribal Arrow (LOVE these so much!) and some Geo Tags. The Geo Tags are one of my favourite go to chippies for boy layouts.

The Dusty Attic products used:

DA0805 Dusty In Bloom Bridal Veil
DA0807 Dusty In Bloom Blue Bonnet

Thanks for stopping by the blog today. I do hope you find some time to play along with this super pretty mood board.

Love - Kasia Salmanowicz - Mood Board Inspiration

Hello everyone!

Today I'd like to show you my new project created for Dusty Attic;)) All in blue - layout with beautiful photo <3 <3 

As always, I used here a lot of Dusty Attic elements, which you can find in the links below. All of them I covered with white acrylic paint, then I used blue impasto paint and liquid acrylic paint. When you protected the chipboard, you can paint it anyway.

To this I added lace, paper flowers, metal embelishments and hdf birds. The whole project was brightened with whie gesso and splashed and the end. This is work inspired May mood board. 

Mood board:
Have a nice day,

Dusty Attic 

Kaleidoscope Layout


Hello dear Dusty FANattics!
Happy to share with you my Dusty Attic  project this month, a colourful Layout
  featuring the stunning Graphic 45 Kaleidoscope 
 Collection and some gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard.

I have created this bright and colourful layout on a watercolor paper background.

 I have layered strips of the pattern sheets from the Graphic 45 Kaleidoscope

 collection on the one side of my watercolour paper. I have layered my photo 

(via Pinterest) onto lots of die-cut shapes. I have added some colour to my 

background on the one side with a stencil and some Graphic 45 decades inks. 

Some chipboard pieces have been painted with Finnabair's metallique paints

and I coloured some of the chipboard titles with the decades inks. The title 

'beautiful' and lamp posts have been heat embossed in white. I have adorned

 my photo cluster with some of the collections stickers, die-cut butterflies 

and leaves,  beautiful Prima flowers, rhinestones and sequins.

  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Papercrafting!
