Dusty Attic

Mixed Media Layout


Hello dear Dusty FANattics!

Happy to share with you my Dusty Attic

 project this month a Mixed Media Layout.

I have created this Layout featuring lots of fabulous Dusty Attic chipboard. 

I used the stunning Graphic 45 Steampunk Debutante collection. I prepped 

my page with clear gesso and added lots of texture with a stencil and

 texture paste. I also added some art stones and gauze. I coloured the

 background with Prima concentrated watercolors and Finnabair Liquid

 Acrylic Paints. I heat embossed some of the chipboard pieces and title and 

the other chipboard pieces have been painted with Finnabair metallique paints.

Other Elements used: Clear Gesso, Clear Crackle, Prima Metallique-Lavender & Ice Queen, Liquid Pearls, Prills...Here are a few close ups.....
I primed the chipboard pieces with clear gesso then applied clear crackle paint on to some areas. Once the crackle dried I played with the 2 colors above to give the chipboard 2 tones. I used liquid pearls on the birdcage & the Marrakesh Trellis & Prills on the Wildflowers....

For the background I used Irrevocable Beauty-Efflorescent. I cut out the center & glued lace into the layers. ...

I framed the photo with the Squiggly Frame & framed the Marrakesh Trellis with the Fancy Frame #7 & glued that piece under the photo....In the clusters I used DA Chipboard, 49 and Market flowers & wishing Bubbles. The flowers were altered with dry brushing on white gesso & changing the centers with using Prills or Sequins....Here are a few more close ups.....

Thnk you so much for taking the time to look....Rachelle

Paw Prints on my Heart - Anat Weksler -Mood Board Inspiration

Hello crafty friends!
Today I'm sharing with you my take on the Beautiful and Tender February moodboard.

As soon as I started thinking about the project I knew I wanted to create something using  my Daughter's picture with Juice our Cat.

I started by adding Black sand Paste on my MDF hoop, next I've attached a Lace Fabric at the back of the hoop and adhered , on the fronte, part of the Geometric Panel, together with some Finnabair Art Pebbles and  Mechanicals Numbers. I covered everything with Black gesso.

Next step was to brush evrything with Finnabairs new Matte Waxes - Patina Blue, Old White and rub here and there a bit of Brushed Iron Metalique Wax.

The Paw Prints on My Heart chipboard I covered with the Matte Wax Patina Blue and the  Paw Prints  chipboards with Rusty Red Matte wax.

To color the amazing Entangled Heart I sprayed Lindy's Poinssetia Red Gold and than brushed a bit of Old White Matte Wax. The gorgeous effect of two tones happens due to the lazer design  on top of the chipboard - isn't it perfect?!

Finnaly I rubed Brushe Iron Metalique Wax on the  Mystic Flourish.

To create the composition I added lace and some metal elemnts.

Hope I inspired you to create a project following our mood board  to join us!

Thanks for stopping by!
