Moroccan Theme by Karen Shady

Hi there Dusty friends. Karen here today, to share with you my take on the April ATC challenge. The MOROCCAN theme really pushed me to my creative limits. But, then I remembered the gorgeous new ATC frames, and then I was away.
I inked the ATC frame using metailc gold ink, then randomly added a little Rub n buff, and finished it off with a few adhesive pearls and rhinestones.
I painted the Mini Morrocan lamp in Soot Dusty in colour paint, and drew the gold highlights with a metalic gold permanent texta, after the paint was dry. I finished off by filling inside the frame with Demensional magic, to add some shine to my ATC.


Thanks so much for calling in,

This months ATC Theme for Dusty Attic is Moroccan, after researching for ideas for this theme I noticed these gorgeous rich colour schemes. Not colours I usually work with but I loved getting out of my comfort zone on this one, I love the end result!

 To paint the vase I painted with a cobolt blue paint, then painted the white pattern across the pot, the glued chain along the top and bottom.


To create the frame border I cut it from the cottage window with vine.
