'Footprints' Layout by DT Karen Shady

Hi and welcome to the Dusty Attic blog. Its Karen here to share with you a layout of my youngest son, Harry. The photo was taken on a recent holiday to the Grampians national park.

The Dusty attic grasses suit my photo perfectly. I used a very simple stippling technique to decorate them. I first painted both pieces using Dusty in colour acrylic paint in Pesto, then, mixed a little Alabaster to some Pesto, to make a very light green. Then simply stippled that onto the pieces, using a hard bristled paint brush.

I had a few leftover pieces of the Chicken wire panel, which I tucked in and around my layout to finish it off.
Products used:
