The best Things by Patricia Basson
January Inspiration Board

Hello dear Blog Friends...

Today I bring you my page using the gorgeous Inspiration Board designed by our own Natasha Naranjo Aguirre...It is a gorgeous image filled with warm, rich colours and inspirational words. It is so easy to take part in our monthly challenge...complete a project using Dusty Attic chipboard pieces and at least three of the colours, link your project to the list on the right side of the Dusty Attic blog, and stand a chance to win a &100 gift voucher to redeem in our shop!!! And for the month of January there is a 20% of discount if you use the promotional code happy2015.


I have scrapped this photo that I took a few years ago before...but it suited the challenge perfectly. I knew I wanted to use and layer many chipboard pieces, therefore I kept the paper layers minimal. I did how ever use many different media's on the paper and the chipboard's themselves.

The two Butterflies were Gesso'd and heat embossed with two colours of embossing powders.

The vine was gesso'd and some glass glitter added at the end of the leaves for texture. After drying I painted it with a spray mist and added some black art sugar to it.

The Doilys were painted with Cornflower Blue Archival Ink and randomly embossed with Aged Teal Embossing Enamel. The Flower Buds were painted black and also randomly embossed with Aged Black Embossing Enamel.

I used the following pieces on my page

Mini Doily Set

Between the Sheets:


Like water which can clearly mirror 
the sky and the trees only so long
 as its surface is undisturbed, 
the mind can only reflect
 the true image of the Self when it is tranquil
 and wholly relaxed.
Indra Devi
