Memories Documented - Karan Gerber

 Hi Creative friends 

I am making a few changes in my Design Team commitments heading into 2023, another one of those changes I am making is with Dusty Attic. 

I have decided its time for me to say farewell, so I am sharing my last project with you for Dusty Attic. 

For my final project share i am working with the Mood Board Challenge for December. This is designed on a 8x8 Canvas, 

I decided to use papers from Graphic 45 Warm Wishes. 

 I used florals from Graphic 45 and a couple from 49 and market. 
I fussy cut out  those poinsettias from one of the papers in the Warm Wishes Collection. 

I used the Feathers by Nuneka and colored them with prima Red Wine I also colored the Industrial clusters the same and splatter with gold paint. The industrial cluster is peeking through the shutter frame there. 

The cog Border #3 is peeking out from under the shutter frame in this image, I cut off the swirl from the  feather and tucked in in among the flowers. 

The title is from the mini word captions and I just painted that with gold paint. 

Thank you to Dusty Attic for having me the past two years. 

Products Used:

Industrial Cluster #6

Cog Border #3

Nuneka Feathers

Mini Captions 3

Thank you for following me along for the past two  years while I created with Dusty Attic,

Merry Christmas - Pascale B - Mood Board Inspiration

Hello Sweeties,

Today, I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with another Xmas home decor. I used the amazing December color combo.

Here is the beautiful December color combo

I colored a large piece of watercolor paper with different inks in burgundy, pale pink and black. I used this paper to cover a MDF star that I have brought a few year ago in a dollar store and completely forget about it. It was perfect for the project I had in mind. 

Next I added a design with a stencil and modeling paste. I sprinkled with a coral embossing powder while the paste was still wait and heat embossed. I replaced the stencil at the same places and entended the pattern with a brass wax. 

As usual, I primed all the chipboard with white gesso before I colored them. I embossed the Vintage Frame #4 with a copper EP. I embossed the Christmas Berries #1 with a burgundy EP and the berries of the Mistletoe #2 with the coral EP I've used previously. 

I painted the Foliage #11 and the Pine Sprig  #2 with black liquid acrylic, then I added the brass wax. For the Foliage #27 and Mistletoe #2, I used a brown liquid acrylic. I glued all my elements with 3D gel and I added a few flowers and a small bird.

To finish, I added glitter.
