Cigar Box - Pascale B Scrap - Mixed Media

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a box.

I glued all the elements to build the box. When done, I primed it with two layers of white gesso. I added a design with the Ledger stencil and light modeling paste to the top and the sides.

I selected different gears in size and shape and used a 3D gel to glue them to the box. When the gel was dry, I primed all the gears and the Rose leaves from the Alice collection with white gesso. 

When the gesso was completely dry, I added brown paint with a lot of water to keep it neutral. Then I added a few flowers which I also painted.

To finish the composition, I just added metallic waxes.

Anne-Marie layout by Pascale B Scrap

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a vintage layout with a photo of one of my great aunts.

To begin, I primed the background with Clear Gesso. Next, I added a design with Floral #2 Stencil and Pearl Icing paste. When the paste was dry, I added some brown and black Distress inks to make the design pop up. 

I covered the Ornat Circle #2 with embossing powder that I was careful not to melt down completely to obtain a non-even surface. 

I primed all the chipboards I have selected with white gesso. Then I simply distressed the edges with black and brown inks. 

I attached a few ephemera under the photo, and then I made a cluster with Spring Bloom #3, Wildflower #4, Foliage #25, and a couple Poppy Heads. I added a few white flowers to the composition which  I altered with Distress inks as they were too white. 

I also included a Pocket Watch to remind the one concealed in her pocket. In the photo, we can definitely make out the chain. 

To finish, I splattered the background with glitter mixed with gel medium and water.

Ballerina Dreams - MDF Lantern - Kerstin Filou


  Hello everyone!

 Magical and dreamy, with snowflakes gently dancing in the sky, this lantern inspired me to create a snowy winter forest scene.



I primed the object with white acrylic paint and then highlighted it with brown acrylic paint using the dry brush technique. In the centre, I hung a transparent acrylic glass ornament, a little ballerina (before it was a christmas tree ornament).

I added a white cuddly skirt with tulle and small punched-out snowflakes to the ballerina. 

At the bottom of the lantern, there is an LED bottle bottom light, and above it, a big snowflake that has been glittered blue in some places. 

When the light is switched on, it looks like the snowflake is dancing over a frozen lake.

Hamsa by Anat Weksler

  Hello lovelies!

It's me again - Anat, with another Hamsa - (hand of Fatima) using fabulous industrial Chippies by Dusty Attic.

I made so many Hamsas, in differents styles and sizes. This one is an Industrial Hamsa holding my favorites Chipboards and metal elements. 

The base of the Hamsa had texture added to it and painted with Metalique paints. 

I've colored the chippies with differents Rust pastes and  Metalique waxes.

Here are the chipboards I have used here:
