Family matters - Patricia Basson

Another Family photo done with Blue Fern Papers from the Deja Vu and Courtship Lane collections for my Dusty Attic Design Team project. Yellow and Purple are not my go-to colours, but I 'rescued' these papers from my de-stashing pile recently.













I used leftover pieces from the Arch Window set on the top and bottom of my layers and the cut apart Decorative Panel on the sides. Both these designs were embossed using Shabby Green Embossing Enamel from Stampendous.
I painted the Iron Accents with Iris Acrylic paint from Cadence.

























I painted the Title, Mini Tab and Mini foliage with Leaf Green and Antique White paint from DecoArt. I also embossed with clear embossing powder.
As decoration I used some Prills and Chunky Glitter.



I used the following from the Dusty Attic On-line store...













The ground we walk on,
 the plants and creatures, 
the clouds above constantly dissolving into new formations 
each gift of nature possessing its own radiant energy, 
bound together by cosmic harmony.

Live, Love, Laugh - Lynette Jacobs - Mood Board Inspiration

Lynette here, welcome to the blog today. I am sharing my take on the May mood board. I used a photo of my daughter-in-law and me.  Love this girl.  I used one of our local South African Brands, Penelope Dee Agatha collection for this page.


The Mood board:

Products used:
Chain rectangles

Christmas Berries #1

Mini Captions #6

Confetti Stencil

Some close ups of the page:
I matted white cardstock onto a patterned paper and stitched around the edge.  I then applied some distress ink through the Confetti Stencil to add texture to the cardstock.

I love this monochromatic colour scheme.  I heat embossed all the chipboard that was used on this page.  The chain rectangle was added as an additional layer behind my photo.

I am truly  blessed beyond measure with this lovely girl in my life.

I layered the heat embossed Christmas berries behind the fussy cut floral.  Love how it adds to the page.

You just can't go wrong with beautiful chipboard on your pages.

Imagine - Rikki G

Good morning how are you? Well the weather here in Western Australia is finally starting to turn cold which means rather than focus on my garden and trying to establish it, I can turn my focus onto the inside of the house. Yes is true, the house is done, perfect the joys of building a new home.... but now its time to focus on the finer details and the one room that I have been struggling with.

My studio !!! I love my cabinets the amount of storage is amazing, I love its big and bright but there was lack of mojo happening in it. And for me the split desk thing has taken some getting used to for sure. There was something about staring at the big white wall that didnt work for me so I turned my attention to fixing that.

So I started with the idea that the wall on above the desk should be a source of inspiration, so 5 picture rail style shelves and that created some mojo to create a canvas for my wall.








The Moons #1 – by Nuneka was the base for the canvas and the perfect size to sit in the truck dif.... yes this canvas has a number of truck parts as sub features.



I wanted the Feathers – by Nuneka to act as a dreamcatcher style element for the moon but like my last post I didnt have enough so, I just chopped it up to get more pieces to scatter around the canvas.






Bend the Beaded Tinsel to add flow to the canvas.





Add loads of chains throughout the layers.
