Dusty Attic - July Mood Board

Hello my friends , a very warm welcome to my blog

Today I am sharing my take on the
DUSTY ATTIC MOOD BOARD
 for July

I just love these beautiful autumn colors .
it is Winter here in Australia at the moment 
so I loved playing with these 
light colors to brighten up the dull, overcast  days of Winter.


I chose to allow the light green, pale blue to dominate.
The dark brown features at the top and bottom section, 
with tiny splashes of the pale fawn on the metal embellie . 



LOVE THAT 

HANDY TIP
some of the chippies are trimmed
e.g. the film strip ..
 I have only used the edges of the strips here
painted and layered on my embellie cluster .

Dusty Attic Materials used
Crackle Paint DA 0900
Dusty in Colour /Navajo White  DA 0903

View finder DA 1081
Mini Branches #2 DA 1121

Circle Frame set : DA 0490
Ornamental Trim set :DA 1347


the ornamental trim which is tucked under the right 
side of the pic, has been trimmed 
before adhering to my LO . 

 blooms, beads, metal, paint , chippies and stitching .


a mix of chippies, metal, fabric, and paint 
I adore adding crackle paint to metal embellies and the DA chippies, 
creating a rich finish.


 thanks so much for popping by and taking a look 
at my work 
I hope you are inspired to have a play with these colors 
and some yummy chipboard pieces .
happy scrapping until next time

TEXTURED TAG  
 I adore the softness of the pearly white background
with the richness of the green and deeper pink .
I created some texture with fibre paste and a stencil .  
 I cut out and layered the green and pink butterflies , 
creating a cluster with the bird cage, butterflies, metal element , brads and flair.
the metal element is painted with white Gesso and secured with a glossy ceramic brad. 


LAYERED

Birthday Easel Card

Welcome to my blog and thanks so much for dropping by .
I have been having fun lately creating cards for friends 
I find Cards are so much quicker and easier than LO's
and they are a great way of using small leftover pieces from projects. 
I am sharing a card I made recently for a friend 

'CELEBRATE '
There is something I really love about easel style cards 
Not sure what it is .. I just love making them .
The Texture is created by stacking various 
nestabilities diecuts in co-ordinating Prima papers.
I topped this stack with a fabric bloom.
thanks for popping by my blog and taking the time to leave me some love 
happy happy scrapping 
big big hugz until next time
