#Happydays - Nicole Doiron

Hello all Dusty FANattics!!!

I am sharing with you today this very fun and shabby chic page.

I kept this layout fairly simple and didn't use too much mixed media.
Anyone who is familiar with my work could say that I have
two scrappy personalities... one is very simple chabby shic old style and 
the other elegant, romantic and more mixed media based.  
This one comes from simple scrappy Nicole.

On my background, I used the Butterflight stencil along with Dusty in Colour paint.
My chipboard was mostly just coloured with markers for a clean bare look
and I added dabs of paint on the butterflies.

This is my niece at Butterfly World, so of course I had to use
some lovely chipboard butterflies from Dusty Attic.

My very first creative step towards this layout were picking out
these gorgeous Evening Blush flowers.  I loved the colour and knew
that I wanted to make a page with them so I went in my stash in search
of papers, embellishments and photos... and voila!

I absolutely love the Page Pebbles!

Now let's take a look at all the fabulous Dusty Attic products used.

Footprints - Valerie Ouellet

Hi everyone! 
Today, I decided to use one of my last photo from the beach. I'm so sad, summer is gone.....

I used a big chipboard that I love!! 


 I used two colors of embossing powders to create ombre effect. I started by embossing white powder. Then, I embossed a small section in gray.

I added a beautiful little black word of the set "Wordplay #7. The black chipboards are so simple to use and add a nice touch to our creations.

Precious - Nicole Doiron (Challenge Inspiration)

Hello to all Dusty Attic lovers!

It's Nicole Doiron back with you today to share one of my creations
featuring Dusty Attic chipboard and more 
and inspired by the gorgeous and elegant October mood board!

Here is the October mood board that is sure to inspire you!

I love the  neutral colors of the images and so I decided to go neutral
too with my page, adding a bit of gold and copper for an added antique feel.

The title 'Previous' seemed to go well with my theme.
I painted it black, then dabbed it with a little bit of white,
and then covered some of the white with metallic copper paint.

On my background, I added some texture with modeling paste and the Sparkle stencil.

I used a piece from the Name Plates #5 Set, painting it 
with a mixture of Dusty in Colour Gingernut and Vintage Gold, 
then finishing with a coat of Clear Crackle Varnish.

You have surely seen all the new black chipboard that Dusty Attic now offers.
This piece below is part of one of my favorite sets called Word Tags #2.
Underneath it is an Ornate Corner #2 that I cut in 2 to use here and under my title.

I really wanted a beautiful Victorian-style photo to use on this page,
and I had none of my own (my ancesters weren't much into photography - hehe)
so I found this classic image of a beautiful young lady on the Internet.
Peaking from behind the photos are 3 mini ATC Frames #3.

I hope you like my take on this fabulous challenge and here's to hoping 
that you will play along!  You could win a huge Dusty Attic stash of your own!

Snapshot - Patricia Basson

How are you all doing Blog Friends....Hope to find you well and creating away?
For my Dusty Attic Blog Project this month I once again used some Selfie photos of myself!!! I know...we do not scrap ourselves often enough and am trying to get over my low self image and just Scrap away, easy enough to do with these amazing Dusty chippies...The paper I used are old, very old, stash...They are Spring Garden #2 from Craft and You Design. The flowers are from Little Birdie.

I used the following frames, Ornate Frame #5 and Decorative Frame #1. Sadly the photos don't do justice to the effect the Lindy's Spray has on the frames! After some gesso I first painted them with Frenchy's Pink Pouf and Pink Ladies Pink  Flat Magicals.  Once dry I painted with Cocklebells Coral Starburst Spray. 

Adding a few hearts from the Heart Attack Border #2 in the frame gives an interesting effect.

How cute is the round black Word Tag that fits snugly in the smallest frame? I also used some Mini Word Tabs, and Small Latice pieces that I painted with black Gesso as fillers between my layers and flowers.

I also used the Leaves #3 stencil with glue and Mega Flakes from Indigo Blu ... just love the shiny details it added to the page!

Please make sure to visit the Dusty Attic on-line shop for these and much more...

Start by doing what's necessary,
 then do what's possible,
 and suddenly you are 
doing the impossible.

Love - Believe - Dream - Canvas by Sanderijn de Bruin

Hi everybody!

It's Sanderijn here to present you my mixed media canvas

Don't you love those colors on a white background? 

I started with white gesso on the canvas, and when it was dry I added the mandala stencil pattern and the Threaded Beads stencil with modelling paste.

When it was dry I added a second layer of white gesso.
Meanwhile I painted the Swirl Vine also with white gesso and glued it on the canvas.

I used Lindy's Stamp gang sprays to give the canvas blue, teal and purple colors.
I dripped the colors on the canvas and used a water spray bottle to let the inks move around. Some tissue paper here and there to remove some of the ink.

Next step, another layer of white gesso, dabbering gently with a distress ink tool.
As a finishing touch I used gold wax to give the texture on the canvas a little bit more warmth and dimension...

Love, Sanderijn
