Elsie - Mixed media canvas for Dusty Attic DT

Hello Sweeties,

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


I primed the canvas with white gesso. When dry, I started to add several layers of paint with the help of a brayer. I also added a design with the Postcard Stencil. When happy with the result, I added some Clear Crackle Paste to the corners and borders.


I covered the Mystic Frame #1 with Gloden Metallic Flakes.


I primed the Spider Chrysanthemum, Flower Stamens, and Foliage #4 with White Gesso. Then I painted them with Ochre Liquid Acrylic paint and added Vintage Photo Distress ink to the edges. 


I added a few flowers to the composition, which I also distressed with Vintage Photo. 


To finish, I added glitter.

Blue Moth - Tag for Finnabair BA

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Finnabair blog with a tag. I just have to play with all the new waxes and believe me, they are all amazing!


To start, I primed the tag (21 x11 cm) with white heavy gesso. Then, I covered it with Carte Postale Tissue Paper. I primed the tissue paper with clear gesso and added a design with the Secret Letter Stencil and Pearl Icing Paste.
When dry, I color the background with Burnt Sienna and Nude Acrylic paints.


Before gluing all the resin elements of the composition with 3D Matte Gel, I primed them with White Gesso as well as the Metal Blooms and the Woodland Leaves.


I painted the flowers and the moth’s body with Tiger Orange and the wings with Purple.


Then, the fun begins with the waxes. For the flowers, I used Coral and Red Flames, and for the leaves, Moss Green and Acid. I colored the frame with Black gold, I just love it! and as well as the gears.


For the moth, I used Celestial and Midnight for the body, then Sea Glass and Cobalt for the wings.
I used Honey to highlight all the details.


To finish, I added shadows with Ink Black, rust accent to the gears with Carmine and finally some glitter.

The Gnome's Garden - Tag for Dusty Attic DT

Hello Sweeties,

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


I selected a medium size tag from the Tag Medley set. I've primed the tag with white gesso before adding some designs to the background. I used the River Stone stencil with the Graphite paste to add the first design like a small path. Then, I added the second design with the Flourish stencil and light modeling paste. When dry, I painted the background with black and brown for the path, and green for the forest background.
I primed all the chipboards I've selected with white gesso as well. Then, I painted them with different acrylic paints. 



The Gnome was painted with carmin, brown and black paint. I used brown and black paints to color the small Fairy Door #1 and black and white for the stone. 


For the Grass Cluster #1, I used green and purple. I added a touch of Unicorn paste to add some fun. 


I paint the head of the Toadstool Border with carmin and the grass with green paints.


When everything was to my taste, I glued everything together.

Kaleidoscope Cards for 49 and Market DT

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on 49 and Market blog with a simple set of cards created with both Color Swatch Charcoal and  Kaleidoscope collections. 


I cut the two cards in a sheet of the Essential White Cardstock. The dimensions of the cards are 20 x 15 (Portrait) cm and 10x30 cm (Landscape), then folded in half.


I chose one sheet of paper from the 6x8 Charcoal Pack, and cut two pieces of paper 9,5 x 14,5 cm. 


I selected a few Laser Cut Elements and Ephemera Bits from the Kaleidoscope collection to add on top.


I added a couple of Wild Flowers to the portrait card but kept the landscape card relatively flat.

Blue Fish - Mixed media canvas for Dusty Attic

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on Dusty Attic blog with a mixed-media panel inspired by the sea life.


First I primed my canvas board with black gesso. I added two designs. The first one with the River Stone Stencel and gold paste to represent the sea floor, and the Second with the Confetti #2 Stencil and Ice Crushed Jewel paste for the bubbles.


I also primed the chipboard with black gesso except for the Coral Elements. I covered the latter with a light modeling paste. With my spatula, I made some peaks to give some dimension to the coral.

Next, I covered all the cogs I've selected from the Jumbo Cogs #2 and Mini Cogs #2 sets with Rust Effect Pastes. 


I glued all the elements of the composition with a 3D gel except the Marine Mechanicals Fish. I selected different green, turquoise, and yellow waxes to color the Ocean Elements I've chosen.


For the Coral Mixed, I chose red and coral waxes. I highlighted all the elements with gold and silver waxes. 


I used different shades of blue, green, and turquoise to color the fish. I highlighted the details with metallic waxes. When Happy, I glued the fish.

Cigar Box for Dusty Attic DT

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.

Elisa - Layout for 49 and Market DT

Hello Sweeties,

Today I'm up on 49 and Market blog with another vintage layout. I chose again a family photo: this one of my great-grandmother, Elisa.  


I chose the Paper n°4 from the Color Swatch Teal collection. After priming it with clear gesso, I added a design with the help of a stencil and crackle paste. When the paste was dry, I added a touch of brown to give everything a vintage look. I want to give the impression of an old and torn tapestry. 


I selected some Ephemara that I added under the photo. I insert some pieces of cardboard in between to give some dimension. 


I then added some tickets between the biggest Ephemera I've chosen. 


Next, I selected some Laser-Cut Elements, mostly flowers and leaves to add between the papers, like dry flowers. 


To finish, I added a few Essentials Textblend rub-ons in Pewter.
