Capture the Adventure with Dusty Attic Chippies, Blooms & Paints! – with Gabrielle Pollacco

I’ve been wanting scrap this cute photo of my little Great-niece Kiera for while now….and I just knew I wanted to use that awesome fishnet chippie from Dusty Attic Designs….actually I used a whole lotta the Dusty Attic for this one.  I used the Grass Clusters #1, Grass Clusters #2, Ornate Corner, Shells, Mini Bird Houses, Fishnet Panel, Birds a Field, Corrugated Card, plus a number of the New Dusty In Color Paints (Navajo white, Bisque, Meadow Green, Hot Chocolate and the New Mixed Media Crackle finish….AND some of their new Mini-roses!! 
I painted all the pieces white to start with…then used a variety of inks and paints to lightly color the chippies.  The papers are a mix of the gorgeous Maja Design papers from their Vintage Summer Basics collection and their Vintage Spring Basics collection. 
The blue and white blooms I used here are from a bargain bin at Michaels, and I just added leaves from Dusty Attic to finish up the bloom clusters…..I love these for the perfect finish for a cluster. 
I painted the little bird house with Navajo White, inked with some brown chalk ink and added a coat of the DA Crackle medium.  For the shell I mixed a little sand into some Gesso to add a little texture to the shell.  I added a little sea glass to finish the beach look. 
For the corner chippie I did a little script stamping and again added the Dusty Attic Crackle medium on top of it.  Here’s a full list of the goodies I used to make up this page:
