Hi Everyone! It’s Nadia Cannizzo here with you today sharing an altered
notebook cover that I created using the just released
Dusty Attic Geometric range.
I had an absolute blast creating this,… I might add I am mighty proud of how it turned out LOL! I should give all credit of course to the simply STUNNING Dusty Attic chipboard and paints here because I really did not have to do much here to create this look.
So the notebook is actually from Dusty Attic as well. I started by applying a thick coat of Gesso to prepare the area.
I then painted the cover with Dusty Attic Navajo White paint and then followed by Dusty Attic Gingernut and Vintage Gold paints. When i applied those, I quickly sprayed them with water to blend them together and create a watercolour effect.
Once all that was dry, I simply used a new mask that I have bought, the Crafter’s Workshop Balzer Designs Life Months 12×12 stencil and some thick modelling paste from Reeves (bought at Officeworks for those interested. It is VERY good!) to create the texture and design you can see in the background.
I then used the Geometric Border, Panel and Corners to add detail to my cover.
I applied some layers of gesso on the chipboard shapes and then coloured them with Lumiere by Jacquard Light Metallic Acrylic paint in Brass.
I applied some more Dusty Attic Vinatge Gold paint, together with some more mists and sprays from 13arts and Heidi Swapp before adding some Prima Marketing embellishments.
