Life your dream – Cathy Cafun

Hi Dusty Attic Crafters,
Cathy here today sharing my project for the month created with gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard and stencil designs.




“Live Your Dreams”


I was going through all the new Dusty Attic chippie designs and have to say that I am loving the new Mini Tabs.  I was drawn to the Day Dreamer tab from the Mini Tabs #3 and was inspired to create this Shabby Chic/Romantic layout.




To create my background I first coated with Clear Gesso, then applied Tim Holtz Faded Jeans Distress Oxide.  Once dry, I used the Damask #2 Stencil Design with Modeling Paste and finally stamped over my background with Kaisercraft script stamp in a soft grey ink.

To add depth to my layers I cut apart the Floral Corners and Corner Swirl #1 chipboard pieces which I layered with flowers and lace.






The chipboard pieces were altered by coating with gesso, then whilst wet adding embossing powder and heat setting.  I highlighted the embossing with Metallic Pastes in Cornflower Blue and Jade, then added Prills to my flower centres.

The Mini Words #1 chippies were used to create my title and were altered with Lindys Pearl embossing powder, then coating with Champagne Ice Metallic Lustre.

How fabulous are the new Mini Tabs!!  I altered the day dreamer tab by coating with ink, then highlighting the edges with Metallic Pastes in Cornflower Blue and Champagne Ice.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
