Hello, today I am here to share with you 2 LO’s I did using Dusty Attic’s Challenge for November….
Here is the STUNNING Sketch/Mood Board, in fact I loved it so much I did 2 takes on this months challenge. On the first LO, I used the Mood Board part, took it from the lower right corner….
The Challenge has a amazing prize of a $100 Dusty Attic Gift Voucher to the Dusty Attic Website for the winner. To enter all you need to do, is use the Mood Board for Inspiration, you can interpret it anyway you like. The only requirement is that Dusty Attic chipboard is used in your creation. Once completed simply add your link to the right side of the bar of the Dusty Attic Blog…

Here are some close ups….
I primed all of the chipboard & corrugated paper with black gesso, then applied clear crackle on to some of the chipboard pieces….
I also primed the paper with clear gesso, then applied crackle onto the numbers…
I then painted the chipboard pieces & corrugated paper with the iridescent copper & burnt umber, or the the Caribbean Mist for the blue color…
I altered these flowers with painting them with the TA-slate, then painted over top the slate with the Caribbean Mist….
I also altered the mudslide flowers with the Burnt Umber & Prills as the flower centers….
Here are a few more close ups….
I had a hard taking photos of this LO, they came out faded out, this is closer to the real color…
