Good morning ,can you believe we are in August already? This time of year really marks for things in life to pick up – Book week, sport carnivals, crazy hair days and all the other school events that tend to happen from now on….. ohhh and we are building a house!!!
So its nice to get to come into the studio and play with some paper and amazing Dusty Attic Chipboard.
And as you know with a new month means a new amazing Mood board and this one has all the feels, dark, moody with a soft elegant vibe.
Have you ever had a piece of chipboard that you have been hoarding waiting for the perfect photo? The Lotus Mandela has been that for me, and as soon as I unpacked from my kit I knew instantly which photo would go with it.
So to start I sprayed all my chipboard with Dulux Grey Chalk paint.
Now its onto the waxes and blending them to add the effect I want……
Finnabar Wax – Peacock, Old Denim, Electric Violet, Royal Robes and Blue Velvet.
I started off with main colour and then to boost and catch your eye I used the Royal Robes and Blue Velvet to high light areas on the chipboard.
Now its just a case of laying out the chipboard and building up the elements. The Party Lights are a great piece but sometimes it can look like its just floating without being tied to anything…. a great way of sorting that design problem out will be to add chains and droplets to look like they are hanging off and drawing your eye downwards.
