A Moment Captured and We must have Adventures – Cathy Cafun – April Mood Board Inspiration

TWO GORGEOUS LAYOUTS BY CATHY ARE SHOWCASED TODAY 
Hi everyone,  Today I am sharing my take on this month’s Mood Board Challenge at Dusty Attic.  How fresh and pretty is the colour palette!!



“A Moment Captured”

I took inspiration from the colour palette and the floral accents of this month’s Mood Board.

I started by stenciling my background with Dusty Attic Bedazzled Stencil and white texture paste.  Once dry I misted around the stenciled design with yellow mist.

How gorgeous are the new Fancy Frames chipboard designs!!  I altered them and the Mystic Flourishes by first coating with gesso and then coating with white Liquid Pearls to add textured glossiness.

Another of the fabulous new release chippies are the Impact Titles… so many to choose from!!  I have used “a moment captured” which I altered by coating with cobalt archival ink, then inking over the top with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in Faded Jeans.

The fern leaf chipboard pieces were altered with a coat of Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Peeled Paint, then a coat of Twisted Citron Distress Oxide.

Why not pop in to the Dusty Attic Website to check out all the gorgeous new release chippies.

Cathy here today sharing a vintage steampunk layout inspired by the gorgeous new industrial chipboard designs from Dusty Attic.
“We Must Have Adventures”

 I am in love with the new industrial chipboard designs, which are perfect for masculine or feminine grunge/vintage themed layouts and just the thing for steampunk inspired creations.



I came across this eye-catching steampunk photo on Pinterest, which was the inspiration for my layout.. isn’t he just dashing!!



Going through my considerable stash of papers I found some old vintage Bo Bunny and Prima papers which I tore to keep to my theme, then added a bit of stamping on my background with Kaisercraft crackle texture stamp… one of my all time favourites and fabulous for vintage/grunge.

To alter my chipboard pieces I coated with DecoArt Metallic Lustre – White Frost, then highlighted areas with Cosmic Blue Metallic Lustre and Prima Art Alchemy Rich Copper Metallique Wax.  I adore metallic pastes, they are are quick and easy way to alter your chipboard pieces to give them a WOW factor!!
