Amour – Nicole Doiron

Hello Dusty FANattics!


It’s Nicole and I’m in the mood for love! 🙂 


I recently went to the wedding celebration of 2 of my best friends, and I thought it would be special to create a canvas for them to remember this special day.


The canvas is 16 inches by 20 inches. I covered it with a coat of clear gesso,

and then used 2 different Dusty Attic stencils, Damask #2 and Large Dot, to add some texture and design to the base with modeling paste and several coats of inks, sprays and paints.

Since my friends are francophones, I used a saying from the French Wordplay, the Ensemble Amour set, as well as the word ‘moments’ from the Mini Tags #3 which has the same meaning in both languages.

Working with such a large surface, I thought it would be awesome to use several of the beautiful Fancy Frames. I added a few smaller frames from the Frame Medley. 


I wanted to keep them all elegant and classy and part of the background, so I used white embossing powder and white acrylic paint on them.



In the above image you see two Ornate Pendants colored in black.



On the words I used paprika colored embossing powder to match the orange and royal blue colour palette, which you can guess were also the wedding colours. I decorated with some Baroque Flourishes and black Decorative Dots.


I went a bit crazy with the flowers!  I love how there is no limit when working with canvases… you can use some of the biggest and thickest flowers in your staff because there’s no limit!


I always get very nervous when creating a project as a gift, but I do love how this turned out, and my friends loved it as well.


Now, let’s take a look at all the Dusty Attic chipboard and other products used.
