Me again Blogger friends, with a project for this months Moodboard from Dusty Attic….
One of the newer designs in the shop is this BoHo skull…I was not sure how to use it until this months moodboard. I was so inspired by the rich colours and thought that is the ideal way to use the skull.
I used a cheap photo frame, added some Art stones to the corners, painted it with black gesso. I then painted the frame with a mixture of Chipped Sapphire and Cracked Pistachio Distress paint and some blue acrylic paint. Also rubbed on some Art Alchemy Waxes.
All the chipboard pieces were painted with white gesso. I then added some crackle paint to the skull. Once dry I painted it with the following Distress Oxide Re-Inkers, Antique Linen, Iced Spruce and Walnut Stain. The leaves where painted with Lindy’s Stampgang Sprays Maidenhair Fern Green and Pondorosa Pines Olive. The flowers were painted with several water colours and embossed with clear embossing powder.
I inked the Beaded Flourish #3 with Monarch Orange Archival Ink and Cocoa Bean Copper Lindy’s Spray. Also added a few drops of Chestnut Liquid Pearls. It was then cut into pieces and added to the skull.
The Retro Frame was also inked with the Monarch Orange and Spray as well as with Cornflower Blue Archival Ink and Time Travel Teal Lindy’s Spray.
I hope I could inspire you to get to the Dusty Attic shop where there are many more amazing design to choose from…

“Bohemianism is the practice of an unconventional lifestyle, often in the company of like-minded people, with few permanent ties, involving musical, artistic, literary or spiritual pursuits. In this context, Bohemians may or may not be wanderers, adventurers, or vagabonds.”
We are all a little bit hippy,
a little bohemian.
We take that from the culture we knew,
from the ’70s and the ’80s.
