Hi, Vicky blogging today. Each month we have a fantastic Dusty Attic sketch challenge and the winner gets a great chipboard package prize – so please link your entry on the right side of the blog!
This month I decided to pull out some old papers from my stash (G45 and Basic Grey) to complement the lovely sketch. These floral papers were perfect to be embellished with the newest birds on a branch, mini gates and hashtag saying chipboard pieces.
Let’s start with the beautiful sketch – so inspirational!
I cut the chipboard branch in two and placed the pieces at the top of my page. The branch was finished using Dusty Attic paints (alabaster, forrest, pesto, crushed olive, soot, hot chocolate). The birds were primed with gesso, inked with pink for the bellies and finished with snow-tex for their backs and tails.
The gates were simply randomly splattered with gesso – that’s it! The title was primed with gesso and topped with snow-tex. I also added a few Dusty Attic celestial white blooms and some smaller Petaloo flowers (around the gates and in the branch).
Thanks for joining me on the blog today and don’t forget to link your interpretation of the monthly sketch on the right side of the Dusty Attic Blog!
