Registrations for the 2019 Dusty Attic Retreat will open
Cathy here today, sharing my layout for this month.
I absolutely adore the recent release Creative Script chipboard!! I altered by coating with Dusty in Colour Faded Denim, which is a quick and easy way to make your chipboard pieces pop. I find applying the paint with a sponge gives better coverage than using a brush.
I also watered down the paint a little and flicked randomly over my background, along with some Lindys mist in a softer blue.
To tie in with my colour scheme, I altered the DeVine Frame corners and Happy title with Little Birdie cream chalk paint. I highlighted the leaves on the corner frames with Distress Oxide in Frayed Burlap to create a little dimension.
The Dusty in Colour Clear Gloss Varnish is one of my must have products. As I love to create with texture and dimension, the gloss varnish is perfect for adhering microbeads, sequins, beads and art stones to your mixed media backgrounds. Just squeeze out a bit onto your messy mat pick up the gloss with a brush, then pick up your beads. You can then just brush your beads/stones onto your background… so quick and easy!!
