This Month The ATC Theme is –Fairies & Flutterflies
like to create depth on most pieces I work on, I think I may have gone a
little OTT (over the top) on such a small surface, but it was fun and
sometimes, a girls got to do what a girls got to do – go a little OTT! Being a restricted working surface, Dusty’s smaller pieces are perfect, like the Mini Vine DA0370. The other small pieces were cut from one of Dusty Attics brand new release products, which will be out real soon. I
create depth by raising the pieces using foam tape or one of my
favourite glues, Liquid Scrap Dots by Helmar and mounting words on foam
tape or chipboard.

paint, then inked the outside edges of the leaves, in a soft green ink,
and the flower, in a dusty pink colour.
like to stipple the ink onto the chipboard piece, using a makeup wedge,
working from the outside edge, fading the colour, leaving the middle
Have a wonderful new year’s eve, and a safe and happy 2013
