Welcome to the blog today. My November design team layout features beautiful Dusty Attic Christmas chipboard pieces. This layout features my granddaughter Mila.
I love using Wordpl@y on my layouts. They are one of my favourite additions to a layout.
All the chippies were first primed with a layer of white acrylic paint and then painted with Americana Acrylic paint. The stars were painted with Tuscan Red, Green Lagoon, and Sour Apple. Once dry I covered them with glossy accents and sprinkled them with Ranger Stickles Fine Glitter in Christmas Red and Star Dust. The title was painted with Tuscan Red and the mini captions with Green Lagoon then I dry brushed the edges with white acrylic paint.
What a cute Gnome and so much fun to paint! I painted the hat with Tuscan Red and the shirt with Green Lagoon. For the dungaree, I used a Posca Pen in Light Green. I painted the little nose with Dusty Rose and the edges of the white beard were dry-brushed with Slate Grey. I painted the Christmas trees with Tuscan Red, Sour Apple, and Green Lagoon. For the dots on the Gnome’s hat and the Christmas trees, I used a white Posca Pen.
I lightly painted the holly with Festive Green and Hauser Light Green making sure I didn’t cover the veins of the hollies. The edges were dry brushed with white acrylic paint. The berries were painted with Tuscan Red. Once dry I covered them with glossy accents and sprinkled them with Ranger Stickles Fine Glitter in Christmas Red.
These Christmas Berries and the Holly Wreath were treated in the same manner as the red stars and the hollies.
The final touches to this layout included pearls, glitter, and splatters with diluted white gesso. Dusty Attic products used.
