JUNE 2018

Hello Dusty FANattics

 (still not as cold as some places around the world !) 
However it has been perfect to stay inside, warm and toasty and create.

I will be back tomorrow with the TWO Winners of May Moodboard who have won a $50 AUD voucher each to the Dusty Attic Website  
June’s Board is ever so soft and pretty and can be used in so many ways, to start off the month is our uber talented Rachelle. 


Hello, today I would like to share with you a LO I did, using Dusty Attic’s Soft & Beautiful Mood Board for June, & of course using some of Dusty’s Beautiful Chipboard Pieces…..

From the Mood Board, I used the colors, lace, thread, scissors, a doily….

With a change to the prize we also have a change to the “Challenge” and have Mood Boards this year (with no sketch), all you have to do is link your entry to the right hand side of the blog with your name and country for your chance to win one of two $50 vouchers, you can use the mood board to sway your creation, the only “rule” is that there is Dusty Attic Chipboard on your entry, remember there is the FREE SHIPPING offer that has been extended as well

Shows distressed, hand stitched paper layers, using the ATC frame that I cut in half & lace in the layers…. 

I primed the chipboard with white gesso, then applied a thick coat of clear crackle onto most of the pieces. I let the crackle dry naturally, it takes a few hours to dry. Once the crackle dried I painted the pieces with the Silk-Oyster, & glued on Prills onto some of the pieces…..In this Cluster I used DA Swirly Vine, Seagrass,Foliage, Mini Birdcage, 49 and Market Flowers, died lace, netting & scissors….

Another image of the cluster. I altered the flower centers with Prills & Sequins….
I framed the photo with the Antique Frame & Ornate Frame, glued on the birdcage & made a few more flower clusters…..

Under the framed photo I glued on a doily…….Here are a few more close ups……

Thank you so much for taking the time to look & I am looking forward to see what you come up with this months Mood Board Challenge……Rachelle
