Hello Dusty Attic Fans! Gabrielle here with you today to share a bunch of projects I’ve made over the past few weeks using some NEW and some old favourite chipboard pieces! I absolutely LOVE the new scripted chipboard titles Word Pack #4. I just adore a pretty scripted title! I also used the Cyclone Wire as an accent piece around the photo and the top of the page.
I used some shimmery paint (Shimmerz Key Lime) fading in and out of the title piece. I gave the whole title a finishing coat with some Glossy Accents.

The next project I’m sharing is Mermaid canvas I made using the NEW Sea Grass
chippie, I just love the pretty flowing underwater look it gives a project! I also used some Grass Clusters #2
and some Dusty Attic alphabet pieces for my title.
Here’s a close-up of the Sea Grass chippie, ….I painted white and then added some Key Lime Shimmerz paint and Olive Green Shimmerz on the tips. You can watch a Video Tutorial I made for this canvas here…
I used dimensional paint to create a textural finish to the frame and then used Shimmerz Inklingz (Brass Knuckles) and Dimensionz (Blue Lagoon) to give it a vintage brass look.

I used a similar technique on the Baroque corners, using dimensional paints, Gesso and brown ink to make textural shabby chic embellishments for the corners. Here is a Video Tutorial I made to show step by step how I made this canvas….
Can you tell I’ve been having fun with canvas’s this month? This was a fun, quick and easy canvas to make! I used some beautiful Graphic 45 paper and stamps and some of my favourite Dusty Attic chippies.
Corner Scroll #2
is one of my all time favourite scrolls! It works so well with so many styles. I gave the chippies a coat of Gesso, did a little stamping and inking with brown chalk ink and then gave it a coat of Crackle medium to get a nice aged look.
I used the Dusty Attic Anchors chippie to accent the corner, I just rubbed on some Bronze 3D paint and randomly added some aqua color paint on some areas to give it an aged patina. And here is a video tutorial I made for this reverse canvas project…
One more project I wanted to share with you all is a layout I made as a guest designer for Graphic 45. I used the beautiful Botanical Tea collection papers and some of their lovely metal accents to make up this page. I loved the pretty little pink blossoms that I could fussy cut from the patterned papers. I married these with the amazing Dusty Attic Branch #1
I simply painted the branch with Dusty Attic’s Hot Chocolate paint and tipped the leaves with DA’s Pesto green paint….stuck on the fussy cut blooms, and voila, you have a unique embellishment for your project!
I hope you all enjoyed my project for this month and thank you all for having the patience to scroll through this super long post! 🙂 As you can tell, no matter what project I make up….Dusty Attic chippies are never far from my finger tips!
