Now is the Time – Patricia Basson – Journal cover

Time again for my March DT project for Dusty Attic….
I took an ordinary Black Hardcover Notebook that I use to write my notes in, and made it gorgeous with several Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces.

I covered it with a nice, thick layer of heavy Gesso. Made some patterns in it and and added pieces of the Large Geometric 12×12 panel. After adding some white crackle paste over and around the chipboard pieces and letting it air-dry, I painted it with some Cashmere Paint mixed with Lindy’s Stampgang ‘Glory Of The Seas Gold’ Starburst Spray. Also painted with watered down Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Ink. I added a good spray of Lindy’s Tawny Turquoise Moon Shadow Mist in the Geometric shapes leaving it to pool and add glorious shimmer to the project.

On the raw Vintage Clock #1 I sprayed Lindy’s Bayou Boogie Gold and Shabby Turbine Teal Sprays. I used Prima Rust Pastes on the Gem Drop Border and the Decorative Keyhole and covered them with a thick layer of Clear Crackle Varnish

Some Little Birdie flowers, a Tim Holtz Paper Doll and a few rusted washers complete the transformation of a dull black cover to a yummylisious Mixed Media item!

If you would like to try your hand at something similar, here in the Dusty Attic Shop is where you can find the Dusty Attic products I have used….  


Thank you for your visit…
