This selfie-photo of my daughter popped up a few days ago as her profile pic. Seeing as I have the ‘worsts’ kids to take photos of I had to jump on this gorgeous photo of her…Apart from the lovely Dusty Attic Chippies, I used two sheets of 49 & Market Serendipituos collection, Rain Storm and Hazy Morning. I tore the Rain Storm and used Hazy Morning as the back page.I stamped on the paper and edges and also stamped and foiled with Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes; Mulled Wine. The flowers are also from Dusty Attic: Dusty in Bloom, Blue Bonnet and Grassy Knoll.Because of Michelle’s personality, she is the girly, technically inclined one in the family, I opted for an Industrial- Chic look.
I gesso’d all of the chipboards with white Gesso. On the Decorative Frame and Chain Rectangles I applied Art Alchamy Sparks Paint; Green Goblin with a sponge. This gives some texture to the pieces as well as lovely color change. I used White Gold Metallique wax as highlight.On the Bike Chains and Industrial Globes I used Charcoal Black and Rusty Red waxes with the White Gold again to highlight. I placed some plastic colored with Alcohol Inks behind the globes. I just love the details that come out of the designs even using only a few products and techniques. A few Blooms and some 49 & Market cut-outs add the feminine touch to the page.
From the Dusty Attic On-line shop I used the following.
