Here is what Cathy has to share with you …
Hi there! My name is Cathy Cafun and I live in sunny Queensland with my husband, 2 children and 2 cute fur babies, who are the inspiration for most of my scrapbooking creations and who very patiently… well most of the time… put up with me constantly trying to capture them on film!
I was introduced to paper crafting by a close friend 10 years ago, and it has become an all-consuming passion and is now part of my daily life.
If I had to describe my style I would say it is predominantly shabby chic/romantic, but I am very partial to the grungy distressed look when creating masculine layouts. My pages, cards and BTP projects always have elements of texture and dimension and I find layering, distressing and any form of mixed media a wonderful way to achieve this.
My creations have been published in magazines here in Australia and overseas. Being part of the Scrapbooking Industry has allowed me to share my passion for paper crafting by teaching at various stores and Scrapbooking Events in Brisbane and interstate, as well as on the Workshop Wonders on Waters Scrapbooking Cruise!!
I am so excited to have been invited to be part of the Dusty Attic Design Team, working alongside this amazingly talented group of ladies, and I can’t wait to share my creations with you.
Thank you Cathy, we cant wait to see your creations !

Once the crackle dried I painted the chipboard with the LuminArt & Shimmeriz paints…

I dipped the mini blossoms in water, & separated the chipboard layers, then painted them with LuminArt paints, glued a couple of the layers together, then added the micro beads for the flower centers….
