The Beauty of Nature is all around – Patricia Basson

Hello Dusty friends…Once again Autumn is creeping up on us here in South Africa! My favorite time of the year, going into winter which I absolutly love…I found this beautiful image on Pinterest and used it to create this lovely page as my Dusty Attic Moodboard project .I used the following papers from 49 & Market, Clockworks from Scents of Nature as background and Wallflower from Vintage  Artistry. I kept the footnote from Clockworks as my title, could not let it go to waste. I punched a small circle in the center of my paper with a Marta Steward punch and did some hand-stitching on the page.

I Gesso’d the Flower Vine, I then covered it with Ancient Pink Glamor Paste from Stamperia. Then used some Red Amber wax from Finnabair in the center and Old White wax on the edges.On the raw Lemon Leaves and Blooms I used White Gold and Graphite wax. 
The Oars and the tree stump of the Seagull I painted with Raw Umber and Raw Sienna Acrylic paints. I added Clear Rock Candy crackle paint from Ranger and when dry some Old White wax on the edges. The Seagull was coloured with some Graphite wax and black Distress Ink and Old White wax on the edge.
I embossed the raw Tea Leaves with Earthone Pepper Embossing Powder from WOW, sprayed some Saxifrage Olive Copper Spray from Lindy’s Stampgang on the warm embossing and heat it again creating the lovely droplets effects!

Different flowers , A Penny Saved Prills and Henna Mica Flakes complete this page.

From the Dusty Attic On-line shop I used the following chipboard designs…

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,There is a rapture on the lonely shore,There is society, where none intrudes,By the deep Sea, and music in its roar:I love not Man the less, but Nature more…~Lord Byron~
