Too cool for school – Nicole Doiron

Hello Dusty FANattics!

It’s Nicole here with you today to inspire you!
September here in Canada and most other countries in the Northern hemisphere  means the infamous return to school and since Dusty Attic has released earlier this year some fabulous school-themed chipboard sets I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to document my nieces’ return just last week.

I chose the Too Cool For School title which I covered in black embossing powder.

Because these chipboard pieces are so lifelike, I wanted to try to make them as realistic looking as possible, and in order to do that I used a combination of embossing powders, metallic markers and a bit of paint on each piece.

I really love the look of all this chipboard!

Look at this clip… You would think it was real!

I just covered it with black paint and then used metallic silver marker on the metal part.

Needless to say, I’m a very proud aunt to have such awesome nieces!

Now let’s take a closer look at all the Dusty Attic chippies used on my page.
