Hello Dusty Attic fans!
It’s Belinda here today to share my project for The Dusty Attic inspired by the gorgeous July Mood Board. For my project today I decided to create something a little different to my usual layout and make some ocean themed artist trading cards instead.
I love these colours so much and they are perfectly suited to an ocean/beach theme.
To start my atcs, I played around with acrylic paints in the colours of the mood board. I used a palette knife to spread the paints over the surfaces.
I used a selection of fabulous mini ocean themed chipboards to decorate my atcs. I painted them all with a few coats of heavy white gesso to seal them and create a light base to make my acrylic paint colours more vibrant. The gesso seals the chipboard and stops the colours soaking in. Then I painted them using the same acrylic paints as the background.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope you find some time to play along with the mood board this month too.
