Mood Board Inspiration

You keep me anchored – Patricia Basson

Hi dear Bloggie friends…Today I am bringing you a project using the gorgeous May colours on the Dusty Attic Moodboard. Ranging in different shades of Blue and with a Beachy theme I created this Heart shape wall hanging. I covered it with some Decoupage paper from Stamperia. Also stencilled with some  Translucent crackle Paste.  Then painted the background with Liquid Acrylic Paint, Prussian Blue and Magical Pond Sparks.

I started by applying a layer of Gesso to all the pieces. I then painted the Water Tower and the Wooden Fence with Stamperia Allegio Paints, Blue Aviation, Cookie and Earth. I also added touches of Rust effect paste, Brown, Dusty and Cool Grey. 
The Rainbow and Clouds, Jellyfish and Starfish were painted with Cookie and Indian Turquoise paints. The Star Fish and Jellyfish got a little Lava Paste that was heated to pop before the paints. Easy and great added texture. 

I embossed the Fancy Frame and Ocean Waves with Ranger Speckle Embossing Powder, Blueberry and Cosmic Shimmer’s Industrial Revolution. Both beautiful multicoloured and textured. On the Gauss I sprinkled some 13Arts White shiny Glitter strips. Also added Art Stones and some small Seashells to finish the Beach theme. The Wood Slices only have the slightest lick of Gesso, leaving them with the gorgeous ring design.

There is still time to enter the Moodboard challenge. You could win one of two $50 AUD credits to the Dusty Attic online store. Remember the only requirement is that you have Dusty Attic chipboard on your creation and enter on the Dusty FANattics Page.  Have fun and good luck .
