Altered Notebook - Dusty Attic

Hello and thanks so much for stopping by and spending a little time with me today.

I hope you are all well and safe wherever you are in this big wide world.

Today I thought I would share with you a notebook which I altered with some of lovely Dusty Attic Chipboard.

This was so much fun to make and I definately got my hands dirty which is something I don't often enjoy!

I created some texture on my cover first with some pastes and also added the Brickwork stencil with some ink for an extra bit of layering and colour.

I then covered my Cog Cluster with some paint and highlighted it with some yellow rust paste.  The texture is a little hard to see but it looks great.  I also added some extra cogs from the Cogs no. 3 as well.

For a bit of extra interest I covered the Broken Bits #1 numbers in black gesso and added some paint and waxes to them.

Here is a couple of close shots so you can see all the texture

Moodboard Dusty Attic - August

Welcome Dusty Fanatics!

Wow!  Seriously how pretty is this months new moodboard? 

I really gravitated towards the yellow which is a colour I don't often use.

I made a quick and simple card.

I started by layering up a couple of pretty sheets of paper and then selected my chipboard pieces.

Next I laid down my broken bits #2 circles which I covered with some blue oxide ink.  I love using the oxide ink on my chipboard as it sits on top and I don't have to gesso it.

The layered garland I added on top of my broken bits.  This was painted with some metalic paints for a bit of shimmer.

I added the tribal arrow, again painted with some shimmery paint and lastly my flower which I made from foamiran.

Very quick, very simple.  I hope I have inpsired you to give the moodboard a go this month.  We love to see your take on it.  Give it a go!
