Lovely - Moodboard November Dusty Attic

Hello and welcome!  Oh my gosh - I had to dive right in when I seen this months mood board.  Seriously sooooo pretty.  Lets have another look.

Seriously pretty hey!

I decided to pull out some pretty 49 & Market paper that I have been hoarding along with some Dusty chippy along with a pic of my daughter (thats her on the left of the pic) and her friend who has just graduated from Year 12 and leaving school.  Another of those proud mum moments!

To start I laid those awesome ornate gates on my page and built up my cluster from there.  I used some Card Deco inks to cover my chippy.

I added the pretty die cuts and also tucked in the chipboard daisies.  These along with that pretty frame I covered with some acrylic paint and then added some glitter glue over the top.

I finished with a really simple title from the Wordpack #14.  I struggle with titles for my layouts, but I find that Dusty Attic have the perfect selection without being too "cheesy"

I hope I have inspired you to give the moodboard a try.  There is is some wonderful prizes up for grabs.

Imagination Tag - Dusty Attic

Hello and welcome back to the blog today.

Today I have a tag to share with you.

Im not really one for much mixed media but every now and then I like to have a little play and I find the chipboard tags wonderful for that.  Nice big tags with lots of room to create.

To start I covered my chipboard tag with some black gesso.  I also covered my chipboard pieces with black gesso.

Using the diamonds stencil I added some texture paste and when that was dry covered it again with black gesso.  Prima waxes were used to add colour to the tag.

I then laid the cogs and cog balloon on my tag and also added some prima waxes.  For a bit of extra texture I added some black cotton.

Very simply but it was nice to get a little messy.  Here is a closer shot
