Dusty Attic November 2015 Mood Board

 Hello Dusty Attic Lovers!! Today I bring you my interpretation of the Mood Board this month.The lavender and the gold colors in the palette just screamed my creative name. I had a ton of fun using my favorite color. Purple!!I took a series of photos of my dear grand daughter Charlotte in a fairy Tutu I handmade, and dreamed of creating a woodsy fairy like layout. This is the result.

If you know me, you know I love butterflies, so I am always looking for new and beautiful ones. While cruising my favorite digital site,  Studio Girls Scrapbook Graphics,   I found these gorgeous purple butterflies in a kit by Rosy Posey. The Featherweight Collection. There are a lot of elements I will be using in future projects.

One of the simplest things you can do to dress up your chip board is to heat emboss it. I primed it with white gesso then used Lindys Stamp Gang embossing powder in Spring Leaf Chartreuse. I added a few dots of Distress Stickles just for a little sparkle.

To get the texture on this Elegant Frame, I used a technique shown by my teamie Gabrielle Pollacco, but I added a twist. I used dimensional paint on the frame,  once the dimensional paint was dry, I painted it using Crackle paint in white, sprayed it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst in  Teapot Purple then very lightly heat embossed it with Aurora Amethyst.

I just heat embossed the words from the Cherish Yesterday set with Lindy's Stamp Gang embossing powder in Aurora Amethyst. It naturally has a 2 toned effect. Love that about Lindys Embossing Powders!!

The Branches and Berries chipboard was painted in white gesso, then painted with Lindy's Stamp Gang Magicals.  I  adore the delicate leaves on this branch. The flowers are Dusty in Bloom flowers in Vintage Rose. They have a gorgeous sheen to some of them. I love the mixed textures of fabric and paper flowers in some of the packages.

I'll tell ya....Working with corrugated cardboard is pretty addicting to me. Peeling back the layers just makes it that more beautiful. And oh so dimensional. If you want that rustic woodsy feel, give it a try.
