The Dusty Attic - Discover - New Release chipboard

Hi everyone, today I am sharing a layout created with some of the new release chipboard designs from The Dusty Attic.

Upon spying the new world map chipboard design, I knew I would use it on a travel page from my son Luke's recent trip to Japan.  I teamed it with some travel wordpl@y and disk chippies 

 To create my background I roughly tore the edges of the red pp and tore smaller sections of navy and red pp's to layer underneath, then adhered to a creamy white background.

I stamped randomly over the background first with a distress stamp in Carnation Red archival ink, then in Cobalt archival using the bubble stamps.

 I decided to use the other half of the Mystic Frame #2 chipboard, which I had cut in half to use on another project.   The frame was altered by inking in cobalt, then coating with Dusty Attic Clear Crackle Medium

The larger World Map chipboard was cut into 2 sections, then one of them was cut in half, which I used to layer on top of the Mystic Frame and in my small cluster on the bottom right.  To alter the world maps I inked them in white, then used a Tim Holtz chipped sapphire distress marker around the edges to make them pop.
The hello world Word Disk chipboard was backed with red paper, inked in cobalt and coated with Dusty Attic Clear Gloss Medium, and the Wordpl@y chipboard pieces were inked in carnation red, then coated with Clear Gloss Medium.

To finish off I flicked some watered down Izink in Jasmine, which has a lovely glossy metallic sheen.

The Dusty Attic June Mood Board/Sketch Challenge - Perfect Moment

Hi everyone, today I am sharing my take on this month's beautiful Mood Board/Sketch Challenge over at The Dusty Attic.  This month we have a gorgeous Mood Board and fabulous sketch from "The Nifty Pixel".

Why not enter for your chance to win a $100 gift voucher from the Dusty Attic website. All you need to do is use the Mood Board or Sketch or both for inspiration, add Dusty Attic chipboard to your creation and simply add your link with your name and country to the right hand side of the bar of the Dusty Attic Blog.

Perfect Moment

To create my layout I used this month's sketch and started by tearing a strip of the pretty Maja Designs floral paper to add to the left side of my weatherboard background paper and added sections of diecut lace paper to peak out from underneath.  I also added a small torn section to the top right. 

To mask my background I used Dusty Attic Texture Paste and the gorgeous new Rose Stencil.  Once dry, I outlined the roses with Tim Holtz Spun Sugar Distress Marker, then randomly stamped over the masked area with Kaisercraft tiny dot texture stamp using Tim Holtz Distress Oxide in worn lipstick.
All chipboard designs are new releases and were altered with embossing powders in glossy pearl, matte pearl and and Nuvo witch gives a textured look.   I applied them to the chipboard pieces by priming first with gesso, and whilst wet, sprinkling with embossing powder and heat setting.
