Dusty Attic August Mood Board Challenge - Mini Canvas

Hi everyone,

Today I am sharing my take on this month's beautiful Mood Board, which was the inspiration for my Shabby Chic Boho Skull Canvas, created using gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard and stencil designs.  You have until the end of the month to join in for your chance to win a $100 Prize Voucher from the Dusty Attic website!!

Wild and Free

To create my background, I started by covering my canvas with a cream pp and then stamped around the edges to create a border.  I then stenciled the background with the beautiful Mandala Stencil and Metallic Lustre in Coral.
The Boho Skull and Mini Feather chipboard pieces were coated with White Frost Metallic Lustre and a touch of Coral Metallic Lustre on the ends of the feathers, which I attached to the Skull with DMC thread.
I was drawn to the shabby chic photos in the Mood Board and was inspired by the lace doily and pretty blooms and used fussy cut blossoms and a doily stamp to alter the Boho Skull
For the title I used the Mini Script and Teeny Weeny ABC chipboard sets, which I coated with White Frost Metallic Lustre, then lightly dabbed over with Peeled Paint Distress Oxide, let it sit for a minute, then wiped off, so it left just a hint of colour.  I used the Clear Gloss Varnish to adhere the title to my canvas.

Dusty Attic August DT Creation

Hi Everyone,

Today I am sharing my Dusty Attic project for this month using a few gorgeous Chipboard and Stencil Designs.

I recently purchased a few new colours to add to my stash of metallic pastes, which I love to use to alter my chipboard pieces and was inspired by the them to create my layout.  They are very easy to apply and give the most beautiful shimmery finish.

To create my background I used the Damask #2 Stencil Design with Decoart Champagne Metallic Lustre.

For some texture and depth I watered down a bit of Dusty in Colour Clear Gloss Varnish, which I randomly flicked around my stenciling.  I then sprinkled over the gloss varnish with a mix of copper glitter glass and microbeads and removed the excess.

The Clockworks SmallHappy and Mini Tabs #3 chipboard pieces were coated with Champagne Metallic Lustre and the Doily #10 and Foliage #7 were coated with Rose Gold Metallic Lustre.  To add more shimmer and depth, I randomly applied Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Flakes in Egyptian Gold which is a mix of copper, silver, gold and a touch of burgundy flakes... simply divine!!!

The Mini Tabs #3 is one of the new release chipboard designs.  Pop in to the Store to see all of our beautiful new designs.
