Fresh Air - Amy Voorthuis

 

Goodmorning lovelies, 

Don't you just love creating with your Dusty Attic chippies & 49 and Market products? Well me I am totally hooked it feels like I am in chipboard/flower heaven every time I create with these amazing chippies and flowers and it is so easy to make a great layout. For this layout I used only three sheets, one from "Vintage Artistry" and two sheets from the stunning new "Cottage Life" collection. This time I went for the red color in this collection since I already used the green/blue and pink colors several times. The Dusty Attic designed some new chippies that totally fits this new collection and what is great about that too, that they have them in black yeahhh. My favorite colors of the flowers by 49 and Market are the Aloe, Mojito and the white ones too, I always seem to take those out of my flower basket.

Fresh Air: 




I really enjoy all the elements on the cut out sheet has but also the layered embellishments are a delight and so easy to just peel it off and add to your work. The background sheet was treated with clear gesso before I added all my embellishments, paste, stamps, ink and ink sprays. I pricked holes in the outer lines of my paper and just went over it with a bonefolder then I added some timber brown stazon ink with a blending tool.



















Then I took out my white ink and some of the text stamps by 49 and Market and stamped around the edges it took adges to dry tho so that was not great because on some placed it smeared. After that I used a Dusty Attic stencil with the text and added paste to my layout. The next thing I always do is to take out my chipbaord pieces that I like to use on a particular layout and treat them with white gesso before I treat them with any other medium.



















The other mediums I treated my chipboard pieces with this time are rust paste by finnabair and also the waxes in the colors Fire Ruby & Bronze Age. But the easy part are the word strips and word tab on my work they did not have to be treated at all and you can just add them to your work. In the new flower pack there are such gorgeous leaves that I had to use them on my work. I am a real sucker for the vines that 49 and Market offers here I used the white one.

Wings - Sanderijn de Bruin (Challenge inspiration)


 Hi everybody!



It's Sanderijn here, with my newest layout, based on the amazingly inspiring moodboard for this month's challenge.





I have created a page which has a deeper meaning. It's about the open door in the picture. It's symbolic for the oppertunity to see, in every situation, the ability to be free, to follow a new path, reach for the stars, and spread your wings...





I used a lot of birds in the layout, to make it symbolic for 'flying through the open door'.



So I hope everybody remembers, they always have a choice in life, to open a new door, a new path, and to search for their own (inner) freedom...



The background is created with a layer of clear gesso, several layers of different stencil patterns,  added with gesso. I splattered some golden watercolour paints too.



I build up my page with cheese cloth, lace, tags, art stones, chipboard pieces, stamped flowers, 3D flowers and word stickers.

Altered Lantern - Joanne Bain - Off the Page


Hi everyone!

Joanne here with you today sharing my little altered lantern. I purchased the small tealight lantern from Bunnings and then added quiet a few Dusty chippy pieces to alter it.

'Altered Lantern'



To colour the lantern I have used Finnabair Rust Paste and the newer Patina Paste set. I so love the texture and detail these pastes give, they blend together beautifully.


To create the main band of the lantern I used the Dusty Ivy Flourish over the top of  the Scroll Border #4. To enable the chippy to be able to bend around the lantern I soaked for a couple of seconds in water until it was slightly wet not thoroughly soaked, by doing this it will bend without breaking.


The front cluster has been made up from hearts cut from Medallions #1, Doodads #5, Industrial Stars, pieces cut from Lace Border #3 and Snowflakes.


The top piece for the lantern was created by cutting one of the lace pieces off of the Lace Border piece. I then attach and Industrial Star and title piece from the Cherish Yesterday word set.



Along with the chipboard I also added some metal pieces and metal buttons. To add extra interest I added a little bling to the chains and also added a very light dry brush Finnabair Vintage Silk wax.
