                                                    Sweet Dreams

I made this page for the Dusty Attic Design Team Call.  I used papers from the August kit by Swirlydoos kit club called Wistful Blues.  It had gorgeous papers by several manufacturers, but I chose a paper by Kaisercraft from the Key to my Heart collection, and Bo Bunny from Somewhere in time collection.  I painted the paper with Mahogany paint by 13 Arts, and used a spatter stencil by The Crafter's Workshop. Of course my page bowed and no amount of trying to flatten overnight worked.  I also stamped with a feather stamp from my stash with black paint by 13 Arts.  I also wet a paintbrush and flicked the black paint around.  The mat for my picture is by  Prima and was in a previous Swirlydoos kit. The butterfly's are by Prima. 

The flowers on the page are by Dusty Attic.

I used several pieces of Dusty Attic Chipboard on my page.

I made this canvas for the Dusty Attic  Design Team call.  I prepped the canvas with Gesso.  I used a Prima mask with Martha Stewart texture paste.  I sprayed with Shimmerz bed of roses.  I let it dry.  I painted with wild abandon with a blue paint by 13 Arts.  I mixed the paint with the Martha Stewart texture paste, but it was too light so I added a a pastel blue spray by 13 Arts until I liked the color then added this blue paste with a clock mask by 13 Arts.  I added a pink flower vine purchased from Angelica's store, Little Scrap Shop on Etsy.  I had some packs of white flowers by Recollections for Michaels.  I inked the middle to try to match the vine, but of course I didn't have the exact pink color.   I like this better then any other canvas I have done.  The picture is of my parents on their wedding day.  I am going to frame this canvas, and give it to my mom for Christmas.  I can't wait!

I Added a lot of Dusty Attic Chipboard.  I added white and gold paint on the chipboard until I liked the look.

This is a page I made for the Dusty Attic September Sketch.  I used paper from Riddersholm designs.  I received this paper in the August kit from Swirlydoos kit club.  I made this page of my cat Tabba.  I distressed the paper lightly, and I painted with 13 Arts paint.  I used several Dusty Attic chipboard on my page.
