Dusty Attic Mood Board Challenge December 2017

December Challenge 2017

Boy... am I glad Christmas is over... Every second year we share our boys with their other parent which is great for some quality time together.. But it's just not quite the same without them.. Which I why on Boxing day I have a chance to catch up on my blog.. 

I was in love with this mood board right from the get go... I saw those stones and knew instantly I had a secret ingredient for this months challenge. Take a look.. 

Can you see what it is... Its Jade crystals that my gypsy soul has held on to for an eon.. 
They are just precious..

I created the focal point with a Prima Marketing mold, added Gesso and coloured away with Lindy's Merci Beaucoup Mint and  Midnight Rendevous Raven. After that I added a rub of Finnabair Waxes in Vintage silk and a Cuts 2 love badge as a topper.

I used my Dusty Attic Clocks and the Sweet Pea Frame set for my Chippie... I used Gesso and Finnabair wax vintage silk to give the clocks a it of colour.. I really didnt want them to take over the page... I wanted my frames to do that.

I cut the frame up and used them as a frame to drape my succulents on. I got some Guten Tag Teal embossing powder in my Christmas pressies and was itching to use it.. Ok  -so i might have opened that present early..

I used some Lindys  'Jack in the Pulpit Teal' to colour my Succulent Dies and frosted the tips with some BO Bunny Glitter paste in 'Seafoam'.

Here I used my Script stencil from Dusty Attic to create some depth to the background and used my Nuvo Embossing paste. I used clear gesso to prepare the background and before it was completely dry added Lindy's Merci Beaucoup Mint embossing powder. you can see it near the stamping.. It looks and feels fabulous.

I could go on all day about the products and techniques I used... But I just wanted to say thanks to Dusty Attic. These are the links to the products used! If you like this then check out my Instagram... AbelaArtistry
