Painted with gesso and acrylic paints.
Added these Dusty Attic goodies:
Cogs, DA0002

Have a great day!

mini album

Hi all!

Made my first mini album..yeah!
This one is a gift to my co-worker. 
She got retired from work today and I wanted to give her something personal. 
Just a reminder of all the lovely, fun and wonderful hours working together at the lab.

Dusty Attic chippies used:
Mini Scrolls, DA 0685
Mini Clock Faces, DA 0702
Mini Keys and locks, DA 0679

It was quite a challenge embellishing the pages to keep it flat!
Thought it was fun to add some lab details.
Here are the pages:

Enjoy your day!

canvas for Yiscka

Hi all!

This canvas was made for my youngest daughter Yiscka.
When she got these cute mini nail polishers from her big sis, I immediate knew what I wanted to make.
Made this canvas which reflect her personality perfectly.
She is such a happy, sunny and loving girl and she really colors my world and the world around her!
She absolutely loved this canvas and it's now proudly hanging on her bedroom wall.

Had a lot of fun making this!
First started to layering the jute, cardboard, threads, some metal parts and tooth-pics.
Covered it all with a layer of gesso.
Misted and painted it and began to embellish with the colors of the mini nail-polishers.
Used some Dusty Attic goodies.  
I'm seriously in LOVE with their chippies!
This is what a used for this canvas:
ATC Frame#1, DA 0673
Vintage Nameplate, DA 0463
Mini Wire dress form, DA 0670

And some details:

Wishing you all a sunny, happy and colorful day!

august ATC

Hi all!

It's a new month so time for the august ATC challenge and swap at Dusty Attic.
The theme for this month is "through the window".
Since I didn't have a window frame, I decided to make one myself.
The shutters were made from ribbon (glued on a piece of white cardstock) and the beachy scenery was painted with acrylic paint.
Chippies used:
Fancy Trim #4 DA 0470
Mini Birds #1 DA 0723

Enjoy your day!
