Adore...March Month Inspiration

Posted by Rajni Chawla

                                                                           Hello all 
Dropping again with new inspiration for Dusty Attic board.Hope you have all seen the gorgeous March mood board. I really had fun creating this new project. Don't forget to share your new creation following our March moldboard using Dusty Attic chipboards in your project. There is $100 Dusty Attic Gift Voucher for the winner. Simply link your creation in the right of the Dusty Attic Blog. .

Here is the March month mood-board.

Now my take on March mood-board.

Her'e's the thing about love. It's hard to put into words.You are not an option, a choice or a soft place to land after a long battle. You were meant to be the one. If you can wrap yourself around the idea that you are something incredible, then you will stop excusing behavior that rapes your very soul. You were never meant to teach someone to love you. You were meant to be loved. Try to adore yourself and trust
 me you will fall short of words to pen down that amazing feeling. 

To start with I selected patterns paper from Love Story Collection by Blue Fern Studios and Glued it to 

thick black chipboard. Primed a part of it with a light coat of white gesso and different layers of textures using Dusty Attic texture Paste, stencils and stamps. Misted the background using various shades of sprays. When happy with the background I started  building layers of handmade pattern papers adding  dimensions with dimensional tape.  

Here is the close up shot to show you different layers that I created.

All the chipboard pieces used (except DA Feather Charm #4) were painted using Dusty in colour Alabaster, Dusty in colour Hot Chocolate and Dusty in colour Raisin.I just simply stained DA Feather Charm and sprinkled some clear glitters to enhance the beauty of the charm.

I used fussy cut images of flowers form Graphic45 Once Upon a Springtime Collection and Gilded Lily Collection. For fussy cutting I specially use my favourite parchment scissors."Be Happy" is from DA Word Disk Collection #1.

Title "Adore" is from DA Word Pack #14

Now onto main focal image. Its from Deco-mania Rice Paper. Cut the image,glue it onto thick card stock and then paint it with Dusty Attic Ckear Crackle Varnish and set it to dry for 3-4 hours. Here is the pic to show you the beautiful textures that I got with DA clear crackle.

Look how gorgeous is the output of  DA IVY Corner #2 around the picture. I love it !!

 On the top edge and the right side corner were distressed with scissors and stained a little with vintage photo distress ink by Ranger.
Few more close-up shots....
