~Paint Pan and Roller Canvas~
May 2018 Dusty Attic DT Project

Hi and Hello dear Blog friends...
My post for this months Dusty Attic DT project is quite a hefty one!!!
Seeing as the Altered Paintbrushes are doing the rounds again, I wanted to be a little different, I chose to take a small plastic Paint pan and Roller set and alter them on a Canvas...Such a fun and rewarding project!
There are some of the newest Dusty Attic Chipboard pieces on here, with Yummylisious  Paints and Rust Pastes from Finnabair. I know there are a lot of photos, but I just could not decide which to keep and which to discard! So please sit back and feast your eyes on all the goodness on this canvas....






My first step was to frame the canvas with pieces of the Dusty Attic Notepad Edge frame. I also used the Gradient Stencil and Texture paste to add dimension to the background. A first layer of Gesso was added, after drying I randomly added white Crackle Paste from Finnabair.




After placing all the other Chipboard pieces and embellishments, I covered it all with another layer of white Gesso. I then sprayed it all generously with Steel Shimmer Mist from Lindy's Stampgang.



Next I went in with several colours of Alcohol Inks, spraying and directing it with sprays of water...I will mention all the colours used at the end of the post for you....




Next came the different colours of Rust Pastes on the frame...I then coloured all the Dusty Chipboards with several Finnabair Art Alchemy Acrylic Paints, going over and over until I was happy with the end result. Once again the Rust Pastes were used. And the final touch was a little rub on of Waxes.

Here then are the close ups showing all the textures and colours...Hope you enjoy!

April 2018 - Canvas
Dusty Attic Moodboard

Good Morning Blog friends...

With still a few days to go, this is my take on the Bright and fun mood-board from Dusty Attic....





Apart from the colours, I also took inspiration from the yellow cabinet door and wall in the bottom photo. I used Door #3 and Brick Window. After gluing the bricks onto the background piece, I added some Pumice Stone Effect paste after which I pained it all with Yellow and Blue Acrylic Paints using the Petroleum Jelly technique to achieve the distressed and weathered look. Also added a little bit of stamping and Raw Sienna paint. To finish I dry brushed a little Turquoise Satin Opal Magic Wax onto the raised areas.

On the background of the canvas I did some image transfers...I wanted to create a Garden effect, once you go through the door, one can escape to a little tranquillity!



The trellis part of the Door was embossed with Aged Black Embossing Enamel from Stampendous...There is also a little Rust Paste added.

















The Lamppost was also coloured with Rust Pastes. The inside of the lamp is painted with a little red ink and crackle varnish was added. The Pot and Wild flowers were also painted with various green and yellow paints with some crackle and clear gloss varnish added. 

On the bottom I used the Dusty Attic Stencil, Webbing #2 with Graphite Texture Paste to create a stone effect. All the yellow colouring was done with 13 Arts paints Yellow Amber and Yellow Lemon and Spiced Marmelade Distress Oxide Inks.

These are the products that I have used from the Dusty Attic Webside...
