A warm welcome to my blog
 today I am sharing my take on the March sketch challenge .
the stunning sketch created by Nadia Cannizzo 
 To go to the Dusty Attic blog 

today I chose a simple color palette.
blue hues with white and a touch of black and green.
lots of stamping and masking with gesso . 
The sensational photo by Tara of 
 this cluster is made up of butterflies, altered metal flower,
and of course Dusty Attic Chipboard.
painted with
Dusty in Colour Navajo White : DA0903
Dusty in Colour Pesto : DA0918
Dusty in Colour Clear Crackle Varnish: DA0900

 the chipboard is trimmed into four separate pieces
and scattered around the page .
one piece is included with the cluster of butterflies and metal elements.
the image below shows the chipboard cut in two to frame the corner .
the papers are Maja Design Summer Vintage Basics Collection .

my title - altered with Dusty Pesto paint and crackle Varnish .
