Rustic Canvas for Dusty Attic

Hello my scrappy pals 
welcome to my blog
Today I am sharing a Canvas I created for
Dusty Attic.
Very Rustic and Grungy with loads of texture.
This is only the second canvas I have ever created 
and I am finding them lots of fun .

DUSTY ATTIC - Materials used 
Dusty in color 
Hot Chocolate 0923
Forrest 0919
Clear crackle Varnish 

Jumbo cogs 0232
Mini Branches 1121
String Frame set 1181
Wildflowers 11437
ornate corner #13 1137
Elegant Swirl #3 1123

I love to trim my chippies and tuck the pieces under and around
my photo.
by trimming the chippies it also makes them go further
in each project .
for example
the piece along the bottom left side
is trimmed from the ornate corner #13 1137
the remaining section is tucked and layered
around my photo.

try trimming and experimenting with your chippies .

texture and crackle created with texture paste , inks, crackle paste .

all chipboard can be purchased direct from the website .
Dusty Attic
I truly hope I have inspired you in some way .
if you have never created with a canvas, give it a go 
you will be surprised how wonderful it is .

many thanks for dropping by
and happy scrapping to each of you .
see you all soon
and warm hugz from me x

Hi every one and welcome to my blog .
a short post today sharing my discoveries on my daily  exercise  .
While taking my early morning walk I see some 
beautiful little treasures 
happy faces 
Ivy and moss .

rocks and ferns 


finishing my walk with a piping hot Latte 
from our local cafe ..
 the metal tag is by Kelly Rae Roberts .

Two new arty books 

 Sharing a section of my tidy and clean arty space, where I create .
It does get messy, but is very easy to keep clean and tidy .
My space is small but very effective and perfectly arranged for storage
and a beautiful space for me to create .

Some of my treasures and 
the little lady created by Kelly Rae Roberts .
above is a sneak peek at my next Dusty Attic project .
