Hello there everyone
today I am sharing my July layout for Dusty Attic 
Dusty Attic has such a wonderful selection of delightful chippies, blooms and paint.
I love to paint, alter, trim and distress the chippies .
Blooms and nature have so many exquisite layers , textures and color
I decided to create a background to mimic 
these elements of nature .
My background has many many layers 
I began by priming my paper with white gesso 
then splashed on some Tim Holtz stain - spun sugar and Victorian Velvet,
 added texture paste with a mask, 
 more gesso , more stain , more gesso .
layer upon layer until I was happy .
MY TIP .... just keep adding layer over layer until happy .
(make sure they are thin layers) 

how beautiful are these ... Wattle blossom : DA0752
I cut them , used pesto paint ...Dusty in Colour Pesto : DA0918
then swiped on some white by dry brushing with Dusty in Colour Navajo White : DA 0903

I love to use these little numbers ..Mini Number grid : DA1073..
they are great to trim and cut to whatever size desired 

Dusty Attic materials used .
