Hello my scrappy friends , hope you are all well
Today I am sharing with you my take on the delightful sketch
created by the very talented Nadia Cannizzo 
CLICK HERE for more info on the Dusty Attic Blog
just a little reminder .
Dusty Attic now has a linky on the side bar of the blog
where you can download your beautiful projects for the challenge .
cant wait to see them .

This page is inspired by Nature
 and Dusty Attic has the perfect chippies to showcase my photo.
I just love this Grass Border #1 DA0659


Once again I have used a photograph of nature,
taken on one of our many road trips around Austraalia .
my BackGround is created with a mask and moulding paste.
random stamping and stitching .
the chippies are altered using DA pesto paint, 
and a lttle Rusty Hinge distress paint on the grass heads. 
Finishing off with DA crackle paint and a few random swipes of gesso .
I really love how this worked, you know what I mean sometimes art just flows !!
I have happy memories about this trip .

  16. I don't know how I got so far behind in all my commenting :( My life is in absolutely chaos at the moment and I am even struggling to meditate. So much going on and I am trying so hard to make some sense of it all. I have stepped down from ALL my DT's as from the end of the month and taken a break from CSI till August so that I can try and get back on track. I want to take some time to visit my fave blogs and crafters and learn some more ... You are one of my teachers :) love this gentle calming layout so much. Thank you for being you xx
