Hello and a warm welcome to my blog
Time for my Dusty Attic July project 

Today I am sharing another grungy/rustic art journal page .
this was such fun to create
The railway track represents the journey of life 
unknown territory 
is the color of emotion. passion, pleasure and health.
is the color of self-esteem, self-worth, confidence and personal power
is the color of self expression, nervous system, communication, will power and creativity .
 Speaking up for oneself is so essential to feed the soul .

Dusty Attic - July Mood Board

Hello my friends , a very warm welcome to my blog

Today I am sharing my take on the
 for July

I just love these beautiful autumn colors .
it is Winter here in Australia at the moment 
so I loved playing with these 
light colors to brighten up the dull, overcast  days of Winter.

I chose to allow the light green, pale blue to dominate.
The dark brown features at the top and bottom section, 
with tiny splashes of the pale fawn on the metal embellie . 


some of the chippies are trimmed
e.g. the film strip ..
 I have only used the edges of the strips here
painted and layered on my embellie cluster .

Dusty Attic Materials used
Crackle Paint DA 0900

View finder DA 1081
Mini Branches #2 DA 1121
Film Strip : DA0934
Circle Frame set : DA 0490
Ornamental Trim set :DA 1347

the ornamental trim which is tucked under the right 
side of the pic, has been trimmed 
before adhering to my LO . 

 blooms, beads, metal, paint , chippies and stitching .

a mix of chippies, metal, fabric, and paint 
I adore adding crackle paint to metal embellies and the DA chippies, 
creating a rich finish.

 thanks so much for popping by and taking a look 
at my work 
I hope you are inspired to have a play with these colors 
and some yummy chipboard pieces .
happy scrapping until next time 
big hugz to each of you xox
