Dusty Attic December Challenge

Now that Christmas is over for another year and 
I have a few days of holidays, I managed to get one more 
creative piece done before the end of the year.

Today I have created a piece inspired by the 
December challenge at Dusty Attic.

I have created a dream catcher, using an upcycled gift box.
I was inspired by the gorgeous pastel colours of the mood board, especially the mint, pink, yellow and silver. 

I started with a white box and I painted the front with black gesso (and some glitter) and painted the sides of the box with Kaisercraft 'Spearmint' acrylic paint.

 I've used a Dusty Attic String Frame chipboard piece for the frame of my dream catcher. I have coloured this with Colour Blast Colour Paste in 'Envy'.

I've used a Dusty Attic 'Blueprint - Imagine' chipboard piece for my title. I coloured it with Dylusions paint in Peony Blush and then added a layer of Glossy Accents to make it shine.

I can't get enough of these Uniquely Creative Feather dies - perfect for die-cutting my feathers from several different patterned papers.
To add layers to my feathers I used the negative piece from the Dusty Attic 'Boho Feathers' chipboard set as a stencil to paint in some feathers underneath. 

Lastly I added some flowers and some paint 'strings'.
 I also added lots of splatters using watered-down gesso, Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Cubes and Colour Shimmer Spray.

I just loved how it turned out.

Scrap The Boys Dec challenge - DT share

This month at Scrap The Boys the challenge is an inspiration image.
There is so much to take from this 
- the rainbow colours, the Christmas theme etc.

I was inspired by the rainbow colours and the triangle shape, 
and this is what I came up with

To make my background I cut out a heap of triangles from different coloured cardstock, drew a border on each then folded up the edges. I have to admit it took about 2 days to make all of these triangles, but I think the effect is worth it! I have used up the leftovers in my art journal.

I added some Kraft paper and coloured papers under my photos, and added a Charm's Creation embellie to continue the triangle theme.
I used some puffy stickers for my title.

Scrapbooking Top 50 Aus Dec challenge - DT share

Sadly, this is my last DT project for 
I've had a great time over the last 2 years on this fab team!

So let's take a look at the December challenge-

Isn't it gorgeous!!??

And here is my DT page-

I've used a Kinder Kreations word for my title, and heat embossed it with Colour Blast 'Tangareen Dream' Colour Embossing Powder.

I stamped some feathers and coloured them with acrylic paint and water colours. I cut these out and then heat embossed with the stamp again to create the white outline.
I also stamped and coloured some leaves directly onto the Kraft base to add some depth.

I finished with some splatters of course!
