Dusty Attic with Page Maps! ....And a Chance to win DA goodies!!



Recently the Dusty Attic Design Team was asked to work with Page Maps to work with some of Becky Fleck's beautiful sketches for the August Newsletter! We were each given a sketch to work with and were asked to create using some of our Dusty Attic Laser-cut chippies! The above l/o is what I came up with for the sketch I was provided! I used one of the new Dusty Attic Butterfly chippies for an embellishment. I painted it white and added some rose and chestnut chalk ink to the edges and then just a touch of Stickles glitter glue in Platinum color. I added a tail to the butterfly using the pretty gem flourishes from Zva Creative. Here is a close-up of the embellishment....


I also used 2 other Dusty Attic pieces on this l/o...the bracket flourish at the bottom of the l/o (simply painted white and edged with some chestnut chalk ink (Colorbox, and added a couple of stickon pearls......

And the scallop chip circle frame is another Dusty Attic piece I used. I painted it white, edged it with a little bit of rose chalk ink and then lightly stamped with a script stamp.....(the same one I used on the pink background paper) Here is a close-up pic.....

The papers I used here are some left overs I had from my June LE kit from MCS, the collection is by Girls Paperie, and the alpha's are my favourite alpha stickers from Webster's Pages.

Here is the sketch I was given to work with from Becky Fleck, the format was 8.5" x 11" for the newsletter but I think it could be easily used on a 12x12 page.....

I just love your work Gabi, but seriously how do you do the shading on your chipboard pieces? is it just inked or have you used copic markers? Its just sublime, and i would really love to know how to do it my self.
