Glam up Your Projects with Trinkets & Dusty Attic Chippies!!

So I've been wanting to scrap some photo's from when my youngest daughter went on a field trip to the African Lion Safari a few years ago.  Then I got the coolest collection (Bo Bunny Zoology) and the coolest Chippies to get this project done!!  As soon as I saw these Dusty Attic Peacock Feather I fell in love!!   ....The focus for this layout was for Bo Bunny Trinkets, they are those pretty little 'jewelled pieces' that Bo Bunny makes now to coordinate with all their collections.

I also finally picked up some Gesso to experiment with!  Let me say....I'm still experimenting.  Unlike a few of my talented friends, you know who you are (Jeni, Finn).....I have a really hard time with glimmer mists!  I tried using some on this page but just did not get the rich results I was looking for.  In the end what I ended up doing was adding my embellishments to the page, giving them a light brushing with Gesso.  Then instead of spritzing with a mist I just used some metalic paint (in this case a blue color) and dry brushed over the blooms and embellishments....(dry brushing is when you put paint on your brush and dab off the excess and then brush on the leftover on your project).  Then I lightly brushed the embellishments with a bit more Gesso.



For the Dusty Attic Chipboard Feather DA#0568, I wanted immitate the look of a real peacock freather.  Here are a few steps to create this look....
1.  First I painted the piece with some Folk Art Metalic Paint in blue/green color and painted part of the head of the peakcock feather with a metalic bronze color.

2.  Then I added some black glitter glue over the green painted finish. I used the Michaels Store brand glitter glue called 'Studio'....I believe Stickles would make a charcoal or black glitter glue too.

3.  For the head of the feather I added some Lime Green Stickles over the blue paint, some Stardust Stickles over the gold paint and some bright blue Stickles in the very center......above is what the finished design will look like.
