A Little Layout for The Dusty Attic

Hello! Today I'm here with you to share a little layout I have created using the gorgeous Dusty Attic Chipboard.

Thank you to my dear friend Louise Nelson for allowing me to use her photo. It's perfect xx

I was inspired by the April moodboard. I had been playing around with my gel press plate and making some prints and this one appeared as a final press. I just loved it and had to use it somehow. The I remembered the moodboard and BAM! it all just fell into place.

I painted the Daisies with some Bisque Dusty Colour so they would seem as if they were coming out of the photo. I gave them a light coating of gesso before hand so when i added a little bit of water to the paint, the white peaked through.

I wanted to create a little bit of interest on the background, but not too much as the print from my Gel plate was very interesting in it's own right. The Dusty Attic Stencil "Creative Script" was just perfect for this. It begins it's sentiment with "There is beauty in simplicity". It is just perfect for this layout!

I finished the layout off with a little title, some gold wire for the border and a little bit of hand drawing so as to emphasise the importance of embracing imperfection.

I hope you like my layout and it inspires you to use your chippy as an extension of your photo like I have. it is heaps cool ..... I'll definitely be trying to do it again! See you all again next time.

The only artist you should ever compare yourself to is the one you were yesterday.
