Love *The Dusty Attic*

  

Hello everyone! 

I am loving the new Lacey Corners chipboard design from The Dusty Attic.  It is probably my favorite of the January 2013 release. 


I painted the chipboard using acrylic paints from The Dusty in Colour collection.  I painted the entire piece using Storm Cloud, then I used a thin paint brush to add white accents using Navajo White paint.  I finished my design using Viva Decor's Pearl Pens in Ice White and Rose.  I also painted my corrugated cardboard using Navajo White with sprinkles of white glitter.




Here I painted my butterflies using Navajo White and Dusty Pink acrylic paints.  Once the paint was dry, I added a layer of clear crackle varnish to achieve the cracked glass look on the wings of my butterfly.
