Dusty Attic November Inspiration – Breathtaking

Hey Hey Attic Lovers! Welcome back!!

I have a new Layout this month. I have had this image for a while and I really wanted to find something to capture the wonder. Well,  thanks to some Chipboard designed by the lovely Jennifer at Dusty Attic I could finally do it justice.
I was really naughty this month and I was so caught up in the project…  I forgot to take progress shots. I will make it up to you.. Promise!
I used every product under the sun playing with my Chip board and stencil. Each one has been decorated differently.  I find that it creates a lot of interest and keeps drawing my eye back to look for more. Shows how versatile chip board really is. 
To start I used my Damask stencil to lift the background with some shimmery paste. While that was drying, I used my chalk paints for Breathtaking and my Monarch Butterfly applying them with a sponge. On the butterfly I added layer upon layer to create a fade and then dazzled them with a little wax.

For my Tea Leaves I used the chalk paint as a base and used my (sadly discontinued) Dusty Crackle Glaze to finish them off. I did this in another project called Brotherly Love and fell in love with the effect. You can check it out by following the link.

I used gilding flakes on the Medallions in a gorgeous Verdi Gris. The beautiful Paisley Flourishes (So Boho) were done in a metallic paint. I was sure to not apply it smoothly as I really wanted some texture in there so I could highlight them with my Waxes.. (Again)

I finished it off with some Flowers in Bloom, Sisal and some of my (newest) favourite boho mandala stamps.
