Dusty Attic January Moodboard Inspriation

We got our first snow here in Slovenia a while ago. So it first felt somehow strange to be making a summer project. But there are places where it is summer now. And one of those places is Australia, the home of the gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboards. I've never been to Australia and would love to visit once. It's one of the countries on the very top of my list to see. And it was actually really nice to make a summer project in the middle of the winter, dreaming about a warm summer days.

So in the atmosphere of dreaming about a warm summer day somewhere in Australia in the middle of a cold and snowy winter days I decided to alter a suitcase, using many of the chipboards from the new and older releases. I hope you'll like it!

“Blooming Garden” Altered Box and Money Gift Envelope

Hello again dear friends. Here I am again with my first Graphic 45 inspiration in this year. I decided to
use one of the gorgeous Graphic 45 collections that I haven’t had the opportunity to work with yet -
the Flutter Collection. It is simply amazing. I altered an ATC G45 Box and made a Blooming Garden
with a Water Fountain. This beautiful Box is perfect for a gift to someone you love and cherish, so I also made a Money Gift Envelope to go along. Hope you'll like my project and it brings you some inspiration! <3

Finnabair's New Metal frames

Hello dear friends,

I have another project to share with you from the upcoming new Finnabair release. For all of those who love altering objects, this release will be perfect! There are several new metal frames coming in shops and I absolutely adore them. One of them that I received early to try out is this gorgeous Birdhouse. I altered it into a House for an Owl, using warm autumn tones. I used several art alchemy paints and rust paste in combination with new waxes and mica powders. All these will be soon available in your favourite stores! Hope you'll like them like I do!

I also used several amazing Dusty Attic chipboards for this project. I love these chippies! they are perfect for every mixed media project. They are sturdy and available in all these amazing shapes. You can find them in their online store:

New Unicorn Paste and waxes from Finnabair

Hi my dear friends,

I'm sure you've allready seen the new release from Prima by Finnabair? It is AMAZING! I've had the honours and joy to try of both allready and I'm totally totally in love! The new Unicorn paste is a must, specially for all who like to create dreamy and magical projects. It is easy to apply and has a transparent finish with lots of sparkle You can apply it on top of every color it suits you or even mixed it with some colors or mica powders to create your own unique paste. And the new waxes are stunning too! They have added pigment inside, which makes them really special and gives them good coverage! I love them and the new colors are so so beautiful! Oh and not even mentioning... they smell absolutely delicious! Both Unicorn paste and new waxes are an absolute MUST HAVE for all who love enjoying in Mixed Media art. I'm sure you'll love them to bits.

I've played with them a bit and made this beautiful Unicorn out of a Horse, with a sleigh carrying an important message from Finnabair Art Daily release: "Quit hiding your magic. The world is ready for you!".

Dream moments to Remember

Hello dear friends,

I'm very excited to share with you my Dusty Attic inspiration for the month of January. I was always in love with these gorgeous Dusty Attic Dreamcatchers and it felt perfect for the first month of the year to use them on my planner. This is the time when we analize our past year, make plans and dream sweet dreams for the year to come. But it is also important not to forget that it is the small everyday moments that count most and make our lives rich.

I used few of my favourite Dusty Attic chipboards in the combination with AB Studio papers "Dreamland". I covered the big Dusty Attic Dreamcatcher with Finnabair Dusty Rose Impasto paint and on top of it with two Texture Fantasy Rust Pastes "Taupe Rose" and "Cream". On the background paper I used beautiful Dusty Attic Distressed Diamonds stencil. I couldn't avoid using also the perfect Dusty Attic quote from Quoted Sentiments collection. It fitted perfectly.

I added some stamping and some white splashes with diluted white acrylic paint. I love the effect it gives to the project.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you liked my project and it inspired you to dream and to create something beautiful! I wish to you an amazing Year 2019.

Hugs, Aleksandra
