~Dusty Attic Layout~

Hi Everyone!! I am here to share a layout I created using Dusty Attic chippies.  I am excited to say that I just got in my newest DT pack and I will get to show that off next month!!  Here is my last layout for November.  This is my 15 year old daughter and I just love working with neutrals, so I really liked how this page turned out.
 This is my little ribbon trick.  Just use your tape runner along the backside and scrunch as you lay it down on your page.
 These flowers are so easy and simple, but I love how they seem to make a statement on the page.
 For this page I used the little clock chippies from the mini clock faces DA0717 and just did a quick brush over with my brown ink pad.

Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!

~All New Chox Inx by Donna Salazar~

Donna's Giveaway!!

Welcome to the Launch Party for Donna's new Mix’d Media Inx CHOX!

There are 8 colors in this product release:
Driftwood (tan), Sparrow (brown), Butternut (gold), Petals (pink), Sage (green), Bluejay (blue), Pomegranate (burgundy), and Midnight (black). And just like the Mix'd Media Inx, the containers have a flexible base (for a comfy grip) and a clear lid with a lip that lets you stack the pads.
You can also get the re-inkers in all 8 colors.
These new CHOX are fast drying, have LOADS of vibrant color, are great for stamping, edge distressing, coloring, and can be used in layers for blending colors (watch the technique video for day 1). To give you an idea of how much pigment is in these inks, you can actually mix the re-inkers with a matte acrylic medium to use instead of or with acrylic paint!

Be sure to visit Donna's Blog from Nov 27th - Nov 29th for projects, ideas, technique videos and PRIZES!

You can also check out these blogs for more projects and techniques as well!!

These are the pics of the prizes Donna is giving away each day below:
  Day1  Day2  Day3
Each day of our party Donna will have TWO winners! Each prize will be a Mix'd Media Inx Chox pad and the matching re-inker. To be entered into our random drawings, leave a comment and add your name to the inlinkz on Donna's blog for each day of our party! The winners will be announced during the first week of December on Donna's Blog.

For my project I created a little wall hanging using the new Chox inx as well as some of Donna's other awesome products!!  I drew this little girl with her balloon.  Then for the background I used Donna's canvas board and went to town on it using her Chox Inx, regular Inx, Smooch Spritz and her super cute little mushroom stamp!!
 For the sky I coated my background in Bluejay Chox inx and then topped it with a mix of molding paste and Smooch Sea Breeze Spritz.  Then I used my finger to swirl it around.
 I love this little stamp.  I stamped this image on separate paper and then colored it in.  The rocks are made of gray mulberry paper that I choxed around the edges.  For the grass I coated the background with Chox Sage and blended it with Evergreen Smooch Spritz. 
 I used a variety of Chox, Regular Inx, and Smooch Spritz to create the sunset.  Lots of swirls and blending.
Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!! Below is a list of products and links that I used for this project!!

~Dusty Attic and My New Addiction~

Hello Everyone!!  Not sure if I will be posting again until after Thanksgiving, so I wanted to wish all my USA friends a Very Happy Thanksgiving!!  Today I am posting my November Dusty Attic ATC and a Card using Dusty Chippies as well!!  The theme for the ATC's this month is "myself"!! My new addiction is drawing faces and people!! I have been practicing and I am having a ton of fun with it!!  Of course, I am no Picasso, but who cares right? LOL
Here is my ATC and my cartoon drawing of myself!!  I used one of the mini corner #2 DA0553  for this.
 This is a little card I made.  No specific theme to this one.  I drew the girl resting on her hands.  My inspiration comes from books and art I see here and there.  I don't copy exactly, but I have been experimenting with ideas I've seen.  I'm still in that practicing stage and eventually I would like to find a signature style just my own.   The chippies I used for this card are the brick wall DA0316, grass cluster #1 DA0660, and the mini birds #2 DA0724.

 The November Sketch!
This next project was done using items from the Creative Add-On and the Color Add-On.  This is an art journal that is made by Ranger.  It comes bare and ready to decorate!!  This is my front cover. 
 This was done using molding paste, Dylusions spray, and Dylusions templates. 

 This was my first attempt of drawing a face.  I need more practice, but I was happy with how this one turned out.
 Back of the Journal.
