Gabrielle translated just the right mood as she created her page layout using just the perfect paper and embellishments for a great mixed media look.
Using several chipboard pieces from The Dusty Attic, Gabrielle painted all the pieces white to start then used a variety of inks and paints to lightly color the chippies.
Adding white and blue flowers plus leaves from The Dusty Attic gives this page a finished look.
She then painted the little bird house with Navajo White and inked with some brown chalk. She added a coat of the DA Crackle medium. For the shell she mixed a little sand into some Gesso to add some texture to it. Lastly, a little sea glass finished her look of the beach.
For the corner chippie she did a little script stamping along with adding the Dusty Attic Crackle medium on top of it. What a gorgeous layout. Thank you so much Gabrielle for sharing such a wonderful inspiration with us.
