This is a DT layout for Dusty Attic and Vilda Stamps. This layout is inspired by the bottles of Color Wash that Tim had sent me a few months ago and a colour palette at The Color Room. I wanted to have some fun with it and create this layout. The Dusty Attic chippies that I've used on this layout are wings, dress form and some cogs. I've also used tons of stamps from Vilda Stamps on it.

Here are some details on it.
I've covered the chipboard cogs with gesso and later with distressed stickles.

On the chipboard wings, I've used some Magic Mesh to create the texture on it and on the dress form, I've used some scraps of canvas.

Hope you all like this artsy interpretation of mine using Color Wash! Go wild and try having some artsy fun yourself!

A real eye catcher! Love the black and white photo. Despite the amount of decoration and details, this page looks so minimalistic, mostly because of the colour scheme. Brilliant!


On a l'habitude de voir tes pages très colorées mais le blanc, tu le maîtrises aussi bien. bravo Irène

Love the bursts of color wash on this otherwise soft page! The dress and all of the elements are wonderful. How do you get the mesh to stick w/o it ending up sticky? I've never figured out how to do that! :)
