Spring, Easter Homedecor Inspiration with MDF shapes

 

Welcome everyone!

 

Winter has returned with snow and ice
and the start of spring has been postponed indefinitely.
 
To counteract the gloomy mood and the lack of sunshine,
 a new spring project can helps.
 
Today's theme is Altered Art,
I used a simple swing made from a wooden branch and a wire hanger as a base
and created a hanging spring decoration.
 
You can hang it on a small window, under a shelf (as seen here)
 or even on the Easter shrub,
between Easter eggs, an old German tradition.
 


 

used MDF shapes

 

Running Hare

Bluebells - MDF Floral Wood Shape Style 47

Ivy Leaf Garland

Tulip Stem

 

 
All the MDF shapes were painted with acrylic paint,
The blue bells were turned into a hyazinth,  
blue became yellow, maybe a new species.😀

 Thanks for your visit!
 
 I hope you find inspiration!

A Dogs Life - January Moodboard Dusty Attic

 

Welcome everyone!

 

Dusty Attic's January Moodboard invites you to create
 an amazing project of your own choice,
it shows beautiful warm natural colors.
 

I was inspired to create a natural mixed media layout with our darlings, the shelties.

I used some of the awesome dog chipboards, which where primed 

with white or black gesso, always a very good base when you plan to paint

 with acrylic colours. On the parts with black primer, 

I continued to work with dry brush technique,

 used white gesso and green gold metallic paint.

The natural looking chipboards were painted with two shades 

of green acrylic paint, for the wheat I used green, gold and white, 

ears became more vivid with micro pearls.

 

 

 

 









 

 

used Dusty Attic chipboards and stencils

??? Please, can somebody wake up Spring ???
 
😀😀😀 
 
 
After Christmas and New Year's Eve it could be spring for me, 
the older you get the less you like winter and 
our temperatures really have something of early spring at the moment. 
 
Snowdrops are starting to bloom, which gives hope.


 
 

I was inspired to create a canvas with a birdhouse, 
Therefore I used a  MDF Block House Kit,
I added also a tree trunk, made with paper straws and mossy birchbark.

Nothern Lights with Dusty Attic

 

Welcome everyone!

 

Welcome into the new year 2023, 

wish you a year full of fun and joy in creative work !


It's wintertime here, cold, snow and ice have us again fully in the grip. 
but it can be also a very special time, in the high north of Europe
 you can now discover
 Northern Lights, they change the landscape into a magic winterland.
 I  have not seen them myself yet, but they fascinate me.
 
I was inspired to create a mixed media canvas as new wall decoration 
for a child room.
 In the dark starry sky they shine especially bright
 and the little penguin marvels at these great wonders of nature.
 
 

 

Nothern Lights were painted with acrylic and metallic paints,
love to combine several techniques with the classical scrapbooking style, 
it's always very exciting.
At Dusty Attic you can find always a lot of inspiring chippies, 
which can be magnificently combined for all kinds of techniques and ideas,
I just love to try out new ideas and surprise others with them.
