Album Summer Memories


Hello everyone!


After a short summer break I'm back with a photoalbum 

as memory on beautiful relaxed days.

The sea inspired minialbum  has been equipped with many flaps, pockets 

and other storage possibilities to keep nice mementos. 


Some of the selected MDFs have already been laser engraved in such detail

 that they look very beautiful even unfinished.

Nautical Multi Frame - Lighthouse

  on the cover was primed with white gesso and only the lighthouse 
and wheel were embossed with a special powder (Salted Navy Enamel)

Striped Beach Hut with Flag

were created with a crackle medium and 
finished with acrylic  paints for an old
wheathered look

By your side - Dusty Attic August Moodboard


Hello everyone!



Our monthly Moodboard inspired me to create a sea mixed media layout.

Love the weathered wooden style it fits perfectly to the feeling of salt water,

foamy ocean waves, sunsets on the beach and walks on secluded natural beaches.


I found at  Dusty Attic some beautiful suitable chippies,

such like drift wood, corals and the right frame. 

Chipboards were primed with white gesso and 

highlighted with distress inks in brown shades.

I also used the negatives from driftwood shapes and highlighted this pieces with

 a little bit fine sand from the baltic sea beach.

Mermaid Dreams with Dusty Attic


Hello everyone!


  I was inspired to create a mixed media collage on an oval canvas. 

I used some awesome seaweed and coral chipboards

 and combined this elements with outcasts from moulds.

The beautiful gate served as a frame for a little girl.

Chipboards were created with embossing powder, 

acrylic paint and textured with micro pearls.

Stormy Sea - Mixed Media




I was inspired to create a mixed media sea collage. 

I used as base some mixed media boards and MDF shapes

 by product range from Calico Craft Parts

and combined with cutting dies and moulds. 

Brand new is the crescent moon in various sizes and materials (birch and MDF). 

I played with stencils, textures paste and diluted acrylic paints 

to create an intresting structure on it.
