Dusty Attic December Challenge

Now that Christmas is over for another year and 
I have a few days of holidays, I managed to get one more 
creative piece done before the end of the year.

Today I have created a piece inspired by the 
December challenge at Dusty Attic.

I have created a dream catcher, using an upcycled gift box.
I was inspired by the gorgeous pastel colours of the mood board, especially the mint, pink, yellow and silver. 

I started with a white box and I painted the front with black gesso (and some glitter) and painted the sides of the box with Kaisercraft 'Spearmint' acrylic paint.

 I've used a Dusty Attic String Frame chipboard piece for the frame of my dream catcher. I have coloured this with Colour Blast Colour Paste in 'Envy'.

I've used a Dusty Attic 'Blueprint - Imagine' chipboard piece for my title. I coloured it with Dylusions paint in Peony Blush and then added a layer of Glossy Accents to make it shine.

I can't get enough of these Uniquely Creative Feather dies - perfect for die-cutting my feathers from several different patterned papers.
To add layers to my feathers I used the negative piece from the Dusty Attic 'Boho Feathers' chipboard set as a stencil to paint in some feathers underneath. 

Lastly I added some flowers and some paint 'strings'.
 I also added lots of splatters using watered-down gesso, Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Cubes and Colour Shimmer Spray.

I just loved how it turned out.
