Graphic 45 
By the Sea

Hello dear G45ers! 
Sharing a 3D paper Anchor featuring
 the gorgeous By the Sea Deluxe
 Collector's Edition.

I love this collection, one of my
 many favourite Graphic 45 collections.
 I adore all beach/sea themed
 projects. I created this piece with the
 help of my Silhouette, cutting dies,
 flowers, gauze and string.

Herewith the Supplies and Instructions you 
may use to recreate such a project:

Other Supplies:
Silhouette Cut Files:
Anchor by Silhouette Design ID 38088
 and assembly instructions:
This shape consists of a top and 
base anchor shape and 11 perimeter
 strips. The perimeter strips can be 
attached to the anchor base by folding
 down the triangles and gluing them
 along the edge of the shape.
 The perimeter strips are attached
 to each other with tabs on each end.
 Each tab is marked with a number that
 indicates which tab it is to be paired with. 
These numbers are visible on the
 file only and will not be cut into the shape.
 Start with the strip with tabs marked with
 a '1' & '10' and attach it to the 
outside of the eye of the anchor. 
Next, attach the strip marked with 
a '1' & '2' to the anchor, making sure to
 glue both '1' tabs together. Continue
 to work around the perimeter of the
 anchor attaching paired tabs until you've
 returned to the beginning and
 attached the '10' tabs together. The 
remaining strip is attached to the 
interior of the eye of the anchor and the
 '0' tabs attach to themselves. After all
 the perimeter strips are glued to 
the base, fold the triangles in and 
attach the top with glue.

Dusty Attic 
Moodboard Inspiration 
Mixed Media Canvas
'Love Completely'

Hello dear Dusty FANattics!
Love the beautiful colours and tones
of this months mood board.
Absolutely fabulous! Here is my take
 on the July challenge.

Inspired by the these lovely colours,
 I created a mixed media canvas and
decided to go for the softer tones of 
this mood board featuring the gorgeous
 Prima Marketing Midnight Garden 
collection and lots of gorgeous Dusty Attic 
chipboard. I altered this piece with my 
favourite Finnabair mediums and Prima
  stencil and embellishments. I painted 
the canvas with Impasto paint in Linen.
 I layered my photo (via Pinterest) onto
 lots of die-cut pieces. I painted the 
chipboard pendant and and iron accent
 with metallique paint in coral reef and
 the rest of the chipboard pieces I heat 
embossed using different colours of 
embossing powders. I adorned my photo
 cluster with some gorgeous Prima flowers.
