Fun Times - Dusty Attic

We took my son to Ottawa, Canada, during the Fall, when he was just 3 years old. He couldn't believe how many leaves there were to play in - we don't get that many in the Calgary area and certainly not large maple leaves like that. So much fun for a toddler!

I used a variety of chalk inks and splattered Dusty paints (pesto, forrest and bisque) on the large ivy corner chipboard.

Here is a close-up. I used Dusty pesto paint and clear crackle vanish on the love this arrow title chipboard.

Again I used Dusty pesto paint and then clear crackle vanish on the chipboard mini words.
