Let's go on a Road Trip - Dusty Attic September Moodboard

Hello friends,

Today I am back to feature a layout created with the September moodboard.

Love these neutral colours - and this is so soft and calming. Here is my layout inspired by the moodboard.
When I received our DT box with the suitcase chipboard (DA2958) in it, I knew I had to use these somewhere on a layout. They even come with the extra buckles and straps to build up a 3D effect. So I chose a photo (found on Pinterest) with a suitcase so I could use the chipboard suitcase. I have also used some mushrooms among my flowers.
The flowers are all layered and the spring vines were added to the flower clusters (DA2791 - I used two)
I thought the title "let's go on a road trip" was very fitting. I have then added some stars the Tabs and Starbursts chipboard (DA2946).

These are the products I have used:

Remember to enter the monthly challenge using the moodboard as inspiration, post your entry to the Dusty Fanattics facebook page where you have a chance to win one of two $50 worth of chipboard.

Till next time,

Autumn Leaves - 49 and Market

Hello lovelies

I am back today with the a new collection - not only is the name of the collection just awesome, but so are the colours - Vintage Artistry In the Leaves Collection

The base of my layout is the reverse side of the Vintage Artistry In the Leaves Journal Card paper. I have left the name strip on the bottom and trimmed the equivalent off the top of the page. The photo is matted with pieces from the In the Leaves Ephemera pack, the frame over the photo is also from the Ephemera pack. These were distressed and layered and added to the centre of the page on foam tape.
The flowers used are the Country Blooms in Ginger and then layering the In the Leaves foliage leaves - these are acetate and in order to get them lifted, I added foam tape under these.  I have also added the word rose gold word clips "memories" and the shape clips "arrow" 
There is a butterfly already printed on the frame from the Ephemera pack plus there is a single butterfly in the same pack, which I have glued and raised on the frame, as they are the same size. I added some Sprinkles to the leaves. The Autumn Leaves title is from the Washi tape pack - one side has die cut shapes - which is how I was able t add the title to the page. 
I have also included some of the In the Leaves rub-ons to the page.

This collection is beautiful and I just love the rich colours. I hope you enjoy it too.

Thanks for visiting the blog today.

Best wishes,

Discover - Dusty Attic

Greetings Dusty Attic fans,

Here we are in September - and for us in NZ, marks spring - yay, bring on long summer days!

Today I would like to share my project created for Dusty Attic for September. I went with crearting a boy layout for a change from my usual flowery layouts.

I had such fun putting this layout together - the tools and the trucks are just so adorable! I started first with using an ink and blending tool to add a stencil pattern on the page. This is the DA1322 circuit stencil. I then stamped with a script stamp over the stencilling. The chipboard pieces were first coloured using metallique waxes, using a variety of colours to create a rusty effect.
The layered bolts (DA2880) are just fabulous - and these are designed to be layered to look like the real thing - I just love these.
Aren't these little tools (DA2878) just gorgeous - I did paint these in two colours - the handles in a blue and the tool part in metallique iron, and then waxed over these. These screwdrivers even have the different ends for flat screws and star screws! I also added some cars and a truck from DA2884 and DA2945.

I then ended off with the title "discover" and adding some splatters on the page.
These are the products I have used

49 & Market September Sketch Challenge

Hello there,

It's a new month, and a new month means a new sketch Challenge over at 49 & Market. And I so loved this month's challenge - I hope you love it as much as I did.

And this is the sketch:

I turned the sketch once anti-clockwise and did my take on it from there.

The base of the paper is the bonus sheet included on the back of the cover of the Vintage Artistry Beached 12 x 12 Collection. I then did some stamping with a script stamp down the sides and through the centre before I began putting my layout together.
I have used the laser cut flowers and leaves from the Vintage Artistry Blush Collection and combined these in layers with the Royal Spray Passion Pink paper flowers and the leaves that come from the same flower pack
I have also added Blush Wishing Bubbles and Baubles among the leaves and flowers. 
I then added rub-ons from the Vintage Artistry Essentials rub-on pack - using the splatter like ones and the postage stamps. I then rubbed these around the elements and also on top of each other to create an effective background.
I then brushed white paint over the edges of the flowers and added some beads to finish off.

Adventure Awaits - 49 and Market

Hello 49 and Market Fans

Hope you are all keeping well and safe. I am back on the blog today using a wide variety of products to create my outdoors layout. This is another layout of my daughter over at Washpen Falls on the South Island here in New Zealand.

The base page is the reverse side of the Vintage Artistry Shore Tritons Shell paper. The photos are framed with the frames from the laser cut sheet in the Vintage Artistry Shore 12x12 paper collection.
I have used the Vintage Artistry Hike More ephemera viewer discs behind the photos, cutting the large one in half added under the photo frames, and adding the "wraps" from the laser sheet in the Vintage Artistry Anywhere around the viewer discs and the photo frames

The flower cluster is a mix of  Royal Spray Olive and Marble paper flowers, as well as the Majestic Bouquet Marble flowers.
I have added a pair of clips from the Vintage Artistry Beached Paradise clips - to enhance the outdoor theme.
I have added in elements from the Vintage Artistry Hike More wishing bubbles and trinkets and Hike More chipboard stickers
Torn bits of strips of Vintage Artistry Essentials Washi Tape have been added to the edges of the paper and adding on the Roughly Sewn rub-ons over this, plus adding some of the rub-ons roughly sewn under the flowers and photos

The title "Adventure Awaits" is from the Hike More Ephemera. I have cut up one of the wraps and used the "knot" piece to the edge of the tag.

Thanks for visiting the blog today.

Take care,

Totally Amazing - Dusty Attic

Hello everyone

Back on the blog today with my layout created inspired off the August moodboard

And here is my layout 

This is my gorgeous niece - probably a good 5 or so years ago. 
I have used a paper from 49 and Market Vintage Artistry in Lilac and fussy cut the flowers from the 8"x8" Irrevocable Beauty pack. 
First I applied black gesso to all my chipboard pieces. Once dry I brushed over the pieces with Metallique waxes.

I began my layout using the Brick Wall DA2871 chippie - with the flat side under the photo and then adhering my photo on top of these.

Adding the flowers and then adding the DA0335 small scroll - these were cut up to fit with the layout. I layered the fussy flowers and tucked the mini lace border DA2527

I have added a smaller key to my heart DA1214 with ribbon between the flowers

I have also added a definition "delight" DA2942 - there are a wonderful selection of definitions - and these are really super to enhance layouts 

Once all the flowers and elements were complete, I added the title "totally AMAZING" DA2039

Come take part in the August moodboard challenge and enter your project on the Dusty FANattics facebook page for your chance to win one of two $50 vouchers of Dusty Attic chipboard.
