Smile - Dusty Attic

Hello Dusty Attic fans

Today I have drawn the inspiration for my layout off the colours of the September moodboard
And here is my take on the moodboard with a photo of my daughter
I started first preparing my page with clear gesso, and then stencilled the paper with the Dusty Attic Burlap stencil. Once this was dry, I added some Dusty in Colour Cranberry paint watered down and also added Tim Holtz Dusty Concord ink also watered down through the textured paste. The dusty attic chipboard was all painted with Dusty in Colour Cranberry, Raisin, Sugar Plum and faded denim paint.
I painted the frame, added the photo and then mounted with foam tape, and then I added the wildflowers painted with faded denim before layering the flowers on top of these.
I then added some fussy cut flowers
The title was painted with Raisin and added

Memories to last a life time

Hello lovely fans!

Today I would like to feature a layout I recently created for a class I taught here in New Zealand for Creative Adventures Downunder. I really enjoyed putting the layout together and it so wonderful to work with such awesome products both 49 and Market and dusty Attic and that really helps tremendously putting a layout together. And here is the layout:


I have used the 49 and Market Serendipitous Mini Collection, to create this layout. Cutting down the Misty Breeze paper and adhered to the After the Rain paper, and then added clear gesso. Once dried, I added some stencilling with texture paste. I then painted the mystic frame and the ornate pendant chippies with Dusty Attic Dusty in Colour fine silver paint.
I then cut the Mystic Frame in half and placed it in such a way under the photo that the flourishes were a feature on the outside of the photo.
I then started layering 49 and Market Country in Blooms Punch starting with my anchor flower about 1 inch from the bottom of the photo and building it up from there.
Included in the layering of the flowers, are all the gorgeous laser cut shapes from the laser sheet (all from the Serendipitous collection) - leaves, lantern, butterflies, cogs and flowers. The wings of the butterfly and the dragonfly have been covered with stickles.
I have also fussy cut the flowers and leaves from the left over piece of the 'Misty Breeze' - the piece with the flower is tucked under the photo and then 3D'd with another flower off the laser cut sheet. I have added the ornate jewel Dusty Attic chipboard between the flowers and added Dusty Attic pearls to the chain part of the ornate pendants.

I have then finished off adding some mini art stones to the flowers and randomly over the page. The title is from the bar code strip off the 'Misty Breeze' page. I have also added some ink splatters and ink blending from Tim Holtz Dusty Concord distress ink.
The photo is of my lovely daughter who was getting her own camera ready to take some shots and was captured just at the perfect moment.


Thank you for visiting!

Cherish - Dusty Attic Mood Board

Hello there!

Here is my take in the lovely moodboard for August. Gosh I just love this moodboard ... so inviting, I would just love to be there .....
 Here is my take on the moodboard inspired by the colours
I have used some of the new release chippies - they are just so gorgeous!
I have started off with clear gesso on the page. Once this as dry, I stencilled the background with texture paste using the Dusty Attic Knitting Stencil. The background chipboard is from the Polaroid Frame Set #1. I have used the outside frame and one of the slides with the cherish word. The photo was then placed on this frame.
I used Creative Expression Gilding Polish to colour all my chipboard. I first done the frame and placed this on top of the photo before I added fussy cut flowers.
Once this was all placed. I the tucked in the Tropical Foliage #6 under the flowers, and added some Blooms #3. And I just had to add the gorgeous little mini shells - they are just so cute.
I finished off the page adding some art stones and adding some ink around the edges of the design.

I love my Cat - Dusty Attic

Hello everyone!

Oh my goodness! I am just loving all the new dog and cat chipboard releases - and I have used the new cat chipboard to do my project for you today.

I have used some Mintay Berrylicious paper to create my layout, tearing the 2nd paper added to the base page. The chipboard has all been painted in white first, and then once dry, have added Dusty in Colour paints and painted these (Watered down). Once these were dry I then sanded them.
I started with attaching the photo to the frame (isn't this frame just adorable with all the cat icons?), then arranging matting papers behind. These were then adhered to the page with foam tape. I then added the flower cluster to the side adding in the dusty attic blooms and the cut cat paw chippies.
I have then added the broken bits of mesh in the cluster as well as around the frame, and add the fish bones from the cat icon chippie.
I have finished off adding some 49 and Market wishing bubbles, some stamping and then adding some blue paint around the papers and flowers to left the photos and the flower feature.
Just love the cat icons on this frame.

Love - 49 and Market

Hello 49 and Market fans!

I have created a new layout which I would like to share with you today.
I so enjoyed putting this layout together. The photo is compliments of Pexels.com. I started the layout with the Singing the Blues paper from the Sweet Reflections range, which I covered with clear gesso, before adding some stencilling and stamping. I then added blue, pink and white ink splatters on the page.
I then started layering with flowers, some fussy cutting, laser cuts and chipboard around the photo. The flowers used were a mixture of Country Blooms Cobalt, Country Blooms Blush, Wildflowers Blush and Stargazers Simply White. I also fussy cut flowers from Sweet Reflections Crossroads paper, and used some of the Sweet Reflections laser cut pieces.

I have added in some chipboard pieces using the white Love Archival Chipboard. I coloured the lock in pink and blue, and added Wink of Stellar to the leaves. I have also added Wink of Steller to the some of the flowers and the wings of the dragonfly.

I have finished off adding some microbeads and using Bubblegum and Blueberry Wishing Bubbles.

Thank you for stopping by!

Great Outdoors - 49 and Market

Hello everyone!
Today I decided to do something a little different, and do a male layout, using a mixture of layered embellishments, chipboard, papers and laser cuts.

The frame is from the Serendipitous Collection, and the easy cut images page. I cut out the frame to the B side of the The Journey paper from the Collection Captured Adventures. I have sanded the frame and then dry-brushed some gold paint over the frame.
I have stamped on the back ground paper and then started layering with laser cuts from the Vintage Remnants set no 1, using the page piece. This I cut about an inch and half off the bottom, distressed and then sanded it. The film strip is from the Vintage Remnants set no 2.


The chipboard chain and the clock come from the Memory Captured Archival Chipboard, and the title from the Great Outdoor Archival chipboard set. These have been painted with rusty paint, and has the grit in it to resemble rust. I have then layered cogs from the Serendipitous layered embellishments, and leaves and bubbles from the Ethereal layered embellishments.

The love this moment comes off the laser sheet in the 6x6 paper pack of the Captured Adventures paper. I have finished off adding some prills to the layout.
