{With love...}

Hello everyone!

I am sharing my June design team project with you. This is my daughter and son-in-law on their wedding day.  What a perfect couple, born to love each other.

Here is my layout.



I used the following pattern papers.  The floral - Kaisercraft Rosabella Collection, the heart and stripe strips - Lady Pattern Paper and the polka dots - Penelope Dee.


The title, Heart Arrows and Word Pl@y I left raw to match the craft flowers and leaves. I think it works well on this layout.




The Flower Stamens and Wildflower were covered with white gesso and painted in red and pink acrylic paint and then dabbed with white acrylic paint.



I painted the Flutterbies with black gesso and then applied Art Alchemy Waxes in Vintage Gold and Sweet Rose and then dabbed with white and pink acrylic paint.



I covered the Foliage with white gesso and green acrylic paint.  While the paint was still wet, I sprinkled Zing MetaLlic Green embossing powder on top.



When everything was glued down I added Art Stones and splatters with diluted white gesso and black ink.

These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I used.

{Sweet memories...}

Hello Dusty FANattics!

Here is my layout inspired by the amazing May mood board. I just love the shades of purple, lilac and blues. I had the perfect photo for this mood board, my sweet little granddaughter.  I took this photo of her during a visit to Cullinan, a beautiful mining settlement with the most beautiful blooming Jacaranda trees. 

Here is the mood board.  

 and here is my layout



All the chipboard pieces were first primed with white gesso.

I embossed the word "sweet" with Zing Lavender embossing powder.  The beautiful Iron Garnish was covered with white gesso and dry brushed with Versa Magic in Pink Petunia. 
The Foliage were treated the same way as the Ginko Biloba, except that I did not use coarse gesso. 

  
Next I covered with Wordpl@y #2 and #3 with white gesso as well, making sure I get into the letters. Once dry I lightly covered the words with a sponge brush and Art Alchemy in Blue Lagoon, Electric Violet and Vintage Gold and Versa Magic in Pink Petuna.


I randomly covered the Ginko Biloba with coarse gesso then covered with white gesso. Once dry I lightly covered it with a sponge brush and Art Alchemy in Blue Lagoon, Electric Violet and Vintage Gold.


The branches and berries were painted with Americana acrylic paint in Blue Mist and Pansy Lavender and I covered the berries with Glossy Accents.


These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I used.

Hello everyone!

I am back with a new layout featuring the stunning new Like a Sir collection by Lady Pattern Paper.  How versatile is this collection, perfect for wedding, the men you love and even travel.  This is my mom and dad on their wedding day in November 1955.  My dad was so handsome and a real gentleman, and their happiness and love is perfectly captured in this photo.

Here is my layout.

{Great outdoors...}

Hello everyone!

Today I am sharing a layout with you using a photo of my husband. I have so much appreciation for him and love him madly!  He knows scrapbooking is my passion and is always so willing to pose for photos.

Here is my layout.


This is how I coloured the chipboard pieces .


I love the Reeds, and they are perfect for this photo. The Reeds, Grass Cluster, Sea Grass were all treated the same way.
 The flowers of the Reeds was first covered with coarse gesso.  Once dry, I covered the rest of the Reeds with white gesso. The flowers were painted with brown acrylic paint and the leaves and stems with shades of green.  I then dry brushed the Reeds with white, gold, white and rust acrylic paint. 


How super cute are these Toad Stools. The stems were first covered with coarse gesso.  Once dry, I covered it with white gesso, the with beige and brown acrylic paint. I inked the coarse parts with a brown ink pad and the edges with black.


I inked the tiny bird nest with Brilliance Chocolate.
I had this spider and web for many years and is perfect for this outdoor layout. The spider and web as well as the title were coloured with black acrylic paint.


I covered the Bard Wire Circle with Rust Effect Paste and dry brushed with white acrylic paint and Bronze Ages Metallique wax.
The Wood Slices and Drift Wood were inked in brown and black.

These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I used.
