Escape Into Nature for Dusty Attic

Good morning how are you? I am here today to share Dusty Attics new chipboard and new Moodboard. Can you get a better combo?


This colour combo is divine, and I have to say I was inspired by the bold colours and the serine white glow that the image showed so that was my inspiration 



Once again my go to is just plain crisp white chipboard and it especially looks good when you have big bold colours. Things dont get lost with white on white especially when you spray paint the chipboard, as you get the definition through the dark shadow with the depth of the chipboard itself.



To add movement to the dandelion chipboard snip a couple of pieces off and make them look like they are blowing apart.



Stack the leaves in different angles and heights to lead your eye around to the title.



Add small butterflies over printed ones to add more interest.

Unscripted - with Dusty Attic

 Good morning how are you?

 I am back today to show you the feminine version of my first layout this month and I have a step by step for you explaining the process of building up your page.




To start off grab a lead pencil and your Brick wall stencil and just randomly trace around the stencil. 

I did the tracing  close to the top and the opposite on the bottom.






Now for the layers, I just used some left over papers, project life cards and some diecut sheets and distressed the edges to add some texture.



Now time to add some elements - half a gold doily, and some fussy cut flowers.....


I have marked out roughly where I want my photos to go but I am not too fussed about the sizing as I will see what I have printed.


After I have added the photos I will cluster some enamel dots in the top right hand side, the bottom right hand side and the bottom left hand side.


I sprayed the chipboard with Dulux Chalk Charcoal once that was dry add a combination of Finnabar Waxes - Vintage Gold, Sweet Rose and Indian Pink.

The other chipboard pieces are just sprayed with a white chalk from Rustolem.


Now its time to add the white elements.... like the extra cogs and nuts from the Industrial Cluster.

Then add the title over the top of that. This time I left the ''life'' off it to just change its a little bit.
