These Are Treasured Memories layout

Hi Everyone, I’m back today to share with you my interpretation of the Dusty Attic December Mood Board. These colours are just amazing and I decided to use these colours as the base of my layout.

And this is what I came up with…


I started by using 7 Dots Studio Cotton Candy pp – Cloud Watching and white Cardstock as my base. Then mixed some white gesso with Distress Stain Peacock Feathers to create a light blue paint.


Using my fingers I applied the paint onto my paper and used a heat tool to dry. I then applied Nuvo Embellishment Mouse – Pacific Teal using a baby wipe in a swiping motion. I then put a small amount of white gesso onto the baby wipe to help blend the mouse.


I also used the same mousse around the edges of the my photo mount before adhering my photo.


Next I used Lindy’s Stamp Gang Starburst Spray – Shabby Turbine Teal to create depth around the torn edges of my paper using a paint brush and some water.


I then added some texture by using TCW Light and Fluffy Modeling Paste and TCW662s Mini Tile Mania stencil.


Now for the chippy!!! I used Dusty Attic Geometric Border, Geometric Corners  and cut them into smaller pieces so I could build a layer with them. I then painted them and the  String Frames Small with Prima Acrylic Paint Sparks – Raven Black. Once dry I then adhered them onto my layout.


I then used my finger to apply a small amount of Prima Acrylic Sparks Paint – Mermaid Sparkle and Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Pacific Teal to the geometric pieces.


I also added some stamping using Stampers Anonymous stamps – Ultimate Grunge and Slight Alterations with Ranger Archival Ink – Watering Can.


Then to finish it off I used These Are Treasured Moments chipboard and lightly covered with white gesso using a make up sponge and then blended Nuvo Embellishment Mousse – Pacific Teal around the edges. And adhered a tab from Mini Tabs #7 Black.

#Like A Boss – Dusty Attic DT

Whoo hoo it’s Friday and today I am sharing a layout using some awesome chipboard by Dusty Attic Chipboard.


 I had so much fun creating this layout and wanted to try and keep it simple as the papers are quite bold. So with this mind I decided to keep the colours to a minimum – orange, blue black and white.

The papers I used are by Fab Scraps #teens collection (I love this range – perfect for boy layouts). I covered the cogs, arrows, hashtag and title chipboard in white gesso first to help the colour pop. The skull I covered with black gesso.


For the arrows I used Dylusions Calypso Team and used a paint brush to cover the chipboard.


For the cogs and title I used Distress Stain Spiced Marmalade and Fluro Orange acrylic paint. Once they dried I then used a blending tool with Distress Oxide Black Soot to go around the edges.

I wanted to add more black to my page so I decided to used the page pebbles chipboard and ink with black archival Ink.

To finish off the layout, I used the fluro orange paint with a little amount of water, white gesso and Dylusions spray to splatter on my background and also on the small skull.

Dusty Products Used:


Arrows #1




Cogs #1


Cogs #2


Page Pebbles #10


Skulls and Crossbone


Word Pack #37

I hope you enjoyed my latest creation and thanks for dropping by.
