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.

You Fill My Heart – The Dusty Attic DT

Hello there Lovelies!!

 I am super excited to be sharing with you all my very first design team project for The Dusty Attic!!!!

I have created this masculine scrapbooking layout using some amazing chipboard and other mixed media products.20170801_100221

How amazing are these chipboard pieces for boy layouts?! I started off by building my background using a TCW stencil from their new release and some Lindy’s Stamp Gang sprays. I then stamped randomly using a Kaisercraft Graffiti Stamp with black Versafine.

I used Aged Teal Embossing Enamel on my String Circle Frame piece and then cut into 2 pieces….this way I wasn’t wasting any of the chipboard behind the photo.

I cut random pieces from the Diamond Panel chipboard and painted with black gesso. I then dabbed some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse using my finger. I also cut the small Filmstrip in half and inked with my versafine and splattered using Frozen Jack Frost spray.
