"It's the little memories that will last a lifetime" Dusty Attic Moodboard Interpretation - August 2016

Hello and welcome!
I am here today to share my interpretation of this month's Moodboard at The Dusty Attic. You have until the end of the month to join in and be in the running to win a wonderful $100 prize of Dusty Attic chipboards of your choice. All you need do is create a project with as many elements from the moodboard as you wish and upload to the gallery.

My interpretation.........

"It's the little memories that will last a lifetime" 

And this is the stunning August Moodboard. Agree?

I have used some very favourite pieces of Dusty Chippies here, some new and some old.....but my go to pieces to create at present would have to be the newest Word Strip Sentiments. These sentiments are heartfelt and very much how I feel about this particular photo.

My background paper was primed with clear gesso firstly and then I created more of the bubbles using the Dusty Attic Bubbles Stencil with their Texture Paste. I dried it off and then mixed the Dusty Acrylic Paints (Oceania and Mountain Meadows) with  gesso and water to make a thin consistency. It was then painted around the page.

I have also used a Baroque Corner cut up as flourishes for my flower clusters.

The corrugated card was torn to create a background. It was layered up with strips of the 13arts patterned paper, corrugated card and chipboards. I gave the corrugated card a white washing with a dry brushing of gesso.

My other chipboards were inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and then painted with random dabbings of the acrylic paints and gesso.

The beautiful 49andMarket Blooms were coloured using the Dusty Attic Acrylic Paints. They were given a couple of coats and still retained their shape.

And from another view. I have also used some of the new Dusty Attic Pearls to adorn the 
Ornate Pendant.

And below are all the Dusty Attic gorgeous goodies that I used to create this project. 




Well that is all from me today. I hope I have inspired you in some small way to give this month's moodboard challenge a try.

Until next time ....happy scrapping and take care.

"Enjoy the little things"- 49andMarket DT creation - August

Hello.......... and welcome back.
 I'm here today to share my next creation using 49andMarket's, Flower Fairies of Spring collection. For the most part I usually use a 4 x 6 inch photo, but when I thought to use this cute photo of my youngest blowing bubbles, my first instinct was to cut it out. There were many other components in the photo that were distracting and I wanted to keep the focus on her alone. For the remainder of the layout I kept it clean and simple with the addition of only fussy cut elements from this beautiful collection and a tiny amount of stamping.

I have titled this layout 
"Enjoy the little things"

FF At The Quarry FFS 4406
I used two sheets of At the Quarry and the Spring Cut Out Sheet to give myself the added extras. My starting point was the clock. This was adhered to the reverse of the spring cut out sheet at the left top and my elements started from here and flowed down the page all the while layering each fussy cut element using foam tape. FF Spring Cut Out Sheet FFS 4482
The reverse of the Spring Cut Out Sheet was my base paper. This was kept quite clean with only a little stamping using Gabi's Texture Stamp Set.
Gabi Taxture Stamp Set GP 4635
FF In the Garden FFS 4437
And I also cut a few more flowers from this gorgeous paper to add some pops of orange to the layout.

I have added in these cute as a button fairies cut from the reverse page of the Spring Cut Out Sheet. A little Star Dust Stickles was applied to the Fairies wings as well as to the backs of the Cabochons.

To keep with the fairy theme I used some Dusty Attic chipboard toadstools which make a great addition to these gorgeous papers. I have dressed the chipboards in Distress Inks and Viva Inka Gold (Copper) to help pull the background colours and tone down the yellows. Then they were coated with a little Distress Crackle to accentuate the colours.

And another view of the toadstools. You can also see here my daughter is sitting upon these rocks on the wall. Looks so real!! I have added in a complete list below of products used for this project. Remember this collection is available from The Scrapbook Diaries.
Well that is all from me today. I so hope you have enjoyed your visit here.

Take care and until next time happy scrapping.

"His happy place" - 49andMarket/ Dusty Attic / July Moodboard Creation

Welcome. Today  I am sharing my interpretation of this months Moodboard for Dusty Attic. Gorgeous, bold and bright, see for yourself below.

For those of you who love your chipboards and flowers as much as I do, you are in for a special treat. I have a layout jammed packed full of 49andMarket Blooms along with Dusty Attic chipboard goodness. So my interpretation of the above moodboard goes something a little like this..........

"His Happy Place"

I love to create with photos that have a very special memory for me. And this photo is a most treasured memory. This was taken about 5 years ago now on Australia Day. The kids and I found a quite little area at Beachmere to take our two beautiful dogs "Sam" and "Gusbus" for a swim.  Unfortunately neither dog is with us anymore, and 5 years on we all still think of them constantly, none more than my son who loved these two to bits. He and Sam were of the same age as we got her when I was pregnant with Hayden. So yes this is a very meaningful photo and I only hope I have done it justice!

So isn't it funny when you see something and you just instantly fall in love with it. And then all you want to do is use takes that something special to be able to use it on! Well this was my problem with this Dusty Attic fishnet stencil and 49andMarket's Vintage Artistry collection . I was so happy to be able to use both to create this beachy layout to showcase this beautiful photo of my son.  I have used the stencil along with some freehand texturing and then a dash of  Bashful Blue Twinkling H2O's. 

Below you can see that I have used the chipboard Decorative Scroll to hold the little bottle containing very small shells that I pulled from an old jewellery piece that I found at an op shop.

I have used the Decorative Scroll #2 to frame the photo. It has been turned back to back and then cut up to sit at the left of the photo. I used a number of layers of  Texture Paste to get an uneven textured look that you can see here. Once it dried I rubbed Brown and Red (looks more like orange to me) Rust Effect Paste over the chippies and rubbed it in and wiped off the excess.


The Compass Rose is so so beautiful. This I have made look very rustic by adding lots of mediums, Rust Effect Paste, Viva Inka Gold, and Distress Inks.

All of these beautiful beautiful Rustic Blooms have been coloured with the Dusty in Colour Acrylic Paints to achieve these beautiful colours and to match with the moodboard.


I have also used the Mini Chains that come in a 10 pack. I looooovve chains at present I can't explain why but they are just my go to! These beauties were inked with Distress inks and Dusty Attic in Colour Sunburnt Orange acrylic paint.  The Cabichons were also coloured with the Dusty acrylics.

Dusty In Colour Acrylic Paints (Oceania, Sunburnt Orange, and Chocolate) ,Dusty Attic Texture Paste and Crackle Varnish were all used for colouring on this layout.

And another close-up. Below is the coloured Tab #2 that I have used for this project.


That is all from me today. I hope you are happy and well....and until next time happy scrapping!
