The Dusty Attic January Mood Board Challenge - Wedding Layout

Hi everyone, I am very excited to have been invited back for another term on The Dusty Attic Design Team.  Thanks so much Jennifer Hedger and Jen Burns... looking forward to another fabulous year creating with all your gorgeous chipboard designs!!

"You Will Forever be my Always"
Today I am sharing my take on this month's gorgeous Mood Board.  I was inspired by the gold and white colour palette, wedding theme and lacy accents.

Because we have so many amazing entries each month and it is so difficult to pick just one winner, there will now be TWO winners who have the chance to win a $AU50 Dusty Attic Prize Voucher to spend at the Website.  All you have to do is use the Mood Board as inspiration and make sure to add some Dusty Attic chipboard/products to your creation, then link it up to the Dusty Attic blog on the top right hand side... good luck!!

To create my background, I first applied gold mist to my paper.  I then stencilled over the gold mist using texture paste and the Creative Script Template.

The chipboard pieces were altered by coating with white paint/gesso and then a coating of gold paint.   Once dry I added touches of gold foil for an added touch of sparkle and texture.

Once the chipboard, paper accents and lace detail were applied around the gorgeous photo of my niece on her Wedding Day, I applied some of the Dress My Craft Crystal Clear Sequins to the background with random touches of gold Prills.


Thanks so much for stopping by.
Happy Crafting

Dusty Attic - December Mood Board Challenge - Life is Good at the Beach

Hi everyone,  I hope you had or are having a wonderful Christmas day with your loved ones and that you start the New Year with a bang!!

You still have time to enter this month's gorgeous Mood Board at Dusty Attic to be in for a chance to win a $100 Prize Voucher from the Dusty Attic Website.  All you have to do is make sure you have some Dusty Attic chipboard/products on your creation and link it up to the Dusty Attic blog on the top right hand side... good luck!!

"Life is Good at the Beach"
I was inspired by the photo on the bottom right and used the sketch loosely as a guide when creating this layout. 

To create the background I used two Dusty Attic Stencils.  First I stencilled using texture paste and the Sunburst template, then I stencilled with the Confetti #2 template and gel medium, which I coated with Lindys embossing powder in Weeping Willow Green/Gold.

The chipboard pieces were coated with white paint and small sections highlighted with embossing powder.



Thanks so much for stopping by.

Hi everyone,
I was recently invited to teach classes on the Workshop Wonders on Waters Cruise to New Zealand and through the generous sponsorship of Jennifer Hedger was able to showcase Dusty Attic by using a gorgeous array of chipboard and other Dusty Attic product on my projects. I created 4 layouts, which were a hit with the ladies!!

"Every Photo Tells a Story"
I created this layout with a mini flip out album designed to showcase 6 photos with a journal pocket.
