Love you to the Moon and Back - Rosalie Duke-Stanley

I thought these colours where perfect to put with a photo of my beautiful granddaughter Amelia.

I found some paper that had a great blue wood grain but it was a bit pale and not as vibrant as I would like. I used clear crackle paste and painted the pattern of the wood grain so that it would add texture to the page. Once dry (tip: leave to dry naturally as drying with a heat gun doesn't allow the crackle to develop properly). To add a more vibrant blue colour, I added Lindy Stamp Gang Magicals in bright blue and sprayed allowing the water to flow following the wood grain pattern. 

The base of the main textured area is large pieces of tissue paper stuck down with more clear crackle paste. Once dry, using a variety of Finnabair alchemy paints to paint vertical strips to blend the tissue paper. I used a Tim Holtz oxide ink to add a rustic look so that it wasn't too shimmery with the alchemy paints. 

I finished with stiffened gauze that was coloured with DA Denim paint, painted chip board layered under a photo mat. To blend in,  I flicked various paints over the main embellishment area. 

flowers were spray various complimentary colours with Lindy Stamp Gang sprays and added to the layout. Frame and words were added and a light blue gold paint dabbed on the edges of flower petals, frame and words to add a grungy look. 

I hope you enjoy my layout and I welcome your comments on my blog.

For the background I ripped Tattered Garden at a angle, inked the edges & glued the pieces onto cardstock. I primed the chipboard with black gesso, then applied clear crackle onto some of the pieces. Once the crackle dried I played with the H20's listed above trying to come close to the colors in the photo...

I added a industrial chain, mini cogs & brads onto the industrial pieces.....

I used the sandcastle flowers because of the color of the girls lips....

I first made up a frame using the zippers, zipper waste & chains, then added a industrial corner....

Nous Deux - Valerie Ouellet

Hi everyone!
Here is my interpretation of the moodboard of the month on Dusty Attic Blog.

I was inspired by the blue and yellow colors, the yellow flowers.

I used the new french chipboard as a title. A very big selection of french words are available now on the Dusty Attic store!

I love the small size of the "Nous deux" chipboard. I embossed the "Fancy Frame #5" with blue embossing powder.

Materials used:

-Dusty Attic "Fancy Frame #5"
-Dusty Attic "Nous deux"
-Cuts2luv flairs
-Lindy's stamp gang embossing powder
-Lindy's stamp gang ink spray
-Wild Orchid Craft flowers
-Prima flowers
-Les Créations Edith Cloutier stickers

School Photo and Library - Belinda Spencer

Hello Dusty Attic fans!

Belinda here today to share two layouts I created featuring the fabulous BRAND NEW school themed chippies. These chipboard pieces are just perfect for school photos and believe it or not this is the first time in EIGHT years I have ever scrapped a school photo. It seems I have some catching up to do! Lucky I now have the most perfect embellishments to use on my long overdue layouts.

'School Photo'

Oh my!! Such a cute photo of my darling daughter and sweet son! I chose a colour theme for my layout to match their school uniform of light and dark blue. I began by swiping some Oceania Dusty in Colour Paint across my background using a silicone brush.

I then stamped the word 'click' from the Darkroom Door Photography stamp set several times from top to bottom. 

I coloured the BRAND NEW Rulers chipboard pieces as well as the mini numbers using a white Posca Paint Pen. It took about three coats to get a lovely crisp white.

I took the word 'school' from the BRAND NEW Word Pack # 42 and painted it with the Oceania Paint.

I slipped a cute Mini Tab in above my photo that I had also painted using the white Posca Pen.

I used the Typewriter ABC Set to add in the word 'Photo' after painting it with Denim Dusty In Colour Paint.

For this layout I stuck to the same colour scheme also to match my daughter's school uniform colours. This is her very first school photo! She looks so little and cute and nervous for her first photo.

To create the background for this layout, I first added a thin coat of clear gesso to my background cardstock. Once dry, I spritzed the background with water and added diluted Oceania paint. I also flicked some of the diluted Oceania paint as well as some Denim paint over the background and allowed to dry. I used my white Posca Paint Pen to add some flicks of white also.

All of the fabulous white chipboard pieces were coloured with that same paint pen.

I used the white Posca Pen as well as one in aqua to colour the cute book stack chipboard and finished with a little Denim paint for the leaf on top of the apple.

How cute are those chipboard paper clips?!! I love them so much.

I coloured the adorable little chipboard pencils with the white paint pen again and then added the aqua one on top. I left the 'wood' part of the pencil raw.

The ruler and the ABC 123 Border were painted with the same Dusty in Colour paints as used on the background.

I hope I have inspired you to pull out some school photos and create some beautiful pages featuring these awesome new release chipboard pieces.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today.
