Dusty Attic - All Smiles


Dropping in today sharing a page that started off being inspired by the yellow in the October Moodboard over at Dusty Attic but ended up leading down another path and turned a little grungy. I have been experimenting adding patterned paper to my pages, while still trying to keep lots of white space.

Anyways here is my page.

'All Smiles'

I layered lots of Dusty chippy to create the main cluster. In there you will find, swirly vines, seagrass and multiple cogs. To frame my photo I chose to use the smaller Antique Frame from the set. I didn't alter any of the chippy this time, I simply painted all with black gesso and then coloured with Sunshine and Rust Mica powders.

In the background for added texture I have added cheesecloth, bronze micro beads and some very old 7 Dots 9th wave patterned paper.

Prima - Celebrate You


Sharing a page today I created for Prima to showcase some of the Winter release flowers.

'Celebrate You'

For my layout I chose to use a few of the Peach flower bundle flowers. I was so happy when I saw that they were being released. Besides totally loving the colour of them, they are fabulous because they can be pulled apart and each petal has a wire stem, making them quiet versatile.

#961404 Light Paste

Prima - Sweet Peppermint

Quick post today to share a little altered jar I created using the gorgeous Sweet Peppermint collection by Prima. It is such a fun collection and features some beautiful soft pastel colours.

'Tis The Season'

For this project I decided to get a bit of a jump start on a gift for my sons teacher, I chose to alter a jar with lots of layers of fussy cut images from the collection and the added some of the stunning new release metallic leaves for added interest.

How gorgeous are the leaves? They are in gorgeous metallic Patel colours topped of with a sprinkling of glitter.
