"Happiness" Maja DT / Dusty Attic Project December

Hello once again and welcome. Today I am here to share a project created for both 
Maja Designs and Dusty Attic, I have combined my Design Team work into one making life a little easier for myself this month!
We recently celebrated our youngests 12th birthday, and thinking of what to buy her was a total nightmare. It kept me awake for many nights. But one night I had an epiphany! Chickens!! My husband thought that I had lost my marbles finally, but as it turns out, they were the best birthday present she has ever received. This particular photo was one of many taken only days after she received them. I think this photo captures her true happiness. She is so very devoted to these little guys who, may I add, have grown very quickly over the past 4 weeks. They love to sit on her shoulder and feed from her hands. She even does her violin practice outside with them whilst they are running free under her strict supervision. So with this I created a soft pretty page to help her remember her happiness at receiving these little guys. Oh and by the way the little one in the photo with her has been named "Duck"...so very funny....but as funny as it sounds it really does suit her!! 
This has been titled......"Happiness".



Ok so now onto the layout. Like I said I wanted to create something something soft and pretty, so to do this I have used Maja Design's Vintage Spring Basics collection. I have teamed the 7th of April with the 2nd of April bs. When I started out I really didn't have much of an idea of where I was going with it but as the days rolled on I started to lean towards more of a mixed media layout.






My first piece of Dusty Attic that I used was this gorgeous Floral Frame #2. I have dressed it heavily in Vintage Silver Embossing Enamel. I love the effect it left on the chippie after a few layers.




I also used the same embossing powder to create some texture on the Maja Design 7th of April patterned paper. You can also see here the bottom part of the frame. The other Dusty Attic piece I used was from the ATC Frame Set #2. This was dressed in Liquid Pearls (Buttercup). Over the top of it I added some of the embossing enamel to bring the layout together. 


You can see the frame better in the photo below. 


I have also used a little Viva Inka Gold to colour my background and help these photos pop. And some splashes of gesso and more inka gold.


I have used some gorgeous Prima Marketing Blooms to embellish the page along with Green Tara blossoms and a most gorgeous Lace Motif piece from my go to shop A Place to Create.One of the Prima Blooms I changed up, to co-ordinate with my background colourings. The Green Tara blossoms were also coloured with the liquid pearls and Distress Ink Walnut Stain.


And a new favourite Dusty piece is this Page Pebble from the #9 pack. This is just adorable. It too was dressed with Liquid Pearls and Embossing Enamel.




Well that is all from me today. I really do hope you enjoyed your visit here today. Until next time happy scrapping.
