"Sunshine" Maja Design and Dusty Attic DT creation

Hello and welcome! Today I'm here to share my Dusty Attic moodboard inspired layout with you. 
The starting point for "Sunshine" was created using the sketch as you can see in the Moodboard below. Oh and the bicycle! I kept with my own colours but am very inspired to do another using the colours below......next time. 

And my moodboard inspired layout......

My base background was created using Maja Designs Summertime collection. I cut some banners the gutted back papers and cards from the Die Cut sheet. Everything was distressed and layered. I added in a little lace here and there to complete the base sketch.

You can see above that I have used the Dusty Attic Scroll Set #1. They are just gorgeous. I have cut them up and dressed them in some Chocolate Liquid Pearls.

And I have done the same for the Decorative Set below.

I have laid a strip of the Maja "Happy Summer" quotes through the middle of the frame and glued the extra pieces to the base of it. This is just a stunning piece of chipboard. A big favourite for me!

And the Dusty Wordpl@y #2 is the perfect addition for a small title. This piece was simply gessoed and the edges wiped over with a little liquid pearls.

And another close-up for you........

Well that is all from me today!! If you keep scrolling I have left a complete Materials list for this project. Thank you for taking the time to stop by. Until next time happy scrapping and take care.

"Adventure" - on a sunny day - 49andMarket / Dusty Attic DT project

Welcome, Tina O with you today to share my latest Dusty Attic project with you. 
This I have titled "Adventure - on a Sunny Day".

My starting point for this layout was my photo of my son a lot of years ago. And because it was a nature photo I wanted to keep within these colours and help make the photo pop. I have used lots of H2O's here in this layout to colour my background and my gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboards.

I have only recently started using H2O's but never on my chipboards so a lot of what I did here was very experimental. I had primed some chipboards with gesso but I found I actually liked the colour more intense without the gesso. I also found that heating the medium onto the chipboards gave it another dimensional element altogether.

I have to admit I am a hoarder of Dusty Attic chippies. There are some that I just don't like to use because I loooooove them way too much and one of them happens to be this Garden Frame that I have used around my photo. So I am no longer hoarding it but am now in morning because I don't have another!!!! This piece I have cut up into two pieces to help it fit the page and my photo. 

This piece was also dressed in Dusty Attic's Rusting Powder to start off with. If you have never used it you really must give it a try. I cover my chipboard with Versa Mark Embossing ink and sprinkle a sticky embossing powder and heat set it. Then sprinkle over the Dusty Attic rusting powder, as thick or thinly as you would like. Then using vinegar in a spray botttle spritz your chipboard. I am always on the cautious side with the vinegar. You can always add more if needed. Leaving overnight I find has a better result. But if you need to leaving it dry for an hour or so usually gives you a good indication of the outcome. I don't recommend heat setting it but you could although you will get much better results with a little patience.

Above and below you can see more chippies that I have used on this project. The filmstrip I don't think I have ever used but it has been in my stash forever!! And I love it. It is going to be used more often. And of course the Fancy Flourish this is an all time favourite. It is just too delicious. I have cut it in two and place it under torn papers.

And from another view....

Well that is all from me today. Thank you so much for visiting and until next time take care.

Love isn't love, until it's given away" - Maja Design Team Creation

Welcome and a very happy Valentine’s Day to you wherever you live in the world.
May your day be filled with love, flowers and chocolate, lots and lots of chocolate………..!
 The title for this layout was taken from a beautiful beautiful quote I found in a big box of rub-ons this morning, one I had not heard of before. But it will be one that I use again one day soon. It goes……

“Love wasn’t put in your heart to stay, love isn’t love until it’s given away”

For my scrapbook layout project here today I kept everything very clean indeed. I did a simple stamped border with embossing powders. Again as always I have added in some fussy cut elements from the Summertime (In the Garden) - Smell the roses patterned paper.

I had the photo printed of twice in two differing sizes and then layered them one on top of the other. I framed one photo with the Summertime (In the Garden) Die Cut frames. The centre was cut from this and then used behind the back of my chipboard window. So cute!!

I have added in some gorgeous lace that has been cut up and layered sometimes 4 times over itself. Some of the lace was left a little distressed to keep with a shabby feel.

I have used lots of yummy Dusty Attic chipboards for this project. They were simply covered with Crackle Paste and coloured with China Black H2O's, and a little distress crackle and some Star Dust Stickles.

I used a Sizzix Die-Cut for my title "Love". I layered it up a couple of times and dressed similarly to the other chipboards but I left it a little darker so it could stand out on the page. I also added in some handmade accetates to add to the layout another layer.

"Sweet Memories" 49andMarket / Dusty Attic February Project

Good morning and welcome. I hope this post finds you happy and well. I have been out of action for the past week due to having had some surgery. The recovery period has taken a little longer than expected but thank you to those of you who have taken the time to inbox me. It really warms my heart to know that I have so many people who care.....thank you xx
So without further ado I have my next instalment of my 49andMarket and Dusty Attic creativity.

"Sweet Memories"

Giggling giggling and still giggling at this gorgeous photo of my youngest at the beach with her giant sized hat and bucket, collecting shells. She couldn't have been cuter. The close-up photo is even cuter......will have to use that one a little later on!

I have used the gorgeous Dusty Attic heart attack stencil to make some gorgeous texture in the background followed by some Star Dust stickles to make the layout sparkle.

 I have added layers of torn gorgeous 49andMarket's Heirloom Botanicals Passage top and bottom of layout along with a gorgeous length of lace.

I have used the Dusty Attic Antique frame to highlight the photo.

I have also added in some cut-outs from the Flower Fairies of Spring Ephemera Sheet.
