"She Loves in Colour" Maja Designs / Dusty Attic DT project - April

Hello and welcome again everyone!
Today I am back to share a my combined Maja Designs and Dusty Attic Design Team project with you. My project today is far from my normal. But I was inspired by this months Dusty Attic moodboard and I love nothing more than a good challenge.
You can find the April Moodboard below............


Just gorgeous, don't you think? So with this fresh in my mind I set to work. I have never ever considered creating country rustic so this was a very first for me.


"Walking in the Forest" from Maja Designs was the most perfect fit for my project today.
All the rustic colours of the countryside!

  

 

 

  You will see that choosing the papers for me was the hardest decision of all in the video that I made for this project today. If you keep scrolling through my blogpost you will find the link for my video tutorial.


My photo of choice for today's project was one taken late last year, of my eldest daughter with a friend that we would see on my girls' afternoon Violin tuition lessons. This friendly beauty lives in the paddock of the house that I would park at. And on most afternoons it would walk to my car just to check and see who it was! I was able to capture this gorgeous photo of both these beauties on one of our afternoon visits.


For this layout I have layered my Maja Design papers with lots of blooms, chipboards and elements cut from the Die Cut Sheet. 
You can also see above that I have used a chipboard quote. 
My title for this layout was taken from the quote.
 It reads:
"She see in black and white, thinks in greys but loves in colour....."



This is a new release piece that our clever Dusty Boss has come up with. I absolutely love this.....thanks Jennifer!!!


And the goegeously stunning blooms were all from the 49andMarket series of Rustic Blooms. These were co-ordinated with some of my favourite Dusty Attic chipboards that were coloured with differing mediums from Distress Inks to Rusting Powders and Crackle. If you follow the link below you will see how these were all dressed in the video. I have listed below the Dusty chipboards used in my project.


Dusty Attic Barbed Wire Frames DA1151


Dusty Attic Wagon Wheels DA0697


Dusty Attic Water Pumps DA0695
 and
Dusty Attic Corrugated Board
Dusty Attic Chipboard Quote "She loves in Colour"
 and 


Dusty Attic Rusting Powder DA0995




You can see the gorgeous effects of the Dusty Rusting Powder. I did a couple of layers to give my chipboard that added extra texture. I also added in a little ink with some Distress Crackle to help the pieces pop a little from the remaining embellishments.



The chipboard title above was simply dressed with a little Liquid Pearls. Below are some of the 49andMarket blooms used for this project. Perfect aren't they?



Well that is all from me today. I do hope you enjoyed your visit here! As I mentioned I have made a video to go with my post here. Just click on the link below to take you to it! Enjoy!!


Until next time happy crafting and take care.
