Todays Moments - Dusty Attic

Hello and welcome again!

I have a simple yet I think effective layout to share today.  I have to say that I have been in a little bit of a scrapping block at the moment.  Does this happen to you?  How do you find some inspiration?

For me I have started going over my layouts that I created way back when.  Ones that I'm no longer liking.  So I am throwing them out and re scrapping the photo.  I know that lots of people think thats crazy but I get to recreate another page with product that I now love but not only that I get to enjoy the memory that particular photo captured.  This pic is of my middle man and me when he was much younger.

I have gone back to my clean white style that I really love.

To add a bit of sparkle I used the Floral stencil with some glitter paste before adding all my other pretty Dusty Attic pieces.

I covered the French flourish with some Ink Gold in a pink colour and tucked it under my embellishments. 

The Creative Script was gessoed and then snipped into three pieces and placed around the page.

I used some pearl ink on the Doily and tucked that into the photo cluster too.

Here are a couple of close ups.

You can see all that pretty sparkle.  I love to use glitter paste over the tops of an inked stencil.

Here is another close up

I created a little accetate frame here with some glass glitter underneath to make a bit of a shaker frame.

Mood Board February - Dusty Attic

Welcome and thank you so much for popping by.

Sharing with you today my take on this months beautiful moodboard.

Lets just have another look at moodboard Jen the Boss designed for us to play with.

Not bad!  Not bad at all!  I love it!

Here is my take.  I chose to play with most of the colours from the palette

To start I covered all my chipboard.  The Ornate Gates I covered in a white pigment pearly ink.  I adhered that to my page.  Using some blue acrylic paint I painted the Doily and the Iron Garnish and then adhered them to my page.

I tucked under some fussy cut flowers and then set about making my paper cluster for my photo to sit on.  The Birds on a Branch was also covered with a light coat of brown pearly pigment ink and I snipped it in half to be able to tuck a piece each side of the photo.

I finished of this side of my layout by adding my flowers and title.

Before I stuck on the Juliette balcony, I covered it with some gesso before rubbing over some white gold prima wax.

This layout ended up being really layered up with chippy but I love the effect.  Definately one to go in a frame and on my wall in the entry way!
