Faith Tag - Dusty Attic Moodboard March 2021

Hello creative friends!  Welcome to the blog today. 

It's Jo with you to share my take on this months gorgeous moodboard.

I decided to create a tag.

First I made my chipboard embellishments using the heart attack panel #1 to sit my foliage and flower on.  You will see in th final pic that I decided to change the flower to go with one that was more in the purple tones.  I tucked in a small birdcage and under my cluster I aslo added the broken bits - Marrakesh.  These are my favourite bits to use to tuck in places for extra texture.

I then covered my chipboard tag in some pretty paper and added some lace and other trims along with some paper foliage.

Here are a couple more close ups

I hope you find some time to play along with us this month!

Treasured Memories - Dusty Attic

Hello creatives!  I hope you are well and happy.

Im sharing with you today a layout showcasing a photo of my dear mum and my sometimes dear daughter celebrating her 18th birthday!

I started my layout by making a focal embellishment for the left hand side of my page.  This was just my starting point.

I wanted something to run down the side of my photo. I cover the chipboard pieces in pigment inks clear embossing powder and then added some gold wax to the little frame.   I also changed the flower as I wanted to add a whole heap of them.  

From this I then added the cog border strip underneath he whole embellishment.  I then decided to add more cogs to create a bit of a sweeping effect across my page. 

I used Nuneka's beautiful cogs for this and I covered them with Prima Old Walls rust effects.  To be totally honest I don't really even know if this effect is how it is supposed to turn out as its been sitting in my cupboard for years and looked a little dry, but I got it to work and I like the effect so I guess thats all that matters right???

I will leave you with a few close ups.
