Remember - Tina Ollett - Mood Board Inspiration

Hello and welcome! Tonight I have a new and cute project to share with you as my Design Team work for Dusty Attic.
I have titled my project "Remember" as I am using a very cutesey older photo of my youngest daughter. It seems so long ago that she use to make me cups of tea from her cubby house that daddy made her. Oh how time flies.
For my project layout I have combined two different collections which I love to do from time to time. It was by accident that I found I loved these two papers together and they matched Dusty Attic's March moodboard I felt, well a few shades lighter of course but in my head they matched. For those of you who have not seen the moodboard as yet, I have shared it below. There is still plenty of time too to upload an entry if you are keen to win some fabulous Dusty Attic chipboards.
So from the moodboard I took the dark browns, grey and the lighter red and orange shades.

My background page consisted of Sea Creatures from the Sand and Sea collection along with Rusty Autumns Blooming Autumn papers. I did a little framework with my papers, added in some stamping using Gabi's Texture and Ethereal Stamp Sets using archival inks and distress inks to do this.
I then went on to add in one of my all time favourite pieces of Dusty Attic Chipboard the Decorative Scroll #1. This was used to frame my cute picture. I primed my piece with gesso firstly and allowed it to dry. I then did some stamping using Gabi's Ethereal Stamps with archival ink in the watering can colour. I then went on to give it a little colour using Inka Gold in Apricot. You can see the outcome below.
The Trellis (large) was used behind the Decorative Scroll to help it pop. I tore sections of the chipboard to give it a worn look as with any shabby chic project. I inked it with Watering can Archival Ink and then randomly sponged it over with a little white gesso.
While these dried I went on and fussy cut two pages of the Rusty Autumns Blooming Autumn papers. These are a little time consuming but I find very rewarding at the end of the cutting.

Windows and Shutters #3[/caption]
My next Dusty addition was the Window and shutters #3. These are just adorable. I cut sections of the fussy cut elements from Blooming Autumns gorgeous paper and adhered it behind the window. And then behind that I cut another piece from the Blooming Autumn to sit behind it. I coloured my window and shutters similarly to the Decorative Scroll and allowed it to all dry. You can see below the window with the papers behind. My word Remember was one that Jen Hedger had cut for me some time ago. Did you know that you can ask for speciality words or phrases. Jen does to order. There is nothing that this lady cannot do!
So my next step was to start layering using firstly the large chipboard Trellis with the fussy cut elements. I then added in some beautiful flowers from 49andMarket as below. These were dusted with white gesso to keep with the shabby chick look.

Below you can see the clustering with the chipboard , flowers and fussy cut elements.
That is all from me today. I do hope you have enjoyed my project.
Until next time take care and happy crafting.

You fill my heart with Love - Julia Ost - Mood Board Inspiration

Hello dear friends!

This is Julia Ostanovskaya here today with my new inspiration for amazing March Moodboard. 

I love keeping memories in my layouts and today I wanted to remember our walk in the forest. March colours reminded me of happy smiles, gentle rustling of leaves and fresh smell of the grass. 

 In my work I used different layers of paper, paint, metallic toppings, colourful flowers from 48&Market and of course the chipboard from Dusty Attic.

I hope you will enjoy it!

Kind regards,

Once again I'm here... 
To try encourage you with some ideas!

I found the photo in inspirational quotes on Pinterest.
I love it: Don't lose the spark that makes you....YOU!

I attached with clears gesso, the Tissue wrap paper 
from Tim Holtz Idea-ology range.
Using the Dusty Attic Mandala stencil, stencil with heavy gesso white.

Then, I spilt (dropped) Distress spiced Marmalade,let dry!

Then using various different stamps... stamped! 

For the Feather chipboard's I always paint white first, then adding colour with Inks. 

These are handmade butterflies, 
which I inked with Alcohol inks - 
Red Pepper; Sunshine Yellow and Sunset Orange.
These Daisies flowers are also Handmade!

Glass beads, I attached red paper first and then glued down.

For the title: YOU, I cut up from words
and create You on a tab!
