Some kind of Wonderful - Belinda Spencer

Hello Dusty Attic fans!

Belinda here with you today with my layout for the month created with lots of gorgeous chippies. 

I got my hands on the Kaisercraft Stargazer range  and couldn't wait to match it up with some fabulous Dusty Attic star chipboards.

'Some Kind of Wonderful'


I began the layout by altering the background paper with clear gesso and Autumn Nights Glimmermist that I have had in my stash for aaaages. The spray nozzle was blocked up (of course) so I just spritzed the background with water and painted it on with a brush. I had to leave it overnight to dry absolutely completely to be able to emboss some white stars using a stamp and some fine white embossing powder. I flicked some white paint over it too.



Next I painted that stunning Star Banner silver using Brushed Pewter Tim Holtz Distress Stain. I LOVE this stuff! It's so easy to use. Just dab it on. It's mess free too and there's nothing to clean up. Winning!



I love to use the Mini Captions for my titles. There are such a variety to use to suit any occasion plus because I work in an A4 format, a smaller title really works well. Here I have grabbed my favourite white paint pen and swiped it over the surface taking care not to press to hard and obliterate the words in the boxes. I let it dry completely and then gave a second coat for extra crispness.







I added some more chipboard stars again painted with the Brushed Pewter to match the Star Banner. I can't resist using a Mini Tab on my layouts too jst above my photo. This one has been painted with the white paint pen to match the title.



I added a whole bunch of round and star shaped sequins to create a lovely night sky on my layout.

Timeless Beauty - Nicole Doiron



Hello Dusty FANattics!

This is Nicole and I am back today to share with you my take on the beautiful and elegant Dusty Attic June mood board.




The June mood board holds so many stunning images with a vintage touch and classic feminine feel.




The board immediately made me think of the most important woman in my life... my mom.

For my title, I chose Timeless Beauty, using a Mini Tag and a Mini Word, one covered with a pale peach embossing powder and the other in gray tones.





It's easy to see when looking at my page that I was inspired by the many 'couture' themed images in the board, including the gorgeous lace designs. That is why I used several chipboard pieces of the same theme. Below you can see one of the Mini Wire Dress Forms.





I added 2 of the Lacey Trims and pieces of the Lace Border #1, both of which I simply covered with white embossing powder.





I also included a strip of Small Crazy Stitchings.





I incorporated some real lace on the back layer of my background, as you can see here. Behind the photo of my mom (so lovely, if I may add), I slipped a Doily #3 along with lots of fussy cut paper flowers and butterflies from a vintage Lemoncraft collection... just perfect for my mom!




Here is a closer look at the Dusty Attic chipboard found on my layout:

Friendship - Farrel Tailor


Hi there everyone, today I am sharing a mixed media layout I created using some gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard along with the stunning Penelope Dee range Rosalee which I recently won through a competition on Instagram.

F Tailor Dusty Attic
For my background I used The Crafter's Workhsop White Gesso and Art Alchemy Sparks paint - Butterfly Spells to add a softness around my photo. I used Distress Ink Victorian Velvet to ink around the edges of my patterned papers and also used the ink and paint to splatter.

I stamped the background using Archival Ink Plum and Penelope Dee Rosalee stamp - Vintage Rose. I only used the script sections on the stamp.

I covered the Iron Garnish 3 chipboard with white gesso then heat embossed it using Ranger Rose Gold Embossing Powder and Stampendous Aged Rose Embossing Enamel. I then cut the chipboard in half so that it would wrap around the photo.

Using the Quoted Sentiments #1 Black, I cut one of the sentiment strips in half before adhering to my layout. I also stamped onto my photo cluster using the same Penelope Dee stamp set as before but this time using black archival ink.

To finish off the layout I added one of the tags from Mini Tags #5 Black and some flowers from my stash including flowers by Penelope Dee, Green Tara and Couture Creations. I inked some of flowers using the Sparks paint and Distress Ink.
