"Happy Girl" by Robin Shakoor DT




Hello everyone!
There is nothing I love more than one stop shopping and now The Dusty Attic offers everything you need.  Whether you need acrylic paint, flowers or that special crackle finish to accent your chipboard pieces, The Dusty Attic is at your service!  This page is filled with lovely layers and was definitely handmade with love.


I used a combination of Dusty Pink, Cranberry and Sunburnt Orange acrylic paints to create this beautiful color gradient on my border.


Among the delicate Dusty in Bloom flowers from the Bridal Veil collection, I added a crocheted butterfly, paper fans and flowers.


Here is a close-up photo of the butterfly from Butterflies #2 which I painted with Navajo White and Dusty Pink paint from Dusty in Colour.  Once the paint was dry, I applied a layer of Dusty Attic Crackle Varnish.


I stamped floral images behind my photos to add interest to my page.  I used a small blossom from the Bridal Veil collection as part of my photo corner.
