Re-Vamping with Vicky Alberto

It's never too late to add Dusty Attic chipboard to a project. Have you ever looked back at some of the first layouts you ever created and thought "not a bad START but..."? That's how I feel about a lot of my first projects. These two that I'm sharing today begged me to polish them up. I updated each of them with an extra distressed paper layer, tons of beautiful Dusty Attic chipboard, plus a few other embellishments too.

I spattered the chipboard with 3 fabulous Dusty Attic paints.
Dusty Attic products added: 
Leafy frame set (DA0605)
Big bro title (DA0172)
Mini scrolls (DA0685)
Bridal veil blooms (DA0805)
Navajo white paint (DA0903)
Faded denim paint (DA0913)
Mountain meadow paint (DA0916)

Some of the most common things we do as new scrapbookers is put limited layers and few textures or details on our layouts. Often our design concept/composition is good but we fail to add the extras that turn them from flat to fabulous. I was no exception to this when I started this hobby (almost 5 years ago). A few simple changes can drastically improve the look of your project.

I painted and stamped over all of the chipboard pieces.
Dusty Attic products used:
Corner flourish #3 (DA0623)
Monarch Butterfly (DA0819)
Baroque corners (DA0543)
Navajo white paint (DA0903)

I know you're curious how those projects looked before I updated them so here is a peek. One good thing about being a "newbie" scrapper was the fact that I had poor adhesive and cheap sticker letters - so it made some things easy to remove from these layouts.

Hopefully this blog post inspires you to re-visit some of your old creations. Thanks for taking the time to view my projects today!
