Fun, Fun and more Fun - Melinda Sweetman - Pocket Page scrapbooking

Well, I very recently received my DT pack from Dusty and have had a chance to have a bit of a play with some new products!! Both new to me and new to the store - either way it is FUN!!
I have 3 projects to share with you today and I will start with a notebook I made for a friend who had a birthday late last month.

So, firstly I have coloured up this gorgeous little image from Saturated Canary (if you would like to see the colours they are listed on my blog here) then I found some papers from my stash that worked with colours I had chosen. I believe they are all Heidi Swapp papers, the one on the cover is from a 12x12 sheet from Vintage Chic (I think) and the other 2 are from a 6x6 paper pad in the Dreamy collection. I have pulled out some some flowers and some fun mini Dusty embellishments to finish it off :)

For the "title" I have used my all time fave Mini ABC Upper alpha which I have coloured using some Lustre Rub-On colours just using my fingertip in the green and then used the bronzey colour by dabbing that around. When I was happy with the way they looked I used some of the Clear Gloss Varnish.

A pebble from the Page Pebbles #8 set which I have coloured the raised bits with a white molotow paint pen and topped with an epoxy dot and added some flowers from my stash.

Here I have used one of the Mini View Finders which I have coloured the same way as the alphas and some Mini Feathers (which I might add are one of my all time fave Dusty chippie pieces!!) that have just been coated with white paint. And again paired those with some flowers from my stash.

And lastly a Mini Banner treated the same way the alphas were.So, that is my 1st project for the month!

Onto number 2 - Week 17 in our 2015 PL album

Here is the left hand side with a number of Dusty pieces. I have used the Dusty In Colour Denim for all of the chippie pieces in this spread to keep it uniform and help with the flow of the page.

I think this is my most fave piece on the is layout - a heart from the Scribble Hearts set with a coat of the paint and then a coat of the Clear Crackle Varnish.

These 2 pieces are from the Love This, Love That Arrows set, again with a coat of the denim paint.

And onto the right side

Another of the arrows from the Love This, Love That Arrows painted.

Another of my all time fave Dusty pieces - the Teeny Tiny ABC set and an arrow from Heart Arrows #1, all painted again in the denim coloured paint.

And both pages together so you can see the flow :)

And onto my 3rd project for the month and I am super happy how this turned out!! I had no idea what exactly I was going to do with this photo after I printed it but when I saw these titles it just worked!!

We all had headed out for a walk on a winter's afternoon here and I just decided to snap a feet shot - I love them ;) - and then it didn't fit into our weekly spread - didn't really have a story to tell with it - so I decided to use it as a cover page for Part 2 of our PL album :)

A coat of white paint to the Cherish Yesterday titles and also the Flutterbies #3.
The titles also got a coat of the clear varnish as well :)

And the big butterfly with a label (I will stamp the end date to the album when I get to the end) and some alpha stickers.
That is it for me for this month and make sure you play along with the gorgeous mood board for your chance to win a $100 voucher in the Dusty Attic store!!

Happy scrapping!!
