Cherish - Lisa Gregory

Hello Dusty Attic Lovers. Lisa here today, to bring you this sweet layout inspired by our Mood Board this month. The very touch of pink in the March Moodboard, swimming in a sea of neutral colors, simply caught my eye. I had to make the pink pop!! I chose a paper collection with very little color. Epiphany by Prima. It was the perfect backdrop to showcase the gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard and blooms.

I die cut the spiral roses and sprayed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Salt Water Taffy Starburst. I also sprayed the Dusty Attic blooms with the same color. I soaked the Spring Blooms #4 in some water, peeled the layers back a bit to give it dimension, wrinkled them up a bit and dried them. I gave them a spritz of Lindy's Stamp Gang South Shore Sand spray, flecked a bit of watered down white gesso onto it,  and topped the middles with some pearls.

I used the single blooms in the Spring Bloom set and did the same technique with them.

I cut the word cherish between the R and the I to adhere it beside the frame.

The Vintage Frame #2 is simply divine. I primed it with gesso, then added a thick coating of Viva Crackle paint. Once it was dried, I sprayed it with Lindy's South Shore Sand Flat Fabio spray. The color settled in the cracks beautifully.

Here is a closeup of the Elegant Frame where you can see more detail in the crackle technique.

I love how the crackle medium looks on the French Flourish Border chipboard. Like a fine weathered piece of wrought iron.
