Always in my Heart - Patricia Basson

Hello Blog Friends

Today I am sharing my DT page for Dusty Attic displaying this beautiful photo of my eldest daughter on her Matric Farewell many years ago. I used several sheets of Penelope Dee Papers from the Rosalee collection.

To keep to the rich blue colours of the Phoenix on her dress, I embossed the raw chipboard frames with Lindy's Stampgang Embossing Powder, Cosmic Pink Blue...It is one of the very effective EP that changes colours according to the background. Because I left the chipboard raw, I got this amazing Bluish two-toned effect. I added a few glass beads because Chantelle was in fact looking at Bubbles that we blew over her.

To match the Dress'es feathers, I used Dusty Attic's Mini Feathers. They got a light coating of white Gesso. I then brushed them with Antique Brilliance Wax, Fire Ruby and Opal Maxic Wax, Turquoise Satin. Also a light dry brush and splatters with Sparks Acrylic Paints, Magical Pond and Mermaid Sparkle.

On the background paper I did a little stencilling with Distress Ink using the Dusty Attic Bedazzled Stencil. I also added Texture Paste through the Confetti #2 stencil. I added Cosmic Pink Blue Embossing powder to it and Heat set it...this time I got the Pinker colour tone from the Embossing Powders. Also splattered some of the Sparks Paints.

Please visit the Dusty Attic Shop for these and many other amazing Designs and products.

Thank you for taking the time to visit...

Happiness radiates like 
the fragrance from a flower 
and draws 
all good things towards you.
