This makes my SOUL happy - Rikki G - Interactive Page

 Good afternoon how are you all? ohhhh I am running a bit late with my post today for Dusty Attic, but I have to say the layout was one of those that evolved into something that I couldnt have imagined.... dont you just love those types of scrapping?

So I was inspired by the double sketch and I wanted to work off the back of my sample for the amazing sketch as I had more photos and I wanted to focus on the journaling and the little story behind making my daughters final book week costume (plus I really loved the back side of the paper and didnt want to waste it). 

So my though was to work off the NEW Dusty Attic sketch and make it interactive to allow more photos and journaling.

So here is a reminder of this months sketch.....

and here is what the first side looks like.....

 And here is the interactive layout....

Dusty Attic Retreat vibes - Deb Stephens

For those of you that have been to a Dusty Attic Retreat, you would know how much fun they are! The last one was in December 2022 and it was a Santa's Workshop Christmas theme with lots of costumes made and paraded. Funny photos were taken and lots of laughs needed to be remembered and what better way to do it then using some Dusty Attic Chipboard 49&Market Holiday Wishes range of papers and embellishments!

The layout comes together with some DA0932 Polaroid Frames and DA2454 Polaroid Frame Set #1 that were painted and then had Christmas Mini Sentiments stamped and embossed on them.
DA0666 Bookman ABC Set (Lowercase) and DA2826 Retreat vibes sentiment was painted and glossed, along with some stars from DA2441 Stars #4 set.
DA3163 Gingerbread houses small were also painted and waxed with white wax so that it filled the lasered areas of the chipboard. These were then embellished with mini peppermint and snowflake embellishments.
DA 3141 Holly #4 was painted and parts waxed and glossed as well. The layout was finished off with coloured mini glass pebbles and drops of glittery stickles.
Below is a snapshot of the Dusty Attic Chipboard used in this project. I hope it inspires you to get out your Christmas Photos and scrap them! Until next time Dusty Fanatics, take care!

Sweet Memories - Patricia Basson

Good day dear Bloggy friends at this first Blogpost for 2023!
For my first post for Dusty Attic I chose again this lovely photo of Chantelle at her Matric Farewell Dance. 
I used papers from 13Arts, the Aria Story and Out of the Blue Collections. I distressed the papers by punching random borders and used several rub-ons as well.  

I gesso'd the Fancy Frame, Broken Bits and Mini Caption. The 'sweet' I painted with Salvaged Patina Distress Paint. The Frames and Broken Bits were painted with a Yellow Acrylic Paint, Warm Red paint from Stamperia and Crackling Campfire Distress Paint. I also splashed some watered down gesso on them.

On the Iron Garnish and 'Memories' I used Dublin Metallic Flakes from Finnabair.

The Dusty Attic On-line Store is filled with these and many many more amazing designs...

 and let it discourage you,
or you can call it experience 
and let it teach you.
