~Dusty Attic~

I am back again today with another Dusty Attic page.  This time no blooms, just chippies.  The photo below is of my daughter, Tyler.  She took and edited this photo herself.   I am using a new camera and trying to figure out settings, so some of my pics are off in color, but I am working on it!!  I love my new camera by the way and in case you are wondering what it is...  It's a preowned Canon 1ds Mark ii!!
 If you have a chance to get thin grapevines, get them!!  I used a super thin piece on the top of this Art Deco Frame Set chippie!  I painted the frame with black glimmer glaze.

 This is one of the new nameplate chippies....  Nameplates #5.  I coated mine with black embossing powder.
 Check out the mini light bulbs on this page lol!! No clue where I got them, but they are super cute!!
Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!

~Dusty Attic Chippies and Blooms~

 This last winter I got a new puppy named Alli and I finally got around to scrapping a picture of her!!  She is a Border Collie mix and she is so cute!!  For this page I used items from older Scraps of Elegance kits and used some of the brand new chippies and bloom from Dusty Attic!!
 Here is a close up of the birdcage #5 chippie that I coated with embossing powder.  In the background I used the Sweet Hearts chippie for a mask.  
 My butterflies were made from five petal flowers that I cut a petal from.  I kind of liked them being plain.  
 Here is a close up of some of the Dusty Blooms..  For this layout I used Wild Moss and Champagne Kisses along with some of the Dusty in Bloom Leaves.

~Donna Salazar Botanique Collection~

Hi all, Mandy here!!  I'm back to show you some of the totally gorgeous Botanique papers along with Donna's yummy bling as well.  Plus I added in a quick how to on making a  starburst background out of triangles.  So here we go!!
 You will need to make a triangle template about 3.5 inches wide at the base and 4.5 inches tall in the center.  
 Now trace your triangle template as show below.  You will need 9 triangles to make the one I did.  Don't worry if your edges have pen marks because we will be distressing and inking them.
 Distress your edges :)
 Time to ink!!  I used the color Denim for my edges.
 Arrange them on the page in the spot you want.  I let mine hang over and then trimmed them down after I glued them.  After this you can choose to layer circles over the top or place a photo.  It's up to you!! 
 Here are a few close ups of the final layout!!

Thanks for stopping by!!  Below is a list of the products I used to create this page!!

~Scraps of Darkness April Reveal~

Another month and another amazing kit from Scraps of Darkness!! This month's kit is called Sakurabana, which means Cherry Blossom in Japanese.  This kit is another completely gorgeous and versatile kit!! I love working with kits that can take you different directions and SOD is the best for doing that!!  You don't want to miss out on this fantastic kit!!

There was some gorgeous red and black papers in this kit, so I had to finish scrapping my Red Riding Shots of my daughter, Tyler.  This first layout is based on the April sketch by Charlotte aka Suepup.

 This is a close up of the pin I did for this month!

 This is a photo of Rylee that she took of herself.  I love the sneer she has on her face lol.  

 I totally love triangles now.  I think they add a really cool and different element to pages.
 Here's my second Red Riding Hood page.  
 I decorated the Dusty Attic chippie with red and black glimmer glaze by Tattered Angels.  Then I glued tiny rhinestones on it as well.

 The crimped paper strips came as packing material.  I had some brown colored ones that I have used in the past and then a new package arrived with black strips.  I was so excited!! :D

 This layout is one of my more simple pages, but it shows the other side to this kit with the soft papers.  The photos are of my daughter, Tyler and were taken by my other daughter, Rylee.

 The material you see was from a shirt one of my kids was altering, so I thought I would use it on this layout.  
 I did both faux and real hand stitching for this page.
Thanks for stopping by and God Bless!!
