Hello again!  I'd like to share a canvas that I REALLY enjoyed making.  I just let my imagination and creativity run wild with this one and I love how it turned out!
The background of the canvas is decorated with muslin, ceramic stucco and lace.  I inked, spritzed and painted all of the elements to get this gorgeous color.  (You can find a list of the colors used at the end of this post.)
The floral clusters are made up of Prima flowers, Green Tara flowers and the Dusty Attic Floral Corners (DA0848).  The little diamante hearts were sent to me all the way from Australia by my bestie!


The chipboard element framing the canvas is The Dusty Attic's Devine Frame Set (DA0733).  To get the gorgeous color and texture shown here, I sprayed the chipboard with Black Orchid Silver by Lindy's Stamp Gang and then used a grid stamp to stamp clear embossing ink onto it.  I then added Hibiscus Rose Orange embossing powder, also by Lindy's Stamp Gang, and heat embossed the piece.

The chipboard elements used on this project can be purchased in my shop HERE.
Thanks for stopping by!  See you next time!

Hi peeps!  Today I have a layout to share using the Cold Country collection by 7 Dots Studio.  I love the subtle tones of these papers.
I added a touch of color to my background by spritzing Lindy's Stamp Gang ink, and I added texture using Ceramic Stucco and a template by The Crafters Workshop.  The little drops you see are called Dew Drops.  Love them!
To create my title I combined a cut piece from the Dusty Attic chipboard element called, "A Lifetime is..." (DA0929) and the word "always" from Mini Words #1 pack (DA0386).
My floral cluster is a combination of lovely flowers by Prima Marketing and chipboard scrolls by The Dusty Attic (DA0760 Scroll #9 and DA0762 Scroll #10).

Many of the products I used for this layout can be purchased in my shop.
Thanks for visiting!  See you next time!

Hi everyone!  I'd like to share a Dusty Attic Cigar Box that I altered for February's Inspiration Board Challenge over at The Dusty Attic.
(I'm a little late in posting this... sorry!)
To play along with the challenge, all you have to do is create a project using any of the Inspiration Board elements shown in the image.  The only rule is that your project must include at least one Dusty Attic chipboard item.  The prize is a $100 Gift Voucher to use on the Dusty Attic website!
I first painted the cigar box with white gesso and added a layer of ceramic stucco for texture.  I applied overlapping layers of tissue tape to the sides of the box to add some text to my project.  I then added Dusty Attic chipboard and sprayed Lindy's Stamp Gang ink in three colors - Cosmopolitan Pink, Open Arms Amethyst and Amaryllis Burgundy.
My floral clusters are made up of a mixture of Prima Marketing flowers and mulberry flowers.
The title on the box is part of a set of three titles (DA1170 Live Beautifully...).
You can purchase Dusty Attic chipboard in my shop HERE.
Thanks for stopping by today!

 Hi friends!  Today I'm here to share a layout I created for the January Dusty Attic Inspiration Board.  This is a new challenge on the Dusty Attic blog, and if you decide to play along you could win a $100 gift voucher to the Dusty Attic store!  All you have to do is create a project using your interpretation of the Inspiration Board below.  The only requirement is that you include at least one Dusty Attic chipboard piece.  Don't have any?  You can purchase chipboard directly from the website or in my online store HERE.

For the title of my layout, I used a combination of Word Pack #5 and
Mini ABC Tile Set.  I decided to leave most of the chipboard on this layout unaltered because I love the natural color of it.  The color also worked well with the Inspiration Board.
I tucked in a few word disks here and there.  I love the sayings on them!
 I brushed a very light layer of white gesso on the number border to give it a worn look.
The background paper, by Maja Design, was altered with ink and texture medium.  I punched random areas of the paper and added stitching and staples for detail.

You can purchase the paper and chipboard that I used for this layout HERE.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a beautiful day!

 Hello friends!  I have a special reverse canvas to share with you today!  I made this as a gift, but I cannot yet reveal who it is for.  :oP

The background of the reverse canvas is covered with paper by Maja Design.
 All of the smaller blue flowers were handmade using Bitty Blossoms dies and were cut from Maja Design papers.  The remaining flowers are from a variety of flower collections (old & new) by Prima Marketing.
 The birdhouses, birds and grass border are all chipboard elements made by The Dusty Attic.  You can purchase them in my shop HERE.
 And of course, I couldn't forget to add these stunning chipboard flourishes to my floral clusters.
 I cut these birds out from Birds on a Branch #3 and inked the pieces with Mix'd Media Inx in various colors.
The frame was decorated with Ceramic Stucco, a tile texture stencil by The Crafters Workshop and embossing powder by Lindy's Stamp Gang.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I can't wait to share more of my projects with you!
Don't forget that you can purchase Dusty Attic chipboard and Maja Design paper in my shop HERE.
Have a beautiful day!
