Vicky blogging today… I decided to try something a little different and extend the “collage” Dusty Attic theme that we used on our ATC projects this month – to create a manly layout in honour of Father’s day that just passed. I used the last bits of my June Swirlydoos “Brass Shilling” kit and a picture of my husband from our trip to Europe (11 years ago – I just can’t remember if this photo was taken in France or Italy).
I used the brand new small filmstrips chipboard set and joined them together to create a railroad effect at the top of my page and tucked a piece of the large skeleton clock under the corrugated cardboard. Next, I cut the chipboard title in half and placed it in two parts on my layout. I used a mini lamp post too and placed it right onto my picture (simply covered it with black DA “soot” paint and clear crackle varnish).
To finish the chipboard, I used inks on the filmstrips and clock and then used gesso and DA “Navajo” white paint on the title. I also dry brushed the paint on the corrugated cardboard. Behind the flowers are some DA paper rose leaves too (love these!).
I used the awesome June DA sketch, created by Mistra, as an inspiration point for this layout. Don’t forget to enter the monthly sketch challenge for a chance to win some chipboard goodness! See details on the Dusty Attic NING.
