From Paris with Love by Gabbi

Hi There, it’s Gabrielle here with you today to share a new project!!  Today I get to share with you all a peek at the NEW goodies from two of my design teams! I just love it when two of my teams have products that just work so well with each other!  A short while ago I had asked Jennifer Hedger (the owner/designer of Dusty Attic Designs) if she would make up a bicycle chippie for us….below is the cute design she came up with!  I could think of so many ways this cute chippie could work on a l/o, from romantic to an awesome ‘boy’ style page!  And I just love the fine detailing she puts into her chipboard pieces!  Not just the finely cut spokes on the wheels but even the fine weaving in the basket!
At the same time, Brandin (owner/designer) of Websters Pages came out with her NEW Postcards from Paris II collection!  I was just so in love with this collection first time around and she sure did not disappoint with her round two of this old favourite!  I love this paper with the trees in bloom, and I thought the bicycle would be the perfect romantic embellishment for this one!

For my bicycle I gave my whole piece a coating of white Gesso and then some Dusty In Color Paint (Navajo White).  I then I used the Dusty In Color (Dusty Pink) to paint the body of the bicycle.  I wanted a super glossy paint job look for my bicycle so I added an nice coat of the Dusty Attic Gloss Medium.  I just love the way it came out!  I topped the bicycle basket with a bunch of Dusty mini-roses. 
I also used one of the cute Dusty Attic Blossoms (Bridal Veil) for this page as well.  The other blooms were just fussy cut blooms from the WP papers.  In the corner of the page I used a Baroque Corner Scroll and topped it with a WP Cameo.  I painted the scroll with Gesso and then some Navajo white, stamped on it and then added Dusty Attic Crackle Medium.
Here are all the Dusty Attic Products I used for this project….
Dusty Attic Product:
Bicycle, Baroque Corners, Dusty In Bloom (Bridal Veil), Dusty Roses (Latte, Pink, White), Dusty In Color (Navajo White paint, Dusty Rose paint), DA Gloss Varnish.
I hope you all enjoyed my project today!  If you haven’t seen the newest releases for July yet you can fin them HERE.  There are so many beautiful new designs from intricate new garden gates, film strips and branch to new background texture/designs. xo
