Two Double Layouts – Adri Du Preez

Hello everyone!

I am sharing my March design team layouts with you, inspired by the Week 9 sketch designed by Jennifer Hedger. She has designed a sketch for every week, and they are stunning!  Check out the Dusty Attic Face Book page for these weekly sketches and inspiration.

This is my two grandchildren, Mila and Janco.  They just love playing with water and sand and I have endless photos of them.  When I make a layout for the one I always try and make a layout for the other one.  This sketch is perfect for this purpose.  I just changed the colour, title and elements and I have a boy and girl layout.

Here is the sketch.

Here is my first layout. A LITTLE DIRT NEVER HURT

This is how I treated the chippies.

 I coloured the title with a white Posca pen.

The flowers and Polaroid Frame were painted with acrylic paint.

These very cute Toadstools were coloured with Versa Magic Chalk Ink in Pink Petunia and Sea Breeze and the white dots with the white Posca pen.

I covered the Wordpl@y #2 and #7 with white gesso, making sure I get into the letters.  Once dry, I dry brushed the words with acrylic paint.

When everything was glued down I added art stones and splatters with diluted white gesso.

Here is my second layout. SOAKING UP THE SUN

This is how I treated the chippies.

I heat embossed the title with white embossing powder. The Geo Tag were painted with dark blue acrylic paint and Glossy Accents.

The Polaroid Frames were painted with acrylic paint.

I coloured the bubbles with blue and dark blue acrylic paint. I popped out the inside circles and covered them with glossy accents and glitter. Once dry, I glued them back in the circles and some were randomly glued to the layout.

Some close ups.

These are the Dusty Attic chipboard pieces that I used.
