Dream – Tina Ollett (Challenge inspiration)

Welcome back and hello!
I hope this post finds you happy and well. Today I have for you a Moodboard inspired layout. Dusty Attic’s June moodboard is AMAZING !!!!! I absolutely love this as you can well imagine. I am not really a pink girl but everything about this is totally gorgeous! Wouldn’t you agree? There are still a few days left for you to create something to submit to be in the running to win a fantastic voucher worth $100 of Dusty goodness. That would buy a fantastic amount of chipboard!!
 Just saying…………..

And my layout created with this beautiful moodboard above is titled………


I have used a combination of Maja Designs gorgeously stunning Vintage Summer and Vintage Spring Basics collection to create my layered background of torn and distressed papers.

Now here is where all the Dusty goodness begins………arghhhhhhhh. Here I am going to explain that from time to time I have a favourite chipboard. And lets just say it may be the Fleur de Lis …… well I will put this in a little basket right at arms reach on my scrap table. And almost each layout I create I will reach into this little basket. I can’t tell you how often I have wanted to use this piece……but finally it happened for the perfect project. I think it just fit wonderfully here. You can see these pieces above cut into 2’s and tucked amoungst my paper layers. Yay I was so happy when this worked!

I love these Dusty Title chipboards. They are totally gorgeous. This one was dressed in some Dusty Attic Sugar Plum acrylic paint and then I toned it down a little to compliment my page with some white gesso and of course some Dress My Craft sparkling dust……..

I have also used Dusty’s Swirly Frame which is another favourite of course. It was cut into two and used to frame these beautiful photo’s of my daughter Ashlea. We held a Mad Hatters Tea Party a little while back and she dressed as the Queen and looked just stunning. These photos of course were changed to a Sepia tone to help fit my layout and the moodboard.

Here you can see my Fleur de Lis coloured with inks and paints. Atop of it I sat the small Decorative #1 frame and then on top of that a Mini Clock Face. The mini clockfaces are the perfect fit for this frame!!

Okay and I love me a little or quite a lot however you look at it of the Dress My Craft

Princess Mix Sequins. I also gave my layout a good sprinkling of  Dress My Craft’s Sparkling Dust just to make it shine that little bit more.

I also added in some florals but I kept it quite minimal for me that it. Above you can see the 49andMarket Floral Mixology flowers that I used. These are the Pina Colada coloured florals that I changed up by wiping over with a little Dusty Sugar Plum acrylic paint. 

I have also tucked in a little lace and muslin to keep the layout as soft as possible.

And lastly these gorgeous gorgeous Dusty Attic Heart Arrows. I have dressed both the large and the small chippies in some Star Dust Stickles to really make them pop. I then added them into my clusters of flowers. 

Well that is all from me today. I hope you have a beautiful weekend and find some time for you !

Big hugs …..
