Hello crafty friends. Tina back today with my next instalment of Dusty Attic goodness.
I have used Maja Designs gorgeous new release collection “Celebration” to create the background for my project and I decided to go with some earthy colours. However I have kept my chipboards quite simple. The Baroque Large Frame was used along with the corner Baroques to create a border line working diagonally up my layout. I have used two of the large frames. They were Crackled with a white Texture Crackle Paste. Once they dried I inked them with a little Walnut Stain distress Ink and then a little Inklingz from Shimmerz in the colour of Miner Miner.

The window shutters below were dressed similarly except that I peeled away some of the crackle to give that extra worn look and inked the chippie more in these areas to give some highlights.
Windows and Shutters Small
The birdbath as you see above was used in my left hand cluster wrapped up with the vines and sitting atop of the window shutters. I love my birdbaths they are just adorable!

And the Lacey hearts were dressed with Twinkle Twinkle Inklingz Shimmerz and then another random coating of Inklingz Miner Miner. Gives the chipboard that added touch of elegance.

And my last piece of yummy Dusty was the Roman Number IV. I have used this for the title to my project being that there are 4 of us in the photo. This is fast becoming another favourite chipboard piece for me. They are just big enough to highlight and area of a cluster.
And then there were the flowers………

|Cottage Blooms Linen|
And my flowers…… well I tend to love my flowers as much as I do my chipboard. They just go hand in hand. And so I used a few or okay a lot of 49andMarkets gorgeous blooms from a few different collections. I stayed with the earthy colours and added in some leaves, the 2 vines and also some fussy cut elements from the Celebration collection. The flowers are as listed above and below:
Garden Seeds Linen
Garden Seeds Cotton
Cottage Blooms Cotton
Well that is all from me today. I hope you have enjoyed my project and all the Dusty Chipboards that I have used today can be found HERE.
Until next time take care and happy scrapping.
