Hello everyone and welcome to my first ever Dusty Attic blogpost! 
My name is Valia Katzaki and I am a shabby scrapper from sunny Greece. I love chipboard and flowers, is there any better scrappy combination? Dusty Attic has the most amazing designs and I couldnt be more thankful to Jennifer Hedger and Jen Burns for having me on the team! 
This is a dream come true for me!
Let me say that opening my DT package was a thrilling experience. All these beautiful products, the chipboard, the flowers, the acrylics and the stencils inspired me to scrap in a most romantic way. 
Here is our January moodboard

And this is my layout
I treated the backgroung with a script DA stencil and Shimmerz Texturez. 
The word “Special” was first primed with gesso and then painted with Twinkling H2Os. I cut the corners from the elegant chain and I tucked them in my clusters. To achieve a different shade of the same color, I used the same paint but I didnt gesso the piece first. I treated the Scrolls the same way. 
I painted the Ivy corners with Finnabair Mica Powder mixed with gloss medium. I generously dabbed the leaves with paint to get extra texture. When the leaves were dry, I dilluted Dusty in Color Raisin with lots of water and I washed the leaves in oder to highlight the raised areas. It gave the leaves a kind of succulent look. 

all chipboard can be purchased direct from the Dusty Attic website, and there is free shipping when you order over $75.00 worth world wide.

The Dusty Attic chipboard pieces were so amazing that I couldnt help myself so I made two cards as well. For the first card I used a piece of the Tickets set and the ATC Frame #4

For the second card, I used the inside leftover of the ATC frame as a frame for my sentiment. Even the leftovers are too great not to use!
