Remember – Tina Ollett

Hello Dusty Attic friends !

I am back once more to greet you with a project completed over the last week. 

This is my project

I pondered for quite some time about which photo I would use for this project and then it came to me. It isn’t a great photo but for me it really is about the memories that each picture provokes for me. I remember taking my 3 children to the Centennial Lakes for a morning out on our bikes and this I thought was one of the cutest photos from that day. My third who has a very adventurous soul, just took off on her little bike leaving us all behind. That is where I usually was with her, right behind………….

So about the project. I used the 49andMarket collection Sweet Reflections to create with for my project this time around. 

To start out I did a lot of fussy cutting and I also used the Laser Cuts from the same collection to start off the base of my page. I did some matting with left over papers to lay my cute photo over.  I then tied the gorgeous and very elegant frame over the top of the frame to help it create more focus on my photo. This was dressed with Crackle medium and allowed to dry. I used some Distress Inks to colour it to match in with my project.

Ornate Frame #1

Below you can see that I have also used the gorgeous and I have to admit my newest favourite as I said a few weeks back. It is the Iron Garnish #6. A simply stunning piece that I think we all should have a couple of packs on standby, just saying! Again this piece was dressed with gesso and inks. I also added a Dusty Attic pearl to it as well.

And here below I have used the first of the ATC Frames to break up the foliage and flowers in the clusters. This was dressed the same as previous pieces. I cut this piece in half to go further.



And above here you can see the addition of one of the Clock Faces without the hands that I have added in behind the photo matting and foliage. It was simply primed with white gessso and coloured with Distress Inks to compliment the layout.

Well that is all from me today.

Happy Crafting and big hugs xxx
