School Photo and Library – Belinda Spencer

Hello Dusty Attic fans!

Belinda here today to share two layouts I created featuring the fabulous BRAND NEW school themed chippies. These chipboard pieces are just perfect for school photos and believe it or not this is the first time in EIGHT years I have ever scrapped a school photo. It seems I have some catching up to do! Lucky I now have the most perfect embellishments to use on my long overdue layouts.

‘School Photo’

Oh my!! Such a cute photo of my darling daughter and sweet son! I chose a colour theme for my layout to match their school uniform of light and dark blue. I began by swiping some Oceania Dusty in Colour Paint across my background using a silicone brush.

I then stamped the word ‘click’ from the Darkroom Door Photography stamp set several times from top to bottom. 
I coloured the BRAND NEW Rulers chipboard pieces as well as the mini numbers using a white Posca Paint Pen. It took about three coats to get a lovely crisp white.
I took the word ‘school’ from the BRAND NEW Word Pack # 42 and painted it with the Oceania Paint.

I slipped a cute Mini Tab in above my photo that I had also painted using the white Posca Pen.
I used the Typewriter ABC Set to add in the word ‘Photo’ after painting it with Denim Dusty In Colour Paint.

For this layout I stuck to the same colour scheme also to match my daughter’s school uniform colours. This is her very first school photo! She looks so little and cute and nervous for her first photo.

To create the background for this layout, I first added a thin coat of clear gesso to my background cardstock. Once dry, I spritzed the background with water and added diluted Oceania paint. I also flicked some of the diluted Oceania paint as well as some Denim paint over the background and allowed to dry. I used my white Posca Paint Pen to add some flicks of white also.
All of the fabulous white chipboard pieces were coloured with that same paint pen.

I used the white Posca Pen as well as one in aqua to colour the cute book stack chipboard and finished with a little Denim paint for the leaf on top of the apple.
How cute are those chipboard paper clips?!! I love them so much.
I coloured the adorable little chipboard pencils with the white paint pen again and then added the aqua one on top. I left the ‘wood’ part of the pencil raw.

The ruler and the ABC 123 Border were painted with the same Dusty in Colour paints as used on the background.

I hope I have inspired you to pull out some school photos and create some beautiful pages featuring these awesome new release chipboard pieces.
