Today’s favourite – Heather Woodall

 Good morning. This time I’ve gone with a creamy beige theme for my layout to keep it all very neutral and subtle.

I chose the Spring Blooms #4 Dusty Attic Chipboard out to play with this time. I loved the size and how much is in this pack.

I was going to use my Prismacolor pencils to colour them, but after I went through my stash of papers (I’m trying to use up what I’ve got stored away), I decided to just use really soft colours of ink on them applied with a dauber. I’ve used brown ink on the branches, a sagey green (yep, technical term) and a soft pink on the petals.

Once I figured out roughly where I wanted everything to go on my page, I started by applying Ranger’s Texture Paste Metallic White through the Dusty Attic Distressed Diamonds stencil (DA1480E). I did sprinkle some very fine glitter over the top of the texture paste while it was still wet. Unfortunately, no matter what I tried I couldn’t get it to show clearly in a photo.

I then re-assembled my page, but this time I stuck it down using a combination of levels of foam tape to give height. I even pulled out my box of 49 and Market flowers, and my box of old pieces of lace to tuck in and around the page.

The title I very simply just used the same brown ink that I had on the flower branches, and then once dry I added just a hint of gold wax.

All of the chipboard and stencil used on this page can be purchased at Dusty Attic – Australian owned and operated Laser Cutting business – Dusty Attic is an Australian owned and operated Laser Cutting business, which designs and manufactures craft items and embellishments.
