Feelin' Groovy with Dusty Attic

Hi again,

I'm back with my January layout for The Dusty Attic. I've also submitted it for the January Punky Scraps Challenge.  The feature of this layout is a new chipboard design which has just been released. It's called Geometric Panel and it's amazing! As soon as I saw it I instantly thought 'retro' and knew which photos I wanted to use with it.

Here's my layout:

I love the riot of colour on this! Making that background isn't hard - here's what I did. I first took the full sheet of the Geometric Panel and laid it on my 12 x 12 white cardstock. I then sprayed Dylsuions sprays randomly over the chipboard. In effect, the chipboard became a stencil. I then removed the chipboard and it left that gorgeous background. A bonus is that I still have the full brightly coloured chippie shape to use on another project!

I then took a Geometric border, which matches the Geometric Panel, and painted this with Dusty In Colour paint in Soot. When it was dry I gave it a coat of Dusty In Colour Clear Gloss Varnish. I gave the Heart Arrows the same treatment.

I added some Celestial White Dusty In Bloom flowers which were a lovely simple flower to compliment this page.

To make the title I used some glitter Thickers plus some Doodlebug glitter letters and outlined them in black pen.  All the other embellishments were just the shapes taken from these letter packs.

Here are the Dusty Attic products I used on this page:

Geometric Panel - DA1037
