November Dusty Attic Sketch

Hello again.

I hope you're having a good week. I've managed to get some scrapping done so my week has been good! One of the layouts I made is for the November Dusty Attic sketch. Here is the sketch:

And here's what I created:

Isn't that photo stunning? My mum took it on one of my parents' camping trips to South Australia last year. I'll give this layout to them to keep.

The chippie under the photo is a Swirly Vine #4. To colour it I put some Hot Chocolate Dusty In Colour paint in a mini spray bottle, added water and sprayed the paint on. It's much quicker than hand painting it all. I added a few random sections of Gingernut paint on too. I painted the flowers with Sunburnt Orange and Sunshine paints and added Bronze Beck BT's Tinby Designs Metallic Melts to the leaves.

To colour the chippie letters I simply inked them then added Metallic Melts.

The background is one I had previously made from stamping the leftovers from stenciling projects onto a piece of cardstock. I love that I can just rummage through my pre-made backgrounds for something to suit a particular photo.
