A Dusty Christmas!

Hello there! I'm back today with a bit of Dusty Attic Christmas cheer.

Santa came early to my house and delivered a box of Dusty Attic goodies so I just had to use them straight away. I followed the gorgeous December sketch:

Here's what I created:

I've used a mix of new and older chippies here. I always love the new releases but still go back to older designs as well.

I love the new word packs. I used a combination of letters, a word from a new word pack and numbers to make my title. I coated the letters and numbers with Dusty in Colour paints and the word with Beck BT's Tinby Designs Metallic Melts.

Isn't the picture my daughter drew for my son amazing?

I layered the chippies up in places. Here I have an Elegant Swirl under a Music stave under a Word Disk. I love that you can see through some of these layers and see the chippies underneath. As before, I have coated them with different Dusty in Colour paints and gold Metallic Melts.

I painted all the notes on the music stave and scattered stars across the page.

The Dusty Attic products I used are:
Elegant Swirl # 13 DA1133

Word Disks #1 DA1195

Music DA0351

Word Pack #7 DA1165

Bookman ABC Set DA0666

mini Number Set DA0863

mini Him & Her DA1064 

Stars #3 DA1153

mini Stars DA1040

Dusty in Colour Paints - Denim, Faded Denim, Alabaster and Soot.

Don't forget you can now buy Dusty Attic products online here. (Be warned - it's dangerous looking at this site - there are so many amazing products on here!)

I hope you take some wonderful Christmas shots this year and have just as much fun scrapping them as you did enjoying the Christmas moments.

Happy scrappin'!
