A Bright and Sunny Dusty Attic

Hi there!

I'm back today to share another Dusty Attic project. I was looking for something in my paper stash the other day and I came across a pack of older papers. I just dismissed them then, as I shifted them forward, the back of one of them caught my eye. The yellow paper was gorgeous! I promptly pulled out the pack and ended up using some parts of the other papers as well. I didn't particularly like some of them much but it just worked! There were also rub-ons in the pack which again were quite dated but I liked what they did to the page.

As you can see, having a striking photo and some fantastic Dusty Attic chippies helps! I had previously spray-painted a whole sheet of chevrons white. It's great when you can just grab a piece and it's already painted. It only takes a few moments to spray-paint a whole sheet so this is a really time-effective thing to do.

I painted the leaves of the daffodil in Jungle Green, the petals in Navajo White, the sticky-outy bit in Cashmere and the centre in Sunshine. This really isn't hard to do and the paint dries so quickly. All the other chippies were painted in Soot.

I've scattered some Heidi Swapp stamping around the background.

Don't forget to join in the Dusty Attic challenge this month. There's a whopping $100 Dusty Attic prize to be won!
