So Proud

Hi there! I'm here with you today to share my layout using the gorgeous May mood board from The Dusty Attic as my inspiration.

Here's the mood board. Don't you just love the colours?

Don't forget there is a $100 prize pack up for grabs over on the blog here.

I just had to use those gorgeous teals and greys, but I also added some red for some pops of contrast. Here's what I made:

One of my new fave chippies is this French Flourish, which I coated in silver Beck BT's Tinby Design Metallic Melts. It's stunning!

I only used half of a flourish here. I cut part of the remainder off to add to the title cluster. I coated the title with silver ink and  a sprinkling of Carbon Metallic Melts to give that grungy, mottled appearance. Dusty Attic have just released a heap of new word packs with great words like this one. Gosh they make creating titles easy! That gorgeous stamp is from IndigoBlu.

That framework behind the photo is actually the waste from an Old Wooden Fence chippie. A coat of silver Metallic Melts and it takes on a whole new lease of life! I also added a house from the Main Street set and a Him & Her chippie on the other side. To get that funky stenciling on the background, I mixed Soot Dusty in Colour paint with impasto and spread it through the stencil.

Dusty Attic products I used are:

Old Wooden Fence small DA1166
(waste only)

Main Street DA0408

Him & Her Border DA1065

French Flourish 2 DA0274

Word Pack #12 DA1268

Dusty in Colour Mountain Meadow, Capri and Soot.

Happy scrappin'!
