A Dusty Sampler

Hello scrappy friends! I'm back with you today to show you how you can make a simple but striking multi-photo page using Dusty Attic chippies. This is not only a great way to experiment with products but it's a fabulous way of using up those leftover bits and pieces from your chippie collection.

Here's my layout;

To make this, I first drew 9 rough squares using the inside of a Polaroid Frame chippie as my template. I then used a variety of products to colour the squares. I incorporated paints, texture paste, stamps, stencils and - oh! It's that Dusty Attic star stencil again! Lol!

I then added small photos onto some of the squares and decorated them with Dusty Attic chippies as well as a few other bits and pieces. To finish off I doodled around some of the squares and added a bit of gold stamping to the background.

This would be a great page for any event where you have multiple photos as you can change the colours and style to suit.

If you do make a page like this, I'd love to see it!

The Dusty Attic products I used are:
Polaroid Frames DA0932
(used as a template)

Mini Banners DA1021

Flutterbies #3 DA 0766

Mini Bird Cage #2 DA1189

Heart Arrows #1 DA 1016

Heart Arrows #2 DA 1026

Mini Hearts #2 DA 0990

Foliage #3

Word Pack #4 DA 1077

Page Pebbles #3 and #9

Mini Him & Her Border DA 1065

Phew! That was a long list! But seriously, the idea is to use up those odds and ends you have left over from other projects.

Happy scrappin'!
