Dusty in October

Hello again! I'm back to share a layout I made using the gorgeous Dusty Attic October mood board for my inspiration.

We've had such beautiful weather here lately yet the mood board still inspired me to think about some of my favourite places in the sunshine near the sea. Santorini would have to be at the top of my list!

Here's what I made:

This main chippie is one of my favourites ever! It's called Decorative Scroll #1 and it's so easy to make something special with it. It consists of two pieces - the wider backpiece and the finer front piece. You then layer the front one onto the back one. For this project, I painted the back piece with Silver Dusty Attic paint and the front piece with Mountain Meadow paint. I then coated both with relevant colours of Tinby Designs Metallic Melts. I gave the title and the hearts a similar treatment.

You can just see some different shapes peeping out from behind the scroll. I used Mountain Meadow paint through a Dusty Attic stencil. This was great for adding a bit of extra depth and detail.

I love the way the Hearts chippies can be split into open and closed hearts. That's double the value - awesome!

Here's the mood board. Isn't it beautiful? I was influenced by the sea photo, the circular shape the wave made, the sunset and the colours. I sure hope you can join in this month. Don't forget - you can win $100 worth of chippies!

Here are the Dusty Attic products I used:

Word Pack #19 DA 1275
