Dusty in September

Hello and welcome back!

Today I have a layout to share that I made using the stunning new September Dusty Attic mood board as my inspiration. I adore these mood boards. Has there been a single one yet that hasn't been an amazing artwork in itself?

Here's what I made this month:

I loved the dark coppery colours and gorgeous teals on the mood board so I used these on my page.

Taking my cue from the bottom right picture, I focused on shimmery, metallic accents, using metallic paints and Tinby Design Metallic Melts. Unfortunately it hasn't photographed well, with the gold and copper elements looking more orange than anything else!

I never throw out chipboard off-cuts. They can be used in so many ways. I used some off-cuts to make the 'film frame'. They were perfect! I also cut up a music notes set to make individual notes that I could scatter around the page.

I used up the last of my mini banners on this. I'll have to re-stock cos I adore them! I've used the heart  button again - I find this so versatile that I seem to use it on almost every page lately.

The Dusty Attic products I used are:

Music DA0351

Mini Banners DA1021

Mini Heart buttons DA0682

Mini ABC Set Upper DA0861
and Mini ABC Set Lower DA0862

Waste Strips from various chipboards

I hope you're going to join in the mood board challenge this month. Don't forget there's a $100 Dusty Attic voucher up for grabs!

Happy scrappin'!
