I had so much fun creating this layout! I actually created it with two challenges in mind. The first one, Dusty Attic Sketch Challenge. I was very pleased to find out that my LSS started carrying DA products. I used their monthly sketch on my layout to play along but positioned my embellishment 'wreath' from corner to corner instead of top to bottom.
When it came time to choose the papers, I drew inspiration in the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger:
Love these beautiful colors and they happened to be the same ones in the gorgeous Once Upon A Springtime collection by Graphic 45. These papers are lots of fun to work with and just perfect for fussy cutting, so fussy cutting I did!
I added texture and dimenson with pop dots, crochet lace and stickles. My daughter loved the outcome almost as much as she loves fairies so we decided to place in in a shadow box and hang it in her room.
To create a more realistic effect on my DA chipboard pieces, I embossed them and then painted the raised surfaces with black acrylic paint. Once dry, I inked the entire piece with Timber Brown Staz-On ink. The Recollections flowers were misted with Rose Tea and Wheatfields Glimmer Mist. I also inked all of the papers with Tea Dye Distress Ink.
Thanks so much for visiting! I really enjoy having you and reading your sweet comments!
