Dusty Attic - Big Memories

Hi Everyone!!

Dropping in today sharing my latest creation created for the gorgeous Dusty Attic August Mood Board Challenge. The challenge has an amazing prize of a $100 Dusty Attic Gift Voucher for the winner and to enter you simply need to use the Mood Board for Inspiration, you can interpret it anyway you like. The only requirement is that Dusty Attic chipboard is used in your creation. Once completed simply add your link to the right side bar of the Dusty Attic Blog.

So this is the August Mood Board.

I really loved the weathered feel of this board but my main inspiration come from the main quote and background colour behind it, my eye was also drawn to the clock which is why I chose to go with the circle shapes as a main feature of my page.

And this is my interpretation.

'Big Memories'

My little man makes my world a more beautiful place.

I have added lots of texture to this page topped with layers of Dusty chippy. Totally loving the Dusty Bubbles the solid circle chippy pieces were the push outs from the centre of the bubbles and are perfect for extra layering and background interest.

I love the mini caption titles they are always the perfect size for my pages.

All of my chippy was painted with gesso and then most was given a very light wash of colour.

Prima - Dreamcatcher


Quick post today to share a dreamcatcher I created using some of the new Prima Gypsy Cord. I love that the rolls of this cord are colour coordinated and are in an array of different textures. For my dreamcatcher I chose to use the softer colour threads as I wanted my dreamcatcher to be quiet shabby and feminine.


I love the softness of colour and texture. I created a cluster of Prima flowers and added some of the super cute small bird and window Shabby Resin Treasures.

How cute are the little birds?

The feathers on the bottom are Dusty Attic chipboard which I water distressed and the painted with gesso and inked with a Chalk Edger to my desired colour.

Graphic 45 - ABC Primer Notebook Mini Album


Dropping in today to share a little mini album I created using the super cute ABC Primer collection. For this project using ABC Primer I decided to create a little album from scratch, It features an ABC pullout, a little book of sums, pockets galore for little mementos, a folding mini album and a notebook. On the outside of the album on the spine I have used 2 Door Pulls to create a place to hold the pencil.

'ABC Primer Mini Album'

The pencil sits within the antique door pulls.

A place to learn the alphabets...

The little book of sums..for learning :)

The book of ME within the album allows for up to 5 photos and all folds into its little folding cover.

The back of the album features a little notebook that can be used for journalling.
