Dusty Attic - Little Moments


Today I am sharing a double page layout I created using some gorgeous Dusty chipboard and the beautiful Vintage Hollywood collection by Graphic 45.

This month the Boss Lady released a stack of new chipboard and stencils. The stencils are AMAZING! The star one fitted perfectly with my theme.

'Little Moments'

I applied gold texture paste through the Star stencil in the background and then layered bucket loads of fussy cut stars to the top.

To frame my photos I have used my favorite ATC frames. The frames are normally oval but with a gentle stretch they can be made into a circle. These were both painted with black gesso and them misted with gold mica powder.

The base of both of my clusters were started with the Industrial Barbed Stars set. These were also just painted with black gesso and misted with gold mica powder.

Graphic 45 - Father's Day Card

Dropping by today for a quick post to share a card I created for Graphic 45. I love the colours of the Communique collection, they are beautifully neutral and I think perfect for making a masculine Father's Day card.

Dusty Attic - Altered Lighthouse

Hi Everyone!!

Dropping in today sharing my latest creation created for the gorgeous Dusty Attic May 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 May Mood Board.

This mood board have a very beachy theme so I decided to alter a light house that I have had for like forever. So my inspiration was the theme of the board and also the colours.

This is my interpretation of the mood board.


I decorated the outside of the lighthouse with 2 pieces from the Wrought Iron set. I have used one of the large wrought iron pieces and folded around the bottom light house and I also added one of the other trim pieces to the centre. This worked really well to add detail to the outside of the lighthouse.

The arch at the top of the door was created with a little scrap chipboard folded and shaped, I then cut a medium cog in half and attached to the top, I then cut the top off of one of the vintage keys and added to the arch for extra detail.

Dusty small branches were added to the twiggy vine and the to help add softness I added some frayed cheesecloth. For the top part of the lighthouse I added some of the medium sized dusty cogs. I cut the middle out from the cogs and gently pushed them over the top peek of the roof. Large cogs were also used to make the top balcony larger.
