Dusty Attic Mood board

Hi there, as most of you are aware Dusty Attic have a new Mood Board for you to play along with this year and the prize each month makes it well worth you playing along, make sure you pop over to the blog or the facebook page and play along, while you are there be sure to have a look around at all the amazing inspiration and products that are available.

My layout is very simple but I think the amazing depth in the colors of this Mood board where strong enough to compensate the simplicity of the layout.

I loved the use of the raw chipboard pieces on this layout, they just seemed to pop out and I think they look awesome raw.

I have listed for you the Dusty Attic products I have used to create this layout :

Mini Birds On A wire
Mini Bird Cage #2
Word Tags #1
Swirly Vine #4 Small
Live Beautifully ...

A Dusty gift for a special lady

I have been wanting to create a layout for my Mother in law, who is my biggest fan, she loves my creations and is always so full of praise and encouragement for me, I really appreciate her support and hope she liked her gift. I have helped her along and she is now the creator of some amazing cards and of course she just loves to overload them with her favorite Dusty Attic chipboard.

I used a fair bit of chipboard on this one as there were just so many pieces that suited the layout.

I have listed the Dusty Attic pieces I have used below :

Birdcage #6
Mini Birdcage #2
Mini ABC #2
Mini Number set
Mini Words #1
Leafy Scroll
Clock Faces and Hands ( I only used the hands)
Flutterbies #3
Mini Butterflies #2

     I scrapped this layout last week as I was really wanting to use this photo of my Grand Daughter Shontay, even though you cant see her face, we had a great time with the camera this particular day, she grabbed this hat of mine and was dancing around on the grass having such a magical time.  Of course I was off like a rocket to grab the camera.

I love the birds on the wire Chipboard and just felt it would suit the look and feel of this layout added with some other whimsical pieces and a title it came together really well.

I painted all my chipboard pieces white, lightly sanded them to give them the shabby look and painted the birds using liquid pearls, they are light but added just a bit of color.

Dusty Attic pieces used are :

Birds on a wire : DA0708 
Precious :  DA0035

Cigar Box

I made this Cigar box quite awhile ago but due to magazine publication I couldn't share it with you, however it was in the magazine last month so I thought I might share with you now as I really loved this little box. I actually put a bottle of perfume in it and gave it to my Mother in law, she is my greatest supporter and its always great to share my creations with her as I just know she will cherish them forever.

I painted the box white and decorated it with some gorgeous Prima papers, then added Some Dusty Attic chipboard. I painted my nest white to suit my shabby theme and placed a bird in the nest. I also added a floral cluster, some bling and a handle to the top as well.

Dusty Attic Products used

Birds on a branch #3
Mini Butterflies #2
Teeny Tiny ABC Set
