Double Layered Chippies from Dusty Attic!!


I was recently working on a l/o for a 'Grandparents' album for my mom and dad and scrapped this photo I took of Chloe a few years ago, since it was a photo my Dad really liked. I used this really cool double layered flourish chipboard piece by Dusty Attic that I'd been meaning to try out for a while now. I simply painted each layer seperately with some aqua color acrylic paint and some bronze metalic paint. I glued the two layers together (I used this new glue pen I got from Tombow to glue them together...it's awesome, great for glueing together detailed work). After the paint/glue dried I added a little bit of Distress Stickles in a Antique Bronze color....this gives the finished piece a flaked rust look when the Stickles dry. To finish it off I added some adhesive gems. The papers I used were from the My Minds Eye 'Lost & Found' collection. The blooms are Prima (thanks Pam!). Here are a few close-up detail shots of the page.....


Thanks so much for stopping by!! .....And if you have a moment, take a peek at the posts below for some fun contests and challenges that we are having over at MCS, the prizes are simply AWESOME!!

Your layout is a timeless beauty, just like Chloe is:) Amazing layering on here! That chipboard flourish is so gorgoeus and I just love what you've done with it. The colours on this layout are fabulous too.

Hello Gabrielle,
My name is Sue from N.Z. I found your Blog a few weeks ago, I just wanted to comment on your wonderful page. It is full of embellishment but done so well it does not take away from the photograph. Well done.

Cool blog as for me. I'd like to read more about that matter. The only thing it would also be great to see on this blog is a few pictures of any gadgets.
