Simply Renee & Dusty Attic Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Simply Renee and Dusty Attic Blog Hop!  We have much inspiration to share with you today!  Oh and of course... some fabulous prizes!

Simply Renee manufactures quality products that help you customize your organizational needs.  You may be familiar with their Clip it Up products.  You can view Simply Renee’s complete product line on their website.  They are having an amazing sale right now!  

For this blog hop, Simply Renee has teamed up with The Dusty Attic, an Australian owned and operated laser cutting business that designs and manufactures craft items and embellishments.  You can view some of these wonderful products as well as beautiful projects by fellow crafters on the Dusty Attic Ning site.  As you hop along with us today, you will see inspirational projects made by some of the talented Dusty Girls!  Here is the project I created for you using Dusty Attic chipboard embellishments.
I wanted to create a page with an 'overload' of Dusty Attic chippies, (I really think you can never have enough 'dusty' on a page! lol!)....I used one of the new chippies 'Birdcage #5', and the gorgeous NEW Corner Flourish #3 as well as the 'Birds on a Branch #2'
For the 'Birds on the Branch' chippie I painted the piece with Gesso, then just used chalk inks in green, brown and blue to tint the piece in the appropriate places, I added a little detailing with a brown felt tip pen. 



The papers I used here are a combination of K&Company & Prima, the fabric ribbon is Recollections.

What prizes are we giving away today?
Simply Renee is giving away a Clip it Up Base Unit, an Upper Tier and Zip Bags!
(Product Not Included)

The Dusty Attic is also giving away a prize pack filled with gorgeous chipboard elements and a few surprise goodies!  

So what do you need to do for a chance to win?

A winner will be chosen on March 22, 2012 and will be announced on both the Simply Renee and Dusty Attic blogs.

Gather the tools and materials you'll need before you begin and make sure they're clean and ready to use. Depending on your project, you'll likely need a protractor for calculating angles.
