I Love Me Some Dusty Attic! :)

Here is another layout I've been working on that I'm having framed for a series of engagement photos that I'm giving as a gift to my nephew and his new bride.  I really loved this photo of them taken by this old rusted out pick-up truck.  I wanted the page to have a bunch of distressed aged elements so I use a bunch of my Dusty Attic chippies and gave them a weathered look.  For this layout I used The Fancy Flourish #2 and the Mini Cogs (which I gave the Verdigris finish found in my tutorials at the right side of the blog), the Baroque Corner and ATC Frames Set #1 (which I finished by painted with Gesso and then adding some dimensional silver Perfect Pearls to give a 3D look) as well as the Mini Hour Glass (which I finished by first painting white, adding some bronze and aqua paint and used a little glue in glass area and applied real sand).  Here are some close-up shots of my page.... 
I thought the zipper design would be a nice addition to this page as well.  I actually snipped this zipper out of an old pair of pants :) 


The papers and blooms I used for this page are all Prima (from the Almanac collection).  I thought they had that nice aged look to them and the soft pinkish tones matched the rusted colors in the old pick-up truck.  I used some little torn bits of book paper to add more of a tattered look to the layout a well.  (Look for old books at thrift stores, I picked mine up for pennies!  They come in really handy for scrapping!)

Before I sign out today I just want to remind you all that I'll be doing a Live Chat over at Swirlydoo's on Monday night (July 16th) at 7:00 EST ....hope you come and join me....and get your questions ready, I'm happy to answer if I can!  .....hopefully I won't be sitting there with the crickets! lol!

I know you won't be sitting there with the crickets cuz there is going to be a boatload of people that want to chat with you.

Your talent inspires me! I can rarely post my layouts cuz my family doesn't let me put their pictures on the internet:)

But I can scraplift you to my hearts content at home!!!

Oi Gabrielle!!!

Amei cada detalhe do seu LO, vejo essa renda e como se fosse um zíper abrindo e de fundo o relógio, tudo perfeito, detalhes de papel de livro envelhecido, borboletas, relógios, tudo tem um toque especial. Amo os suas criações, harmoniosas e criativas!!!

Beijos e tenha uma final de semana abençoado e iluminado.
