Happy Memories {Dusty Attic and Websters Pages}

 
I found this old photo of our dear Mocha (she passed a few years ago), she was a super sweet dog, fiercely protective but did not have a lot of tolerance for children's shinanigans (did I actually use that word? lol!) ....If there were too many kiddies running around like at this summer resort, she would quickly tuck herself under your legs to hide (not the best of things when wearing a skirt!!)  Well, I tried to come up with a good title for this one but my husband finally came up with 'Leg Warmers' which I thought was a good fit :)

 
To make this page I used some papers from Websters Pages 'Postcards from Paris II' and 'A Christmas Story' collection.  I embellished with some new goodies from Dusty Attic designs.  Above you can see the Cyclone Wire fence chippies (I like to cut them up in little bits to use on my pages).
 
 
Another new chipboard design that Dusty Attic just put out is the 'Chevrons' in a variety of sizes.  For mine I first gave them a coat of Gesso, then added a coat of 'Oceania' Dusty in Color Paint and used a white Gel Pen (Signo Unibal) to put some dots on the design.  I finished it by adding a nice thick coat of Dusty Attic Gloss medium.

 
Here is another view of the chippies and floral embellishments.  I first gave the base of the page my own unique background design by starting with a basic soft brocade paper.  I then added some inking on the borders with some Tim Holtz Broken China Distress Ink applied with a make-up sponge.  I used a Crafters Workshop 6x6 Circle Grid Stencil/Mask and black ink applied with sponge in corners and edges fading in as I go...I dabbed a little of the Broken China with the black ink.  I used a make-up sponge to apply the Broken China ink around the area of my photo/embellishments as well.

 
I also used another couple of stencils on this page with texture paste.  The 6x6 Crafters Workshop 'Ledger' stencil and the Tim Holtz "Measured" stencil (under the photo area).  One of my favourite chippies from Dusty Attic has always been the Vintage Hinges, well now I'm so excited because they have come out with the 'Mini Hinges' as well!  I love them!  Although I used them for a layout here, I can totally see me using them in cards, ATC's and OTP's (of the page projects!).  I dabbed on some copper 3D T-shirt paint and some more of the 'Oceania' Dusty in Color paint to get the above effect.
 
 
I hope you enjoyed my project today.  If you are looking for Dusty Attic products you can check out their website HERE, you can find retailers for Dusty Attic in  North America listed in my right side panel of my blog (I believe Janene from The Scrapbook Diaries has the mini hinges in right now :).  And you can find Websters Pages collections HERE.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  xo
