Webster's Pages & Dusty Attic

Each month Webster's Pages features a new Guest Designer and the Design Team members are asked to create a project inspired by one of the the Guest Design Team member's projects.  This month our Guest is Nadia Cannizzo, her work is really beautiful and she has a uniuqe and lovely style.  I noticed that she often journals by hand directly onto her layout backgrounds and also likes to use some soft inking on her layouts, so that is what I picked up from her work when making the above page.  Here are a few close-up shots....

I used a variety of papers and embellishments from the Webster's Yacht Club collection to make up this page along with a few Dusty Attic pieces, along with some fun WP rubber stamps, love these they give such a nice crisp image (the word 'Beauty' and the floral branch in the top left corner).  Here is a basic list of the products used on this layout:

~Websters Pages Yacht Club papers
~Websters Princess Petals (Blue & Yellow lollipop blooms)
~Websters Sparklers (pearly gems)
~Websters Silhouettes (Cameo)
~Websters Designer Threads (Embroidery pieces ...behind cameo)
~Websters Trim (Holiday collection)
~Websters Alpha Stickers (from Natures Storybook Collection)
~Butterflies (I scanned the butterfly on the paper called 'Grace' from the Life's Portrait collection and made up a contact sheet of this butterfly in different sizes and printed it off on some white glossy cardstock)
~Websters Unity Stamps (unmounted rubber stamps....Beauty
~Dusty Attic ~ Paris Post Mark #DA0320 & Shells DA0048
~other (fish netting from Michaels)

To see Nadia's projects as Guest Designer for this month as well as the other layoutst made by the Websters Design Team that were inspired by Nadia's work please check out this link ~~> May Guest Designer

Thanks so much for all your kind comments, I read them all!!  Hopefully I've answered some of your product questions with this post....I know a few of you have asked about the little butterflies I use on my layouts.  One of my favourites is the dotted yellow one I scanned from one of the Webster's collections...I've listed the details in my product list above.  Please feel free to ask me any questions if I've forgotten to list something :)

Hey Gabrielle, again I love your work. I was wondering what it is that you used at the bottom of your page that looks like a net? It looks great.
