Believe ~ Dusty Attic

This layout is made after Dusty Attic's August sketch. I have used one of the new title chippies (loooove these!) from Word Pack #4 (DA1077) and a Decorative Frame #2 (DA0208). I have painted both pieces with three shades of green Dusty in Color: Pesto, Crushed Olive and Forrest. I have then given the chippies a coat of Clear Gloss Varnish.
I have also used a Mini Hinge (DA1006). This piece I just painted white and then with Clear Gloss Varnish.
A couple of close ups:

I have used Dusty in Blooms, Vintage Rose (DA0803) together with flowers from Petaloo. I just love the purple with the fresh green!
And here is the sketch for August!

Snowday ~ Donna Salazar

Hi everybody! The layout I have to share today is a winter layout, even though we are in the middle of summer here in Sweden. It's been so hot lately, the only way I could think of to cool down, was to scrap about winter!
This is my last work for Donna Salazar, it is time for me to move on. I have had an amazing time on this team and it was a dream come true when I was asked to join! Donna's products are totally awesome to work with!
Back to my layout. I have worked with different papers from GCD Studios and Donna's, all in blue shades. I cut them using a diecut paper as a template, distressed the edges and then painted the edges with white gesso. I didn't do any more background work, all the paint and mist you see was added later in the process.

Behind the photo I have used Spellbinders and Donna's Shadow Flowers dies (I cut four pieces of one of the dies, and glued them on the back of the photo, to create a frame).
I have also used Spellbinders and Donna's Wonderful Wings dies to make the beautiful butterflies. I have sprinkled some Twinkle dust glitter, Sugar Shimmer, on these beauties.
The alpha is from GCD Studios and Donna's Family Jeans collection.
After adding flowers, vines and the butterflies, I painted everything lightly with some white gesso. I then dripped some Smoochspritz, color Evergreen, here and there. The purple flower was added last, so no paint or mist on that one.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart for all the sweet comments you have given me here and on Donna's facebook page.

Happy Days ~ Dusty Attic

Hi everybody! Today I have a layout to share, using a couple of chippies from the latest Dusty Attic release - another fabulous release!!
The photos on this page are from the lake at our summer house, one of my favorite places in this world, and we always have a great time when we go there. The Hashtag saying "Happy days" (DA1076) was just perfect for these photos! I have simply inked the chippie with red/brown ink.

Under the flowers and vines, I have used a piece of Lavender (DA1001) and Reeds (DA1002), painted white. I have tied a piece of string in the bottom, keeping the pieces together. On top, in the bottom, I have put an Elegant Swirl #2 (DA1098), inked with red/brown ink and then misted with gold mist.

I have also used a little Page Pebble #6 "Just another day in paradise" (DA1111), misted with gold glimmer mist. Love these pebbles, you can use them just about everywhere!

Thank you for stopping by today!
