Beach Time AND The Good Life - Belinda Spencer

Hello Dusty Attic fans!

Belinda here today to share with you two layouts I have created using fabulous Dusty Attic products. Two BOY layouts!! Boy layouts can sometimes be hard to create but The Dusty Attic makes it super easy with so many designs perfect for masculine layouts.

'Beach Time'

This layout is chockers full of beautiful beach inspired chipboard pieces. I just love all of those sea grass and coral pieces! I have added my chipboard in layers on this layout starting with the raw, unaltered seaweed from the Seaweed # 4 set.

I created my watercolour look background using my favourite ever Dusty In Colour paint; CAPRI! Such a stunning colour. I have diluted it here and added to my background with a soft wet paintbrush. I flicked some droplets over the background too. 
I used the Glass Stains Stencil with some white gesso to create the look of bubbles on my layout. This is such a cool stencil!
To keep things co-ordinated I used the leftover Capri paint to colour the Seaweed # 2 pieces as well as the Geo Tag and Word Arrow.

I used a UNI Posca Pen in white to alter the Mini Caption, Page Pebbles and Mini Tag.

Here's what I used:

'The Good Life'

For this layout I co-ordinated my chipboard with the photo of my son feeding our deer on our farm. That chipboard Deer Head could not be more perfect for the photo and for the patterned paper I had in my stash. I covered the deer head in patterned paper to resemble the deer head image on the background paper. I sanded the edges of the deer head and antlers once it was covered to rough it up a bit and create a rustic look. It works well with the 'rustic' place I call home.

Here's a closer look.

I used the gorgeous Sunshine Dusty In Colour paint on my background. I used a Prima silicone brush to swipe it over the background. Once the paint was dry I used a latex make-up wedge to apply Storm Cloud Dusty In Colour over the Chicken Wire Stencil.

I chopped up the Chevron Panel into strips and painted the pieces with the same paints. I applied a couple of coats of white gesso to the Mini Tabs. Once dry I painted carefully over the top with the Dusty In Colour paints making sure that the words still appeared white.

I decorated the Deer Head with a small Geo Tag, Hashtag and the title that I had painted white using a Uni Posca Pen.

Here's what I used:

I hope you are feeling inspired to create some boy layouts with your own Dusty Attic stash. Make sure you share them in the Dusty FANattics Facebook Group HERE so we can leave some love.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.

Friends - Valerie Ouellet

Hi Dusty Attic Fans!
Today, I would like to share a layout that I love using Dusty Attic chipboard. I had fun with Dusty Attic stencils, Medium 3D Gel and Lindy's spray ink to create the background.


Then, I added some textures with small pearls and sequins.

I used an amazing ribbon to attach the "Dusty Attic Industrial Globes" chipboard. I altered the lights with the same Lindy's spray ink that I used for my background.

I added the title "Mini words 1" that I embossed with Lindy's black embossing powder and I added a Cuts2luv flair.

These are treasured memories - Nicole Doiron

Guess who this is as a little girl 
That's right .... It's me ! 

I absolutely love the Boho Feathers. To colour them, I used a combination of the same pink and purple shade Velvet Pastes as on the background and dabbed a bit of Dusty in Colour Moutain Meadow.

I used Mountain Meadow to also cover the title and the String Frames.

I sprayed some adhesive on my page and then sprinkled a bit of the Dress My Craft Angel Mix Sequins. I adore adding sequins to my work... and d these mixes are full of different tiny shapes and colours. They add just the right amount of shine and I find they look perfect against the sepia base.

If you like my work and would like to see more, visit me HERE.

Here is the list of all Dusty Attic products used:

Thank you for joining me today!
I will be back a bit later this month with my take on the beautiful March mood board!
