Hot off the Runway **TCR, Dusty Attic**

TGIF!!! Its reveal day at The Color Room..and sadly this is my last reveal as an RDA. OMG I had so much fun there..the design team is amazing, so encouraging and helpful. Love them ..I hope they ask me back some time. For my layout this week I also used this months sketch from Dusty Attic, lots of distressing, inking, misting and the two larger fushia flowers are hand made from hand dyed silk. The photo is my great niece this summer…such a little sweetie pie.



I used a large DA frame piece under the flower cluster. It is first painted white, then I used some glimmer mists and glimmer glaze on it. After that was dry I used some Tim Holtz Rock Candy crackle paint on it for a finish. You can see one of my hand made flowers here.

One of the bottom layers of paper is a resist paper. I used lots of distress inks and mists to get the right colors for this week. I added in a paper doily and a hand made doily under the photo.

 Here is the large cluster of flowers and goodies. I also punched out the cute little butterflies and tucked them in a few places. A satin bow and a Prima shabby chic bird to finish this all off.

Ok well that is it for today. I got my December kit from Scrap That! soooo excited I can work on that this weekend  Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic weekend.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
