A Little Dirt Never Hurt

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog. So I am making a few layouts for a friend for her to give as Xmas gifts…framed…to some family members. Ok so I made this one yesterday and then stole it for ME hehe!!!!!! I fell in love with it and could not resist putting a photo of my grandson on it. I can make a similar one for her now. So I decided as I was making it to use it for a challenge at Girly Grunge this month. I used my Zutter for distressing, and the large flower and butterflies are made with DS Antiquities Vintage Gears paper.

 In the top corner you can see the cute little title sticker and all the distressing and sewing. I have used some corrugated board with gesso and glimmer mists. The board, flower and butterflies are all misted with Tattered Angels Glimmer mists.

I did a bit of lacing which is an inspiration from Natasha at Girly Grunge.

 I added a Dusty Attic border onto the photo with is altered with TA Glimmer Mist and then some rock candy on it.

 I also used some DA leaves which have been painted white first then I added some stamping, inking and more rock candy crackle paint to it. I made the large flower using the same two mists.

This is actually my 2nd layout for this challenge. I will reveal the other one in a week or so. I have so many projects completed, but they have to reveal on design teams first and then I get to show them here J My Scrap That! Dec Kit should be here in a few days and I have a HUGE challenge planned for the Holidays. Yepp..13 prizes up for grabs! ANYONE can enter these challenges at Scrap That! You do not have to be a subscriber…it is our little way of saying thank you to everyone that has supported us over the year.

 Ok well that is it for today. Thanks again for stopping by and I hope that you have a fantastic week.  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
