Peace **TCR – Dusty Attic** and BIG NEWS!

I have news!!!!!!! I am so thrilled to be asked by DustyAttic to be their Guest Designer for the month of January! Internet scream!!!! LOL! Thank you everyone at Dusty Attic for being so awesome to me, you inspire me and I hope that I can also inspire in my journey with you. And thank you to all of you for so much inspiration along the way! You can see the announcement here! Ok so on with my layout…it was created using this weeks palette at The Color Room…..it is so pretty and I had so much fun with my last major inking project that I am doing it again. The photo is my daughter and grandson over the holidays, and I was inspired by Belinda at Dusty Attic and used naked chippys! First time for me..hehe!


I started with a piece of Tim Holtz Kraft Resist paper and some corrugated board. From there I just used lots of gesso, inks, stains and mists to create this background. I really like it! I then added in some PionDesign papers behind the photo and a couple of their cute little tags.

In this close up you can see the back ground good with the naked chippys. I tucked in some burlap and lots of Prima flowers.

I added a lil Prima bird house in the cluster on the bottom.

 Look at all the yummy layers. I really like the colors on this I may have to frame it! If I know my daughter though…she will want it! awww and I will give it to her of course!

 Ok well that is it for today, I will be back soon with more creations!  Have a fantastic weekend!  Feel free to leave me some scrappy love comments, I love reading them ...take care and happy scrapping J
