Dusty Attic "Perfection" Layout using the Dusty Attic Inspiration Board

 Hello Dusty Attic Lovers!! Oh,  the summer has been brutal this last month here in Florida with temperatures reaching almost 100 all month long...I only dream of the cool crisp breezes of Autumn. I picked out some Fall inspired colors from my Dusty In Colour paint collections, and ran with it!! I collected papers, trim, buttons and even created a hair band for my sweet grand daughter to match the layout. Then I picked out the chip board. Leafy Stems, a scroll and the "Perfect" title... I can almost smell pumpkin pie spice in the air!!! I chose 3 colors from the inspiration board,  the green from the photo and the word "nature" and "Imperial" for the feeling.

I painted the Perfection title with Dusty In Color Sunshine, and just dabbed on a bit of Dusty In colour Sunburnt Orange.

I painted the scroll with Dusty In Color Pesto and dabbed on a bit of Sunshine while it was still wet, so that it blended well.  I dabbed some Sunshine around the layout touching the edges of the curled paper and card board,

I love that sometimes to get a wispy look, you can wet your Dusty Attic Chipboard and pull apart the layers creating more pieces. I cut the Leafy Stems apart, then peeled away the layers. I painted them in Pesto, dabbing on some Forrest, then painting the berries in Raisin. I found these awesome little pearls called Mini Prills. They are kind of like micro beads but are pearl like accents in different sizes.  I adhered them to the middle of the berries. I also adhered some to the middles of my hand made flowers.

This layout is very dimensional. Lots of layers created with bits of corrugated cardboard.

Here is a close up of the flowers I created. I made the frilly middles to lighten up the design.

This is a close up of the banner. The little flowers were punched out from patterned paper, layered then topped with  the Mini
Prills. They were then adhered to the hand cut banners and strung on jute, and to finish it off, I used some May Arts vine trim over the top edge.
