Dusty Attic March 2016 Mood Board Challenge.

Hello Dusty Attic Lovers. I  bring to you, this sweet layout inspired by our Mood Board this month. The very touch of pink in the March Moodboard, swimming in a sea of neutral colors, simply caught my eye. I had to make the pink pop!! I chose a paper collection with very little color, but gorgeous pattern. Epiphany by Prima Marketing. It was the perfect backdrop to showcase the gorgeous Dusty Attic chipboard and blooms.

I die cut the spiral roses using paper from the 6x6 Epiphany paper pad and sprayed them with Lindy's Stamp Gang Salt Water Taffy Starburst. I also sprayed the Dusty Attic blooms with the same color. I soaked the Spring Blooms #4 in some water, peeled the layers back a bit to give it dimension, wrinkled them up a bit and dried them. I gave them a spritz of Lindy's Stamp Gang South Shore Sand spray, flecked a bit of watered down white gesso onto it,  and topped the middles with some pearls.

I used the single blooms in the Spring Bloom set and did the same technique with them.

I cut the word cherish between the R and the I to adhere it beside the frame.

The Vintage Frame #2 is simply divine. I primed it with gesso, then added a thick coating of Viva Crackle paint. Once it was dried, I sprayed it with Lindy's South Shore Sand Flat Fabio spray. The color settled in the cracks beautifully.

Here is a closeup of the Elegant Frame where you can see more detail in the crackle technique.

I love how the crackle medium looks on the French Flourish Border chipboard. Like a fine weathered piece of wrought iron.
