Relax - Helena Johansson

Hi everybody! Today I'm sharing a soft pastel page with you. I found a photo of my dad and his little brother from when they were young. I guess the photo is about 60 years old or so. They look so sweet and adorable, don't you think?


In the background I have used the Fan Stencil (DA1320), one of my favs! Of course with Dusty Attic texture paste. I have also misted lightly with pink mist here and there.

I then pulled out some of the newer Dusty Attic chippies, and immediately decided to use some of the pretty pendants, DA1359 and DA1367. They look cute on any project! I also chose the Party Lights (DA1361), they look like pearl strings and suited my page well. I have painted all chippies white, to really get a soft look.

After putting on some flowers, I finished my page with Leaves #2 (DA1342) and the title "Relax" from Word Pack # 10 (DA1266).

Some close-ups:




Thanks for stopping by today!

xoxo

Hello everyone and welcome to my first ever Dusty Attic blogpost! 

My name is Valia Katzaki and I am a shabby scrapper from sunny Greece. I love chipboard and flowers, is there any better scrappy combination? Dusty Attic has the most amazing designs and I couldnt be more thankful to Jennifer Hedger and Jen Burns for having me on the team! 
This is a dream come true for me!

Let me say that opening my DT package was a thrilling experience. All these beautiful products, the chipboard, the flowers, the acrylics and the stencils inspired me to scrap in a most romantic way. 
Here is our January moodboard 
To enter just add your link to the top right hand side of the blog - you could be the lucky winner of a $100 Dusty Attic Gift voucher 


And this is my layout

I treated the backgroung with a script DA stencil and Shimmerz Texturez. 

The word "Special" was first primed with gesso and then painted with Twinkling H2Os. I cut the corners from the elegant chain and I tucked them in my clusters. To achieve a different shade of the same color, I used the same paint but I didnt gesso the piece first. I treated the Scrolls the same way. 


I painted the Ivy corners with Finnabair Mica Powder mixed with gloss medium. I generously dabbed the leaves with paint to get extra texture. When the leaves were dry, I dilluted Dusty in Color Raisin with lots of water and I washed the leaves in oder to highlight the raised areas. It gave the leaves a kind of succulent look. 



REMEMBER  
all chipboard can be purchased direct from the Dusty Attic website, and there is free shipping when you order over $75.00 worth world wide.

The Dusty Attic chipboard pieces were so amazing that I couldnt help myself so I made two cards as well. For the first card I used a piece of the Tickets set and the ATC Frame #4

For the second card, I used the inside leftover of the ATC frame as a frame for my sentiment. Even the leftovers are too great not to use!
