It's all about the chipboard!

Hello lovelies!! 

We returned from a beautiful holiday yesterday, which was replete with lots of sand, surf and sea.... plenty of relaxation.... and tonnes of photos!!  I haven't even downloaded the camera yet, much less edited them for posting, so I guess I'll have to do that later in the week, once the back-to-school flurry of activity settles down!!

For now, I just wanted to quickly share with you my very first official Dusty Attic DT layout!  These pieces are from the new release, which is just completely gorgeous.  They are so new in fact, that we don't even have the names and codes for them yet!  I layered a few different components for the door piece and then set about weathering it with paint, glimmermist and ink.  For details, check out my tutorial over at Dusty Attic and keep your eye on the DA shop for the new release for 2012.

I had a lot of fun with this page, exploring a couple of new techniques and looks... just trying to keep things interesting...  :)  I actually fussy cut around the floral detail in the bottom left of the Kaiser pp and slotted the chippy door and the canvas tag/photo down inside it, further embellishing over the top also.  I tend to 'blur' the boundaries of large elements on a page in order to make them a little less imposing.


For now, I have to try to snap out of holiday mode and get my mind into back-to-school mode.... no mean feat!!  :))  Good luck to all my Queensland buddies who are in the same situation!

I'll be back later in the week with more stuff...  :)

Cheers for now,
