GCD Antiquities by Donna Salazar

This month at Red Earth Scrapping I'm focusing on these stunning GCD Antiquities by Donna Salazar Papers, they would have to be favourites of mine for sure!!  I'm a bit of a fan of hers and these papers... just divine!!


This is my gorgeous sister, it's rare she lets me take a photo, so was rapt when I got such a beautiful one of her.
I have used GCD Antiquities by Donna Salazar {Time for Tea}, White and Mauve Cardstock, Paper Doily, Crochet Trim & Doilies, Crochet Flower, Green Tara Flowers and Mini Rosebuds, Prima Innocence Flowers, Zva Pearl Swirl & Pearl Dots, American Crafts Thickers {Emerald Flocked}, Green Tara Silver Sprays, Dusty Attic Skeleton Clock Face and Vintage NamePlate, Green Tara Lace.

The chipboard was painted with white acrylic paint, dabbed with Tim Holtz Distress Stains {Dusty Concordeand Spun Sugar} and then dabbed with more white paint.

Rough Lot

This is my grandfather with some of his workmates when he was working in Port Augusta.  He had written 'Rough Lot' on the back of the photo, so I've titled the LO the same.

I have used: GCD Antiquities by Donna Salazar {Tales of Travel}, Brown and Yellow Cardstock, Tim Holtz Tissue Tape, Hessian, American Crafts Thickers {Emerald Flocked}, Ribbon and Jute Trim, Vintage Buttons, Craft Queen Crochet Mirror Flower, Bo Bunny Brads {Timepiece}, Dusty Attic Chipboard {Leafy Stems, Fancy Letterbox, Pocket Watch}, Collections Name Holder.

The chippies here have been dabbed with warm white paint, then dabbed with Tim Holtz Distress Stains {Dusty Concorde, Wild Honey and Vintage Photo}, then dabbed again with more paint to blend the colours.

and finally:

She was the Music

This is my grandmother, my grandfather adored her, totally... it was plain as day how much he loved her.  His last words as he left us were "I am going to see Jeannie now, she's waiting for me", so beautiful.
I have used: GCD Antiquities by Donna Salazar {Let's Ride}, Cardstock, Fabric offcut, Prima Spray, BoBunny Gabrielle Trinket, Kaiser Bling Flourish, Kaiser and Green Tara Flowers, Green Tara Leaves, Prima Pebble {Script}, Heidi Grace Pins, Vintage Buttons, Craft Queen  Crochet Mirror Flower, Tim Holtz Tissue Tape and Salvage Stickers, Bella Journal Card, Kay's Kreative Transparent Butterfly, Dusty Attic Ornate Fence #1

For the chippy, I have first stained with with Tim Holtz Distress Stains {Wild Honey, Weathered Wood, Vintage Photo}, dabbed with with white paint, sprayed it with Chalkboard Glimmer Mist {Charcoal} and then dabbed with more white paint! After this was dry I added spots of Tim Holtz Distress Crackle {Clear Rock Candy} which brings through more intense colours in the parts that are coated.

Take care of you.
