A Little Dusty in Hyden

The Dusty Girls... well some of us!


I love this LO... the way Wave Rock in the background matches the DSD Antiquities paper so perfectly, the new Dusty Attic Cherry Blossom chippy blends perfectly with the printed, the flowers were just right... everything just happened and flowed like it was all meant to be!  Don't you love that new alpha font from Dusty Attic as well, just the right size!

The chippy here was painted white, dabbed with some stains and blended with more white paint, then smooched for a subtle colour on the cherry blossoms, and then some definition drawn in with sepia ink.
The handmade flower was cut using a Spellbinders Die, Grand Peony by Donna Salazar - these dies make flower making far too easy!  Mine still don't have that 'perfect' look, but I guess that's just me...
And I have popped on some Green Tara cherry blossoms, to match with the cherry blossom chippy!
