Vintage Charm - Dusty Attic

Hi again everyone!  Today I have a sweet and shabby layout to share with you.  The photo is of my beautiful god-daughter modelling vintage clothes for a store in her town... I loved the whole vintage look of it.

I have used the ever so delicate Flower Buds as a feature on this layout.  They are truly beautiful and add just that wisp of detail that some layouts need.   I've added some Flutterbies #3 fluttering about the flower buds, as they do... and also used the Paddock Fence to help frame the scene.

Everything was painted white with Dusty in Colour Alabaster Acrylic Paint, it's perfect for these delicate chipboard cuts because you only really need one coat, which helps avoid damage.  

The buds and wing tips of the flutterbies were dabbed with a little glue and then sprinkled with fairy dust glitter.

I have used some sweet flowers from Green Tara to soften the chipboard clusters, the pale peach Heirloom flower was just the right shade to compliment the papers and the Swarovski crystal satin flowers added a little more understated bling!

The title uses Typewriter ABC Set, which was painted white and then swiped with peach chalk ink, and that's all it needed to create a shabby chic look.

Thanks for visiting today, until next time, take care of you!
