Lion Heart!

Hi there everyone,  today I'm here to share my Dusty Attic February 'Love' ATC.
I wanted to do a different take on the 'Romance and Love' theme and as I watched the Wizard of Oz last week with my children I kept thinking of the Tin Man and the Lion....Yep! I muddled the two up a little and came up with my ATC.


Dusty Attic Products:

Coat of arms add on #2
Fancy Labels
Other Products ~ Tim Holtz Crackle paint, Distress inks and Distress markers, Pink Paislee Paper and Prima trinket.
This Atc is a matching partner to my January ATC here on the blog in a previous post.
Thanks for coming by the stay a while and I hope you enjoy some other posts. Till Next time, G!

Once upon a Time.........

Hi there, I hear that for some February is considered the month of DH needs a total reminder about this!
Over at Dusty Attic the Design Team are celebrating with the theme of  'love'  for the month.
I decided to take a different approach to the theme and I thought of the romance that adults and children alike find in fairytale books.......hence my layout,

'With a Kiss'

 Dusty Attic Products:

Dusty In Bloom Bridal Veil
Dusty In Colour :  Hot Chocolate, Oceania.
Vintage Clock 1
Fancy Labels
Coat of arms add on #2
French Flourish 2pk
Weathered Wood Chipboard Tutorial
Products required:
Dusty In Colour :  Hot Chocolate, Oceania.
Dusty Attic chipboard ~ I have used a Fancy Label
Dark Chocolate ink
Tim Holtz crackle paint~picket fence.

Step1: Ink label, cut out centre frame on scrored lines and
coat centre piece with crackle paint.

 Step 2:  Roughly paint frame with Hot Chocolate and Oceania paint and
add a very light amount to centre frame.
Step 3: Add a light coat of crackle paint sparsely over the top
to base. Comine 2 pieces together.
I have used Prima alphabets for title and dabbed a hint of all 3 paints
on top for weathered look also.
Thanks for stopping by, and remember to Kiss your DH onValentines day....
he might just turn into a romantic Prince????
