Hullo my scrappy friends!
Today I'm sharing my DUSTY ATTIC JUNE CHALLENGE page. 
Based on this lovely Mood board.

I decided to go with those colours. REALLY interesting & ones I wouldn't normally use together!
I've used both the 'waste' and some of the OLD WOODEN FENCE posts
I added some DUSTY ATTIC PAINT to my posts, then roughly heat embossed.
Lastly, I added 3 different nail polishes. Simply can't help myself *winks*!!!
The MINI SEAGULLS and chevron from the ARROWS #1 pack have been coated in nail polish as well :)
 I had a couple of HINGES - not matching - left over, so added them to each side of the photo:
And behind my photo layers I've roughly penciled, then stitched some circles.
The doily in that deep red colour was created from a stencil, using molding paste mixed with
Then fussy cut out.
Down the bottom I placed a cluster to 'balance' my page.
Repeating elements on your page helps create cohesion - hence the muslin!
I really LOOOVE this table that my hubby has made.
It's sturdy and there's a sense of continuity of creating something new out of something that has washed up on the beach near our house!
No better place to have a cuppa in the whole wide world, for me:)
Anyways....hoping you get a chance to join in with our CHALLENGE this month!
Happy Scrapping ~ Lizzy

  3. Oh wow - I love this A LOT! Very creative use of both the positive and negative of the board diecut! The patina of the boards - how awesome! The colours are spectacular - the pink does pop on the page... and the detail - ooooh Lizzy - right down to the little gems, and the pink fibre... stunning!

  4. Ah the serenity! I could sit there too! Wonderful use of the chipboard that you have used.. No such thing as waste in scrapping! Love the birds too, very beachy feel... Enjoy the rest of your weekend.. They go so fast!

  5. There's something about seagulls which evoke a smell of the sea and relaxing with a good book and a cuppa. Clever work with the fence and the negative space. Oh and the lovely flair is a perfect finishing touch :)

  6. Really dig that raspberry color you used and that that waste along with the actual fence...such a nice balanced page too! Love it a whole lot!

  7. This is such an appealing page. Love those seagulls , you have created a page that transports me there , having a cuppa on that gorgeous table, very special indeed that Tom made it from wood washed up by the sea. Really love the raspberry and green colours together as well.A super , fabulous page

  8. Wow! This is stunning. I love the coloured gauze and those chippies...so delicate. So wish somebody in SA would stock it. Hope you are having a wonderful weekend xx

  9. Wow wow wowwwwwwwwwww! This is gorgeous! LOVING the colors, the seagulls, the photo, the textures .. just LOVE IT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  10. You're right: it's an interesting colour combo which makes for an absolutely, beautifully, arresting page. I love it.

  11. Those colors look GORGEOUS together and I especially love the random embossing powder. I wish I was crafty enough to make furniture pieces, but my talents don't exist outside the craft room.

  12. So gorgeous. Love how the birds are flying across background. Hugz

  13. Love your new happy place.:)
    This is really pretty! LOVE the little details.Just curious...the nail polishes you buy go on your projects and not your nails, eh?

  14. so great LO Lizzy! love this graphic design and yummy photo! and really adore how you made a fence - so awesome! )))

  15. Looooveeee this!! The combination of the colours, the photo and the addition of the seagulls is so serene and beautiful!! Just want to sit there and have a cuppa!! Great design and the 'waste' chippy is reminiscent of an old boardwalk .. brilliant!!! xx
