The base page of this layout is by Pink Paislee and has been in my stash for quite a while; I loved how well it went with the colour palette. I misted a white fabric doily with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Raven and used it as the start of my layering on the right side of the page. I added a paper doily that I inked with Distress Ink in Antique Linen to achieve the beige colour of the palette. I then triple-matted the photo using three different patterened papers - the bottom mat has the light aqua colour in the pattern, followed by a mat that brings in the gold colour and the final mat that adds some more black. I edge-distressed and inked all the papers with Distress Ink in Black Soot.
For the embellishments at the top of the photo, I fussy cut some "feathers" from a second sheet I had of the Pink Paislee paper and added some real feathers and a chipboard shape and rhinestones. The title on the photo is a Dusty Attic Chipboard word that I covered with Ranger Enamel Accents - it is the first time I have used the enamel - and I love the glossy finish!
I used some of the gold patterned paper and a smaller inked doily in a peek-a-boo at the top right of the layout and the scrunched lower left corner of the layout. I cut an envelope from the black patterned paper to use for my journalling and layered it on top of some chipboard flourishes and another feather. I added a small piece of black twine to the envelope to close it.
That's it for today! Thanks so much for visiting my blog!
