Hello and a warm welcome to everyone.
You are here at my blog where I am showcasing
 some Dusty Attic chipboard pieces,
 I felt like having a play, just because !!! 
Today I am sharing a textured layout with you 
The background was created with a mask.
My process 
Lay the mask on your paper. spray with Ink, remove mask, then dry with heat gun.
  Return the mask back over the inked image and add texture paste,  
This technique is so simple and such fun to play with .


This LO I created just for fun, I adore the photo taken by my daughter Tara
director of Simply Photographic

Process for my chipboard ... 
step 1 . paint with DA Cranberry   
step 2. coat with some Distress ink /Mahogany .
step 3. Paint with some DA crackle paint .
step 4. dab very lightly with white chalk ink .
' Make sure to dry thoroughly between each layer. '

A Textured gift Tag for Christmas - Maja Design

Hello to my scrappy sistas' and lovers of  Maja Design Collections.
Today I have a Christmas tag to show you 
created with the NEW Collection "A Gift for You".
I always love to include a tag with my Xmas gifts 
and I make them personal by writing on the back of the tag.  
We have very hot weather for Christmas here in Australia
and right now we are in the middle of our Summer .

A gift for you ..

 I adore the striking rich red and white with the grey BG .
I created lots of layers with these glorious papers. 
Adding a splash of green on the rosebuds.
I wanted to create a feel of a white Christmas with this Tag .

 A side shot showing the many layers of the co-ordinating 
papers, matching perfectly .

I added a small amount of fibre paste with a stencil creating the illusion of Snow .

A Gift for you ...Given from the heart and Sent with Love.
