Dusty Attic - Treasures

Hi there my friends , a great big warm welcome to my blog
my turn today over at the
  Dusty Attic 
We are in Spring here in Australia and today I have a nature layout to showcase .
Gardening, blooms and nature are some of my favourite things in life.

This month I have used a Photograph of some seaside daisies 
poking their happy little faces through the rustic cast iron fence .

Dusty Attic materials used 
French flourish border/ DA0275
Bird cage  /DA0678
Hanging Mason Jars/ DA1364
Leafy Stem #5 /DA1144
Decorative frame #1  /DA0207
Dusty in color Mountain Meadow /DA0916
Dusty in color Oceania /DA0912 

The colors are mixed together to achieve this hue.
I began with Mountain Meadow
 and gradually added tiny amounts of Oceania until I was happy with the tone .

then painted and layered over and under the right side of photo .

loving these little mason jars... adorable x

Decorative frame #1  /DA0207
I placed this frame upside down and added a couple
 of altered metal embellishments to the centre of the circle  .

and all the other inspiring creations at Dusty Attic 
bye for now 
big hugz to you
