Sunshine and Fresh Air

Today was a perfect Winter's day and a good chance to open up all the windows and let fresh air flow through the house, get lots of washing dry, attend to some long overdue housework and then finish up with cleaning my car and doing the shopping.  That did not leave any creating time today  but I did attend the Embellish It Crop yesterday and finished the Dusty Attic June Challenge and two cards for the day. 

This is my take on the Dusty Attic June Challenge
 Using Kaiser Patterned papers and Dusty Attic frame, decorative corners and mirrored dressing table. The outer frame was painted with Twinkling H20s as was the first coat of the inner frame which was then coated in crackle paint and a top coat of white acrylic. 
 The dressing table was whitewashed with white acrylic and then painted with Tim Holtz Distress crackle. Distress ink was applied around the edges and the handles painted with Twinkling H20s.  The decorative corners were inked with lavender ink and then coated clear embossing powder and heated. 
 The fairies and butterfly  were cut from the Kaiser Paper.
Basic Grey lettering was painted with Twinkling H20s.  Bling trim was added to the mirror.
The photos, dressing table and papers have been sitting in my 'To Do' pile for a few months so this Dusty Attic Sketch was an ideal way to use them. 
That's all for today.  Your visit to my blog is much appreciated.

Have a great week.

Until next time.....
