For Neve...

The end of the school term this week was a sad one for both my children. Two of their friends (including Oliver's bestest bestest friend ever) are moving away in the Easter holidays.
So they've had a farewell sleepover but I wanted to do something for the two children from my two before they leave next weekend.

I hose this photo from the girls sleepover, to do a little plaque for Neve. Considering they are all 7 & 8 they look so grown up!





I used a lot of Dusty Attic here, so you can pop over to the gallery here to see more details about the products used.

Look out for the little boys plaque coming soon...the photo of our two rascals is fantastic!

Dusty attic Goes Grungy

Today I would like to show you all how I turned a pretty lace Dusty Attic chipboard piece into a grungy embellishment for a boys layout...

'Carefree'

To create this I took one of the DA Lacey Corners and covered it in black Acrylic Paint.

 
When this is dry, sand the edges of the piece to distress and roughen it up.

 
Adhere metal cogs to the pieces and add dots of liquid pearls. Sprinkle dry embossing powder in silver over the wet dots.

 
When this had all dried, I added it to my page with some monochrome embellishments and hints of blues for a perfectly masculine layout!
