Dusty Attic sketch challenge for the month of May. By Michelle Grant.

The paper I used is a old paper line..when you hear the name you will laugh...and then it will be out! It will be known how far back my paper stash goes.....For those that have seen it all ready...RUSTY PICKLE..can you belive it. But it was perfect for the photo's. What is more, I had exactly enough paper with out looking to the card stock for help....Great way of making more room for the new paper that comes in.......This weekend I shall be going down to visit Scrapdelight with their weekend  celebration,  for being so many years open. Take a visit www.scrapdelight.nl
Below you will see my first effort on these wonderful roses

Below: Dusty Attic dragonflies DA0518 painted with glimmer glam-Golden Goddess and Be Positive. I once again made a paper ruffle around the circle. Disstressed, then stitched in place with gold thread.

Above: The green leaves are made with the new mini shapers and movers from Tim Holtz. Leaves and twigs. Cut from a brown box. Top layer spritzed with water then with a sharp vegie knife the top layer carefuly taken off. Glimmer glam- Dirty Martini (green) used. Dry with the heat gun...it will bubble. This gives a fantastic grunge effect. I have become hooked on it. The top layer I took off, is used as the second leaf. This gives a contrast. I did the same with the tittle DREAM. I just used different colors and more glam.

Below: I used the DONNA DOWNING foam stamp from PRIMA to make the steamed flowers. Stamped in different colors cut out. Foam tape then glossy to finish it off.
