I just love that this week Websters Pages & Dusty Attic is doing a product collaberation in which both design teams get to work with both companies products together! I was sent this beautiful 12x12 Display Frame a while back from Dusty Attic and finally got the chance to use it! I decided to make a Shabby-Chic wall hanging for on of my daughters bedroom. I used a combination of Websters Pages Western Romance, Postcards from Paris and Lifes Portrait Collections, along with a number of their beautiful trims and embellishments (DesignerThreads/Heart Doily, Silhouettes/Cameo, WP/Unity Stamp Set/Beauty). And from Dusty Attic I used the 12x12 Display Frame and about another 10 pieces of their beautiful laser cuts including the new Cameo Sliders (behind the cameo), Corset, 2 of the new Rose Stems, a Lamp Post #4, Baroque corners, Wrought Iron Fence, and a Wrought Iron Trim Set (along the top of the design). Here are some close-up shots of each of the sections on this home decor piece...
The Rosebud I simply painted white and used a pink and light green chalk ink on the edges to give it some subtle color.
I just LOVE these new Dusty Attic Cameo Sliders!! It's like they were specially made for the Websters Pages Silhouettes! They fit perfectly!
For the Corset chippie, I painted the whole thing with white paint, then inked it lightly with some pink chalk ink. Then I stamped the piece with a lace stamp (I used a strip stamp from an old Prima Frame stamp set for this). And then finally added some glitter with a bit of Stickles (Stardust).
TIP: I wanted to keep the pinks very soft on this project so I slightly changed the look of the Websters Pages Cameo by dabbing some Colorbox White Chalk ink over the edges of the Cameo piece...
This week the design teams of both Websters Pages and Dusty Attic will be posting their projects at a special thread in their forums. I've seen most of the projects and let me say, they are spectacular! You can view the projects made by the Dusty Attic design team girls throughout the week at this link DUSTY ATTIC FORUM ...and you can see the projects of the girls from the Websters Pages design team girls at this link WEBSTERS PAGES FORUM.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and having a peek, and thanks so much for your kind comments, your feedback means a lot to me! (Please note: I am often asked where you all can find the Dusty Attic Products, I have listed a number of great retailers for this product that are happy to ship worldwide! You can find them in the right hand column of my blog....I got a note from a number of them recently that they have just recieved new product and are fully stocked....but my advice is hurry, because I understand they sell out quickly! ...Many of them (such as http://www.staytruetogod.com/ ) will take orders too if they don't have the items you were looking for in stock!
