Love, Cherish, Adore (Swirlydoos, Dusty Attic, Helmar)

I'm back today to share one last project for this month that I created using the very pretty March Dusty Attic sketch, chipboard and the remainder of my March Swirlydoos "Vintage Chic" kit. This kit has a beautiful mix of Prima and Authentique papers that go so well together. The Prima kit flowers are soooo heavenly too!

I think one of my favourite chipboard items is the skeleton clock face set (DA0430). I have used them on several projects over the past few years and never tire of their classic look. I also used an entire pack of words (DA0025) - these were so fitting for the photo of my grandparents on their wedding day. 

Sometimes almost bare chipboard really fits the look of your project. For the larger clock I simply gave it a grungy look by randomly adding some charcoal chalk ink. For the smaller clock I used the same ink but saturated it to give it more contrast against the clock that I fussy cut from paper - it was a perfect fit! Just looks at the gorgeous Prima flowers from this month's Swirlydoos kit - divine!

As for the words, I used amber Silks paint (from my February Swirlydoos kit) and then once again took the charcoal chalk ink to them to tone down the shimmer. Sometimes simple finishes are all your project demands. I find that ink goes a long way for heritage projects.

Here is the gorgeous Dusty Attic sketch by Mistra Hoolahan this month. Don't forget to enter the DA challenge each month for a chance to win a prize pack. visit the Dusty Attic NING site for more details!
NOTE: I used a lot of Helmar goodness to stick all of my project together. I used the premium craft glue on the paper layers, the 450 quick dry on the flowers, the adhesive runner for the photo and the acid-free for all the chipboard.
