Such a Pretty Mess: The Color Room ~ Palette #72 & Some Dusty Attic & Websters Pages

Such a Pretty Mess: The Color Room ~ Palette #72 & Some Dusty Attic & Websters Pages
Not sure what happen this should have posted a few days ago...but look at the amazing work!
I made the above DT layout for this weeks new color palette over at The Color Room ~ Palette #72. This is such a pretty palette, I concentrated on the greys and soft mauve/pink for my layout with touches of the aqua and green/gold. Here is the inspiration photo for Color Palette #72
Lately my girls have been after me to redecorate their bedrooms and Chloe is all about shabby-chic design for her room. I came across this photo of a shabby-chic bedroom and was just so charmed by it.....hence the title 'wish' (my youngest took that photo of me!.....not bad job aye?)

I used cardstock and Websters Pages Country Estate papers and bloom designs cut from Websters Pages Let's Celebrate to make up this layout. The large grey bloom, the cameo (Silhouettes), the sheer white/gold trim and the white lace butterfly netting are all by Websters Pages. The chandelier, Baroque corners (around the cameo piece) and leafy vine are all from Dusty Attic (the vine is one of the new summer releases) The finish I gave the chipboard pieces is simply painted white and edged with a little brown chalk ink. I added some Tim Holtz Rock Candy to add crackle to it (Rock Candy is really cool, not a lot of steps needed, just paint it on and it cracks as it dries! ...the thicker you apply it the bigger the crackle) Here are a few close-up pics.....

I made the pink roses using simple cardstock and the Spellbinders Rose Creations die cuts, you can find my tutorial for these in my sidebar here at my blog.

If you like this palette, come join in the fun and post your project made with these colors over at The Color Palette! Each week the some of the design team members are given the fun task of browsing the gallery and choosing some of the work to feature in the newsletter.....maybe this will be your week! And while you are there have a peek at the work of the other design team members with this palette, they are spectacular!

I'm off to make my girls and their friends a really fun salty/sweet pretzel peanut butter treat that I saw on Pinterest! I'll let you know how they turn out! (I'll be posting a little post tomorrow to announce who won my little giveaway from yesterday!) ....Thankyou EVERYONE for the very sweet comments you all left me here and at Bo Bunny, I've read every single post and am so touched by your words! xx
