Wedding Dresses In The Attic~Blue Fern Sketch Layout Using Attic Charm

I just love the extremely, romantic new Blue Fern Studios Attic Charm Collection! It inspired me to create projects surrounding things that you would find tucked away in your attic. This one features a wedding dress. I can just see a young girl rummaging through her grandma's attic, opening up a trunk and finding a gorgeous confection that her loved one once walked down the isle in.

The layout is based on this month's Blue Fern Sketch and you can join in on the challenge on the blog here:

I started with a layer of Attic Charm Merchantile Paper, then took a piece of Attic Charm Sachet Paper, heavily distressed and inked it, then sewed it so that I could lift the edges for dimension.
I added White Crackle Paint Accents that I over inked randomly onto the page to add an aged effect.

Next, I layered on some wide Sweetheart Lace, and then cut down a piece of Attic Charm Foyer Paper, inked and sewed the edges and created a matte for my photo.

I used the new Blue Fern Looped Frames Chipboard, to form a double circle layer under the photo. I treated the chipboard with White Crackle Paste, then randomly colored places with a distress marker and then sprinkled the pieces with Silver Pink Shard Glitter Glass.

Here you can see the bottom, smaller frame. I added Courtship Blooms and Mulberry Paper Flowers to each frame, and then added some of my hand crafted Debutante Glitter Glass Butterflies to add even more romance.

At the side of the photo, I used Blue Fern Tranquil Roses & Lilies, more mulberry paper flowers, foliage, and some gauze I shredded and added beads to.

I repeated a smaller piece at the bottom corner.

Here, I took a Blue Fern Serendipity Words 1 Inspiration Chipboard piece, inked it then added shading with a distress marker.

Here is a shot so that you can see all the dimension and texture that you can capture with those quality Blue Fern Products.

I hope you have enjoyed my first found Attic Treasure project and will join me for the next two!! Hugs ~Renea
