This is a photo of my DD that I took with my Muse lens. Her hand is mostly in focus while everything else is blurred and moved to the background of the photo. You should see it in person. I also have some really gorgeous Dusty Attic pieces in there. It is the candelabra and the swirly frame at the bottom. I can't tell you how much I love Dusty Attic. These pieces come unfinished so you can do whatever your heart desires.
I took two background papers and combined them. I cut the red stage curtain from one paper and applied it to another. I then cut a slit underneath the "top" curtain so that I could place that gorgeous fringe behind it. I inked the Dusty Attic pieces with Red Brick Distress Ink and then applied Black Soot Distress Embossing powder. I love this embossing powder because after you have applied heat, some of the powder is designed to fall off so you get a true distressed somewhat gritty appearance. It is fabulous.
Then I took some black metal from Ten Seconds Studio. It is coated black on one side and not on the other. I used some of their slim border molds to emboss the metal and create a picture frame and I also used my 6 petal flower punch and punched out flowers. As you can see by looking at the flowers I layered two of the flowers leaving the stainless steel looking side for the bottom. I took my sanding block and distressed the black side and then took mirror ball jewels (this is a musical page after all) and glued them to the center. I also cut out flowers, leaves and vines using my SCAL software and my Cricut. The big flower at the bottom is a Flora Doodle flower. I inked and stickled the flowers with Aged Mahogany, Red Brick and Black Soot Distress Inks, and Burgundy Stickles. I used Moss, Peeling Paint and Black Soot on the leaves. I also distressed a tag that says Soulful. Here is a close up of the flowers.
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look. Would love for you to leave me a comment!!
