Dusty Attic Double Embossed

Hi, Everyone,

Dusty Attic has incredibly detailed chipboard pieces to enhance any project.
Have a look at the 1st Vintage layout I created using 3 different packages of their die cuts.  The 2nd & 3rd layouts will follow in separate posts.  This easily could have been a Canvas, an Art Journal Cover, an Altered Box, or even a Card.

These are the chipboard pieces I used:
Baroque Frame set circle, Vintage Camera small, Filmstrips small.

I used 4 different Embossing Powders on the chipboard pieces:
Zing Black, Ranger Ancient Gold Princess Gold,  Ranger Antiquities Turquoise, Stampendous Aged Silver.  I cut apart the Baroque Frame set & used 2 pieces.

 I love how the Turquoise & Aged Silver look underwater Patina!

Glossy Accents is the best adhesive for gluing clear items to your projects.  You do not see the glue through the glass.

Here I used one of Daryl's Vintage Monocles you can purchase at Treasured Memories.

I started off with a piece of paper from BoBunny, which is beautiful enough on its own.

The edges of the paper were inked with Vintage Photo & Walnut Distress Inks.  Wendy Vecchi Metallic Silver Embossing Paste was applied through Tim Holtz Splatters Stencil then heat set.  I always encourage the embossing paste to bubble because I love the look.

With the same Splatters Stencil, I rubbed Walnut Ink in the opposite corners.

This is the layout all put together.  The only thing that is not popped with foam pop dots is the Eye Chart.  Look at the corners of the layout.  They are embossed with Aged Silver embossing powder.
I absolutely LOVE it!

Have fun creating!


  1. Beautiful piece Kathleen! Gorgeous flourish and that image is wonderful. Love it! Karen.x

    1. Antique Photos are awesome. I love using them & other vintage pieces such as the monocle in my projects. These Dusty Attic die cuts & the BoBunny paper really add to the layout. Oh, & don't forget the Splatters!
