Dusty Attic

Dusty Attic have a great sketch by the amazing Mistra, pop over and take a peek, you have to include a Dusty Attic piece on your layout.  Here's my interpretation of the sketch.  It's my parents wedding day but unfortunately it only lasted a short time and now they've both passed so I'm not offending anyone by using this original photo (I hope).  The Dusty Attic frame took some punishment from me yesterday as I kept changing my mind and adding more paint or ink and crackle medium.  I used the technique 'Rusty Grunge' I found from Heather that she recently wrote in Scrapbook Creations on my little name plate.
I've used:
Graphic 45, Bird Song and Once Upon a Springtime
Dusty Attic Frame
Green Tara Flowers
Prima Birds
Metal Cross
Cameo from Amy (painted with pearl paint)
Making Memories Alpha
Stampi' Up! Metal Nameplate
Fussy Cutting of birds
Tim Holtz Distressing tool and inks
Liquid Pearls
Crackle Medium
Jo Sonjas paint
Kaisercraft Paint, flowers
Derivan Gesso
Texture Paste
Ribbons from Stash
