This Day Mixed Media Layout for ***The Dusty Attic***

Goodmorning lovelies, 
Today it's me Amy here with you to share a mixed media layout using the gorgeous December mood board as my inspiration! I am a hugh fan of the color purple but I don't use it very often because I think it's a very hard color to scrap but it goes lovely with the colors grey and white. 
So on my layout you will find some touches of purple, I really love that quote so I have used that with a picture of hubby and I! Lets'take a look at the December mood board: 

This Day: 
I started with a sheet of the pretty "Cotton Candy" collection by 7 Dots Studio that I primed with clear gesso. Then I used a couple of Lindy's Stamp Gang sprays, background stamps, art stones large/tiny and past to compliment my layout. I see myself as a starter creating these kind of layouts because for me it feels a layout is done when I stitched on it in any way so this way it feels unfinished! Is that something I only think?? Or do you have the same thing with something you didn't add on your works??

The beautiful chipboard pieces are gessod with black gesso accept for the two corner pieces those are primed with white gesso and later on I used some dark purple Lindy's powder on them. I had so much fun creating this layout and let me tell you I had trouble cleaning my hands to get to work at my day job hihi got to love that!

Lately I am hooked on using straws {don't know where that comes from it must be a phase I am going through} Do you ever use them??? The flowers on my layout are by several companies and I added some purple mica powder and white gesso on top of them to give them some sparkle.
At the end I added some diamond gems and two metal hearts.
