Rustic Canvas for Dusty Attic

Hello my scrappy pals 
welcome to my blog

Dusty Attic.
Very Rustic and Grungy with loads of texture.
This is only the second canvas I have ever created 
and I am finding them lots of fun .

I love to trim my chippies and tuck the pieces under and around
my photo.
by trimming the chippies it also makes them go further
in each project .
for example
the piece along the bottom left side
is trimmed from the ornate corner #13 1137
the remaining section is tucked and layered
around my photo.

try trimming and experimenting with your chippies .
