This is a layout I made as a gift for a friend, using a stock photo that can be replaced. I complimented some beautiful Pion Design papers with three gorgeous pieces of Dusty Attic chipboard. Lots of heavy distressing on this shabby-chic layout too.

The first piece of chipboard used was a corner flourish # 1. This is such an elegant flourish and you get 2 pieces per pack! I simply painted it and then used some grey chalk ink on the edges.
The next chipboard piece is a birdcage #5... again you get 2 of these pretty cages per pack. I used some white crackle paint and then lightly brushed it over with grey chalk ink to highlight the cracks.
