Out in Nature Layout

Hello Everybody!

There's a new challenge at Scrap It Girl!  The challenge is to do a project for Mothers or Mother Earth.  How fun is that!

So I went with Mother Nature for this layout.  My son is even wearing a shirt that says Love Your Mother and then there is the Earth.  I love it when a plan comes together! :)


Here are a few close ups:


This circle is from a DCWV paper pad, the bird is K&Company, and the arrow is from Fancy Pants.  The 3 I received in a package.


Papers are from Jillibean Soup, My Mind's Eye, Bella Blvd, Coredinations Cardstock.  The green embossed tree paper-it has just been in my paper stash forever.  ;)  The birds on a line are a washi tape from Recollections.

These birds are Tim Holtz rubons. 


More Tim rub-ons and the light modeling paste was mixed with green tea Gelato to achieve this color.  I used a Heidi Swapp stencil.


I am also submitting this layout to Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #6.

This is their sketch.  Also there is a twist-use an old item and a new item and use them together.  My old item is the Out in Nature title banner and the leaf picture die cut.  My newest items are the 3 Tim Holtz Remnants (rub-ons).  


I cut the banner off of the sheet of die cuts.  This is from SEI from 2002.  Yeah, that's over 10 years old!  The leaf is from Colorbok.  It doesn't have a year on the package but trust me-I have a whole pack of these leaves, and they have been here awhile!


So I used a distressing tool to rough up the edges and inked the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress ink.  Welcome to the 21st century old banner ;)  



Thank you so much for stopping by!  Can't wait to see what you create!  Until next time my friends...Happy May!
