Summer Nature Walk

My son Evan in August 2017

For this layout I used some Blue Fern Studios papers.

Wanderlust- Wanderlust Petites

Wanderlust - Road Trip
Blue Fern Studios
Timeless - Keepsakes

I did some stencilling on the background using a Clarity Stencil Brush and Weathered Wood Distress Ink.

Tim Holtz

These are the punches and dies I used:

Romantic Rectangles
Martha Stewart
Checker Board
In Stitches

This is one of the chipboard pieces I used:

Blue Fern Studios
Spring Branch

The diamond-shaped tile border was by a now defunct brand called Harmonie.

I heat-embossed the Spring Branch with different colours of Distress embossing powder (Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters).  I started by embossing the whole thing with the Peeled Paint colour and then using an embossing marker on the parts I wanted to emboss with the other colours.

The diamond-shaped border pieces were coated with clear gesso and then Ranger Texture Paste Opaque Crackle.  When that was dry I rubbed some ink overtop to highlight the cracks more and grunge it up.

Thank you so much for taking a look!
