A new month...a new sketch at Stick-It-Down...a new scrapbook page...with new techniques...

I made this layout keeping in mind the sketch I created for Stick-It-Down challenge this month...
Do visit the Stick-It-Down blog and join us along for a fun challenge...

Details - The horizontal stripes were made 2 by adding gesso through 2 stencils (Finnabair Bubbles and Balzer Design Rug)  and second by stamp with a hand-carved stamp...yes you read it right...this is one of my first hand-carved stamps... Anyways...I coloured them with 3 colours of, butterscotch and chocolate

I love how the frame turned out...To achieve the texture I coloured it with Vintage Photo DI...then clear embossed with Finnabair Woodgrain stamp and went over it with black Archival Ink...removing the ink from the embossed parts with a paper napkin.

Also I added some texture on the background with the versatility of gesso...

The Title are wooden letters from a local craft store (coloured them black)..the butterfly is form Hiedi Swapp Dreamy Ephemera collection(I coloured the butterfly to match the page)...the Arrow is from Heidi Swapp September Skies Wood Veneer collection(coloured it black) and the Explore sticker is from my stash...
