Nature Park

Hi there this is my entry for the Kraft Plus Challenge for July.

The only stipulations were to use Kraft as the background, and use yellow.

I started by using a complete sheet of kraft cardstock and using a lovley 12 x 12 stencil with cogs I painted the entire page. Then I cut out the circles to use on the layout.

Using a second of kraft cardstock, I have used Colorbox fluid chalk ink in the colour Lime pastel and using a large background stamp I have covered the entire sheet. It’s very hard to see in the photo but.

Using Colorbox fluid chalk inks in Blackbird and Coral I have randomly stamped the strips. I then added a little washi tape as a border and a little here and there to fill spaces. As the photos are of my son Wayne and Grand daughters Kirra and Khloe at the Ipswich Nature Park I decided to add some stamped animals to complete my layout.

Thanks for dropping by, Sharon
