I took this photo of a cute little Tasmanian Bettong when on holiday in Tasmania during Christmas 2013.
When I saw the August Dusty Attic (DA) inspiration board challenge, with the gorgeous Autumn colours, I jumped at the chance to scrap it - using the beautiful Couture Creations papers along with an EK Success punch, representing the natural rustic feel in the LO.
I started off by 'experimenting' to see what would happen when I used the Dusty Attic chipboard trellis as a stencil; rubbing over it with glass bead glitter gel with a finger violet Inka-Gold...I thought it just a little too much for my photo so toned down with a dabber of mustard seed distress paint. I then added some shabby muslin coloured with Lindy's Stamp Gang (LSG) Moon shadow Mist.
To draw attention to of the cute little guy hiding in the pipe, and attempting to represent the dry rustic nature of the enclosure, I snipped around the #DA0821 chipboard, coloured it with Rusty Brown ink and adhered the edging to the photo.
***NB*** Unfortunately the place I buy most of my supplies (Scrapping Outback) owner and talented Rachelle is having huge issues with the SO website at the moment so I wasn't able to get the links...so if you'd like ANY of the supplies I've used, please contact Rachelle via Facebook. TIA.
