FabScraps Rustic Collection***Birds Of A Feather***

This is another layout done with FabScraps Rustic Collection. The colors are so earthy and reflect the beautiful rustic colors around us. I live in a subdivision that is also a Bird Sanctuary. There are many types of birds. There is a gorgeous owl that lives in the woods behind our home, and the Perigrine Falcons are gorgeous when perched on our rail on our Gazebo. You may see me use a lot of our nature photo's with this collection. I have plenty of photo's of the wild life in our yard. Fabscraps has a wonderful collection of chipboard to match the collection. I used the Birds Of  Feather for my title. Come visit the brand new FabScraps Blog and grow with us. You are sure to be inspired.

The flower with the rhinestone was created using the Rustic Flowers collection. Just pop them out of the page and distress and layer to your liking. The flower above it was created with the Sizzix Tim Holtz Tattered Pinecone die and a McGill Floriano punch using scraps from the paper.  The leaves were created with Sizzix Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves Die. I inked the middle and edges of the leaves and crumpled them slightly for texture.

 The chipboard title was painted with Lumiere Paint and when dry, I inked the edges with Chalk ink. The journaling was done on a piece of FabScraps Rustic Journal collection. I just cut the journaling card down to size. I journaled using  Zig Pen.

These are the flowers in the top left hand corner using the same techniques as described before.

These are the flowers and leaves on the bottom right hand part of the layout.
