Serenity by Charmane Koch

 Happy Monday & almost the end of January! Already??? How does that even happen?

Today I wanted to share one of the layouts I have created over the weekend for an Australian Day Crop! What is more perfect than the Aussie Bushland Collection? I managed to create 3 layouts using this fabulous collection - and of course I have STACKS more to use! It's so full of possibilities!

The papers are just so gorgeous! And the Dies & stencil I used as well of course!

I started off by cutting out a few Aussie Flowers & Aussie Leaves & Autumn Trio Dies using White Cardstock & Kraft Cardstock... I always cut out extra and came in handy as I used them on the other layouts I created!

Next, using Thick Modelling Paste {or you could use the Heavy White Gesso} I used the Aussie Map Stencil laying it over the Cockatoo Paper.

While that dried, I decided I needed to colour some Muslin but wanted to make a colour that would match the background paper - so I combines Tan & Amber Shimmer Dusts the colour came out perfect!

I also coloured a White Paper flower that I wanted to use on the page...

To create my Photo Matte I layered Kraft Cardstock, then another layer of Aussie Bushland Collection. I also tore a piece of cardboard from one of our many Deliveries we get {LOL} to create a textured background behind the photo matte, allowing me to add a few bits around the edges of the photo to create interest - cutouts from the Aussie Bushland Collection and from my stash - mini doilies & Paper Leaves.

After working out the positioning of my Photo Matte & playing around with my Die Cut Leaves/Flowers I then stick them down...

I carefully stick them down with double sided tape behind the Photo Matte like so...

I also had the Wildflowers stamp in my stash that I had stamped onto Tissue Paper that I thought was perfect for the photo... {you may have seen this stamp in another recent layout of mine?}

I stick it down with Gel Medium - can you see I wasn't careful enough? I had to get a black pen a fix "Yourself" up! OOPS!

So once everything was stuck down and the Tissue Paper dried, I added all the extra embellishments to finish it off...

I layered the Muslin, more Dies & Cutouts...

a Charms Creations Little Floral Tab...

Fixed up the Y & as you can see I did machine stitch around the edge of the layout - I did trim 1/2cm off the edge of the Cockatoo Paper, distressed it and then used Kraft Cardstock to back it. I think doing this ties the whole layout together.

I absolutely loved putting this layout together, and it was so easy with all the different Aussie Bushland & extra Bee Arty Goodies! So much fun!
