More Than Words November challenge

I absolutely LOVE this months challenge at More Than Words

Wood grain is definitely my most favourite design element to scrap with, I love the textures and the outdoorsy/ beachy feel to it. 
And I have 2 energetic boys that love exploring, so I have plenty of outdoors photos to scrap. 

So here is the page I made with this challenge in mind.

I have used a piece of Blue Fern Studio Wanderlust - 'Pacific Coast' paper. I liked the blue tint of the wood grain pattern, but it was quite 'beachy', being from a coastal collection, so I 'dirtied' it up a bit with some brown ink.  

I created a mixed media background using Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Dusts and watercolour Colour Shimmer Cubes. 
I recreated the rocks in the photo by using Colour Blast Colour Paste 
through a Fabrika Decoru stencil.

My chipboard title is from Dusty Attic, and I coloured that with inks. I also added some Dusty Attic chipboard viewfinders, but kept them raw to add to the outdoors theme.
I coloured an Imaginarium Designs fern chipboard piece with Colour Blast Colour Shimmer Dust in 'Lush' that I had used in the background. I added some muslin under my photo. I coloured this with Colour Blast 'Peacock' Colour  Shimmer Spray.

I added a flair from Flutterby Designs, flowers, string and some resin flowers from D-Lish Scraps.  I also added a Tim Holtz word sticker and the branding strip from the Blue Fern paper.
