Be Awesome!

Hey there!
Today I am sharing a layout I created for Creative Embellishments July challenge. I love their chipboard and decided to use a cattail piece on this layout of Austin at the lake:

Here are some close ups:
I used Simple Stories So Rad for this page
I used a TCW Stencil, some ink, negative punched pieces and a Creative Embellishment wood veneer sun colored with a Gelato here:

I layered some bits and pieces of the So Rad papers from the 6x6 paper pad and added watercolors, stitching and stamping to my background:

I used a frame from the So Rad collection and the "Awesome" diecut is from that too:

Here you can see more of my background work:

This is the cattail piece I used from Creative Embellishments. I added texture paste to give lots of dimension and then colored with Gelatos and paint:

I love how it turned out! The other part of the challenge was to inspired by this photo:
I was inspired by the brown, white and greens in this photo.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
