Hey there!
Today I am sharing a layout I created using a challenge at 123 Challenge Blog along with Paper Issues Cut It Up Challenge. I used Simple Stories Take A Hike for this layout:

I cut the cut file from white cardstock and used brown watercolor to color it. I added some watercolor to my background using the packaging technique and then added some distressed in through a stencil. Then I stitched it in place using a straight and zigzag stitch:

I added lots of stickers, some popped up with foam tape:

 I fussy cut the "Explore" card and used it as part of my title:

Here is the challenge from 123:

1. I used a variety of "Chocolate" colors
2: Explore Nature is my title
3. I used a stencil from Prima with multiple squares and inked it to add some contrast to my background.

Thanks for checking out my layout!
