Explore the Lake LO ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Hello! I'm back with this layout of my son, just in the knick of time for some July challenges featuring a couple of stamps from Red Rubber Designs!

     My design inspiration started with this sketch from Stuck?!sketches with some old scraps of Kaisercraft wood papers attached to white cardstock with some small metal brads in the corners.

     Next came a layer of Prima Heavy White Gesso applied to the papers and background. Once dry, I used the TCW Texturized and Well Rounded Stencils all over the background, and again waited for the gesso to dry before having fun with Lindy's Stamp Gang July Color Challenge.

      Everything on this page was colored with sprays and magicals, and the stamping embossed with Midnight Pewter Embossing Powder. To bring out the fencing from the photo, I used the Chicken Wire Background Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp, stamped onto a Tim Holtz Manila Tag and the black cardstock mounting it, before distressing the edges.

     The title came from the July More Than Words Challenge to use the word EXPLORE, done with a mix of old alpha stickers and buttons.

     The creative challenge was to use arrows which I embossed with the Elegant Arrows Cling Mounted Rubber Stamp. Then I finished it off with some hand stitching.

     Such a fun color palette, and awesome texture from the gesso and magicals! Thanks for looking!
