Echo Park The Wild Life "Dude" by Fiona Johnstone

Hello everyone

Today I am sharing a layout I have created using the awesome, outdoorsy collection, The Wild Life by Echo Park. A recent photo of my son, who clearly didn't want his photo taken at the time.

I've created a lightly masked background using a 12 x 12 crafters workshop template and a distress ink in a similarly toned colour for a subtle background. I love the fresh green and oranges in these papers and extended it to my embellishments. The papers I have torn and layered and inserted some sheer fabric between the layers for added depth.
These gorgeous 2Crafty pieces are Heidi's Vines. I have inked them in a combination of brown , green and orange inks to represent the pattern on one of the paper sheets. I have used these in opposite corners with a bunch of paper leaves to create added layers. 
To complete my layout I have used a variety of green, brown and orange embellishments from my stash. 

Thanks for stopping by
Till next week

  1. I love how you created the background!! I thought the paper was like that. Just awesome!

  2. That tree stencil has a great effect and perfect for this theme. Your subject doesn't look too thrilled, hope we are not growing out of posing for the camera just yet!
