CC102 Personal Challenge

Well, I decided to set myself a personal challenge today to see how many of the 30 techniques I learned in Tim's latest on line class called Creative Chemistry 102 (CC102 for short) I could squeeze onto one scrapbook page!

The answer is 25!

Here is how I started:
I chose my 3 favourite Distress inks ( Picked Raspberry, Ripe Persimmon & Mustard Seed) and that was my jumping point.  I also went for a nature theme and stuck to leaves, organic shapes and butterflies as much as I could.
Then some more stencil work
Finally a finished base page:
I set about creating all the embellishments with as many of the techniques as I this stage I was thinking that I should maybe make it a double page layout!

Here are some close ups of the final layout showing some detail.
I have used 5 different techniques on the butterflies seen below.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the results of 7 hours at my desk, broken only to go make lunch for the family!
