Dusty Attic September Moodboard/Sketch Challenge - Memories Documented

Hi everyone,
Today I have my take on this month's Mood Board/Sketch Challenge created with a few of the new Dusty Attic chipboard and stencil designs as well as some old favourites.

Don't forget you still have time to enter for your chance to win a $100 prize voucher from The Dusty Attic. All you have to do is just use the sketch or just the Mood Board or both together, the only "rule" is that there is Dusty Attic chipboard used on your creation. 
The inspiration I took from the Moodboard this month was the photo of the deer and the sketch, which I turned upside down.

"Memories Documented"
When I saw the photo of the deer in this month's Mood Board, I knew I would have to use one of the photos Luke took whilst at a Nara Deer Park in Japan.

To create my background, I stenciled first with the Crosshatch Stencil and Rose Gold Metallic Lustre, then stenciled over the top with the Leaves #3 Stencil and Mossy Ink.  To soften the ink I lightly sponged over with gesso, then stamped over the top with Kaisercraft Tiny Dot texture stamp in Rich Cocoa ink.  Lastly, I added some splatters of Lindy's Creme Brulee Cream Starburst Mist.
I used some of the cute Deer chipboard in the layers surrounding my photo.  To alter the chipboard, I coated the deers with Metallic Lustre in Rose Gold and White Frost on the antlers. I then lightly stamped on the edge of the deer in brown ink with tiny dot texture stamp, which I softened with a light sponging of gesso.
Here is one of the new release chippies Wildflowers #7... they are so pretty and delicate!!  Again I have used Metallic Pastes to colour my chipboard... I am addicted to them, and they are so easy to apply on your chipboard pieces.  You also have the added bonus of a touch of sparkle!!
A few more of the new release chipboard packs are the Mini Tabs #5 and Mini Dots which come in Black and Raw and just perfect to incorporate into your layers.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
