A2Z scraplets - january challenge

over at A2Z scraplets they do a monthly challenge. these challenges can be sketches, moodboards, recipes....anything that dt wants to set as a challenge really.
so i decided to do an example for this month.

Belinda set the challenge "to try something you have not done before"
i couldnt think of anything that wasnt going to make me spend a heap of money on scrapbooking supplies i didnt have cos lets face it....sometimes if i havent tried a technique its because i dont have the items i need. 
but then i got thinking...i love to use chipboard (especially A2Zscraplets) but i LOVE to use pattern paper!
i had never done a layout without pattern paper....have you?

so out comes my pebblestones stencilets

cos it was going to be a perfect background for my creek photo.
with a bit of gesso, some spray, threads, flower vines and metal flowers i have my page

here is how it turned out

with a close up of the pic

so we cant wait to see what you create. 

dont forget to get your entries in by the 31st of jan for a chance to win some gorgeous scraplets. 

thanks for looking and any comments you may leave.
