Challenge No. 22 @ Scrap Africa and more Bo Bunny 'The Avenues'

Hi everyone! I hope your week started off well. I have been very busy of late and I'm sure most of you will agree with me that the last 3 months of the year are always busier then any other time of the year. Well, nothing we can do about it, so better fasten the seatbelts and get ready for the ride! :)
The new challenge is live at Scrap Africa and its one that I particularly loved doing.  Talented DT member Elena Smoktunova is hosting it this month and its all about 'resisting'.  You can find all the details and see the gorgeous examples of the DT members HERE.
Here is my example.
I've used my DT kit from The Scrapbook Store and photos from one of our recent holidays. The papers and diecuts are from the Bo Bunny 'The Avenues' collection. LOVE this collection!
My method of resist was to use my Tim Holtz 'Burlap' stencil and Texture Magic.  I then applied some mists and inks over it.  One of my favourite techniques. :)
A bit of hemp twine for my circle and for the banner and a few Petaloo flowers to finish it off nicely.
The coffee cup/glass 'stains' were achieved with my Crafters Workshop 6x6 'Well Rounded' template and brown ink.  The birdie is a diecut from the Bo Bunny 'The Avenues' collection.
That's all from me today.  I hope you get a chance to play along.  You've got until the end of October to get your entries in!
Thank you for visiting!
Until next time.
