Ultimate Crafts 'Australiana' for The Scrapbook Store

Hi there scrappy people. Today I want to share my October DT work for The Scrapbook Store with you.  I was lucky enough to work with the gorgeous new Ultimate Crafts 'Australiana' collection.  This collection was ideal for my local travel photos and all those country shots we always take.
Here is my first layout. The photo was taken on the way between Perth and Kalgoorlie earlier this year. 
I used a chipboard flourish from the 2Crafty 'Flourish Adornment Set 1'.  I painted it in dark brown and then heat embossed it randomly using gold embossing powder.  The white flowers were fussy cut from one of the patterned papers in the range. The other flowers are from Petaloo and Green Tara mini roses.
I added some corrugated cardstock to add to the rustic feeling. ;)
And a vintage clock charm and some twine to round things off.
I've also coloured up some Dusty Attic 'mini dragonflies' with my Distress markers.
My next layout has a bit more colour to it.  This was the first holiday home we rented in Margaret River 10 years ago when my parents came to visit us.  It really was the perfect 'little' house and we still think very fondly of this holiday.  All the background stenciling were done using the gorgeous new Crafters Workshop 'mini Tuscan Wall' stencil, designed by the very talented Gabrielle Pollacco.
The bigger flowers in the cluster are Kaisercraft paper blooms and the little ones are from Petaloo and Green Tara mini roses.  I've added another chipboard flourish from the 2Crafty 'Flourish Adornment Set 1'
This beautiful corner piece is Dusty Attic 'Floral Corners' chipboard.  I coloured it up using my Luminarte 'Silks' paints and then added a few more Petaloo blooms and Green Tara mini roses.
For my title, I inked up a mini WOW chipboard word and added some stickers from my stash.

For my last layout I used photos of an old rusted car we discovered on a recent road trip.
I used another new Crafters Workshop stencil called 'Mini Organic Matter mask', also designed by Gabrielle Pollacco (one clever lady I'd say).  This time I teamed my stencil up with Prima 'Copper Crackle' Texture paste.  I lightly sprayed my piece of background paper with water and crumpled it up.  Once it dried, I just smoothed it out and inked the bumps and edges for some instant rustic texture. :)

Some corrugated card and an old car I cut from one of the patterned papers.
Some Petaloo blooms again and this time teamed up with Dusty Attic 'Foliage #3' chipboard.
I just love the old fuel pump to the right of the car that says 'Last Fill'. :)
I hope you made it through the whole post.  It seems to be my thing lately to leave everything for one post.  If you are here, I thank you for visiting and for any comments you might leave. It's always very appreciated.
Until next time.
