Just-A-Scrappin' Challenge for July 18 2013 is Celebrate the great outdoors and Mother Nature using neutral colors and watercolor pencils or chalks.  I do chalks because I have no watercolor pencils. so here's my LO for this one.
Here I used pictures to go next to a LO of the backyard that does not have the close ups of the flowers.  I used My Studio Brass Stencil of the butterfly and Lady Bugs with The Stencil Collections pastel chalks.  It's easy to use but it does need to set and I have a problem getting may arm into the chalk.  I places the pictures trimmed and used the corner rounder then marked where they would go.  Having that I placed the butterfly and Lady Bug stencils and used painters tape to hold while applying the chalks.  This is easy, just pick the color, dip the brush (stiff) and apply to stencil being careful not to get it on the arm.  Remove the stencil and let sit overnight.  I like how the butterfly and Lady Bug came out.  It been years since I used the chalk, but I'll be using them more now.  How about You?  Join us for the challenge at Just-A-Scrappin'
