Utes in the Paddock

Wow its been a great weekend for crafting, we've been having cold weather so I thought why not do some catching up.  This is my 2nd layout completed for the weekend, so I'm pretty happy on my efforts.

I have used photos from my holiday last year to Australia.  We came across this amazing paddock in the middle of nowhere with not 1 but 15 works-of-art in the form of old holden utes transformed into many a wonderful statement.  The paddock is on private property on the Burrawang West Station, on the outskirts of Ootha, NSW.  Its fantastic, visit it if you can.

I've used Kaisercraft 'Great Southern Land' paper (which I thought was extremely fitting), and have given the whole layout that grungy/rustic feel using lots of corrugated cardboard, walnut stain distress ink, Dusty Attic barb wire (from the Rustic Charm Frame set DA0665) and Branches & Berries DA0720.  I made the flowers trying to match those on the page.  The inspiration for the large one came from Natasha at moments-of-tranquility then I used part of those techniques to create the smaller flowers.

Challenge entered with this is:
artisticcreationz - monthly sketch LO
lets craft & create - fancy edges

I love how this page has turned out as I think its quite different to what I usually do.  I hope you enjoy it as well.  I look forward to your comments.
