Oh Hay!

Good Monday morning, everyone!
Today I have a little tip to show you using all the goodies from the
November Willow Creek kit. In particular - the FUN distress stain that's in
the kit. I had SO much fun playing with it. 
Here's a layout I did using the stain, plus a couple of masks as my background.
The hexagon Mr. Huey mask was in the September Evening Stroll kit.
The arrows is a Crafters Workshop mask I had in my stash.

I used the stain on top of the masks and dotted, rubbed & pressed
to get the right effect I wanted. I then took a pen and drew around the
hexagons & arrows to make the stain stand out.
The leaves are the "outside" remnants of a layout I did a couple of weeks
ago here on the blog. I simply covered the cardstock I rubbed the stain on
and trimmed around the patterned paper, letting the arrows & hexagons show through.

I'm very happy with how fun & fallish my leaves look!

Here's a couple of closer shots:

I hope you enjoyed my little tip & that you try something fun with your stain
and your November Willow Creek kit!
thanks so much, have a wonderful day!
