"Haku Lei" Layout by DT Claire

Hello Everyone!
Check out today's featured layout created by DT Claire
inspired by our
"I have a stash of chipboard pieces so I decided to tackle them for this challenge 
and start using them up. 
S: Stencil. I used Heidi Swapp mini stencils with distress ink on white cardstock.
T: Thread. I added some machine stitching to my layout.
E: Enamel Dots. I am almost out of Enamel Dots, what is a scrapper to do?
N: Numbers. I added Studio Calico numbers to the title.
C: Chipboard. I had a bunch of chipboard frames (CTMH) in my stash so I decided to make a background using them. I applied gesso then gelatos then water then matte medium. 
I: Ink. I used Ranger distress ink in Raspberry and Peacock Feathers, Heidi Swapp Gold Mist and gelatos in various colors.
L: Left Over bits and pieces from the My Mind's Eye Chalk Studio collections."
