Not much for new techniques used on this LO. I chose colors that brought out the greens in the photo and added the nesting birds as a reference to the photos subject matter. I inked and distressed various edges. I also machine stitched the border/frame. I used a sketch from Scrapbook Steals as my inspiration.

This particular layout is a combination of MME, WP, and Dusty attic. I purchased the fence pieces at Altered Art and Scrap Playground in Rapid City, SD (http://scrapandplay.blogspot.com/). They seemed to fit with the theme of this LO in there unaltered state so I just adhered them as is. The trims and fussy cut images are WP and the background paper is MME, Lost and Found.
