Counterfeit Kit Challenge #1 and a memory maze layout.

The first challenge on Counterfeit Kits was an inspiration picture of a tree in a field.
This layout seemed to fit the criteria.I originally made it for a challenge on Soul Scrappers but I have used items from my Counterfeit Kit.
The chipboard bunnies are dabbed grey with a small dab of white gesso to resemble fur.
The tree is a multi step process.I'm using MEMORY MAZE CHIPBOARD
Memory Maze Chipboard

First paint selected areas with gesso. Allow to dry.
Next add strips of brown paint over the gesso.It doesn't have to be perfect.
 
Then mist over the whole tree. I've used Tattered Angels "SugarMaple"
 
This gives your tree a mottled effect,like bark.
