Simon Says - Lots of Texture

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. Thank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
I created an Art Panel Collage in neutral tones decorated with paper from Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Backdrops Vol 1., Serendipity Collage Paper, Postmarked Sticker Book, Cello Sticker Tape, all favourites from the new Tim Holtz Idea-ology release and Distress Texture Opague Crackle with the Mini Layering Stencil from Set 60 to add texture.
I trimmed the Idea-ology Backdrops Vol 1. paper to 5.3/4 x 7.3/4", fixed to Distress White HeavyStock and applied a light layer of White Gesso using Tim Holtz/Ranger Distress Small Brayer.
I traced around the Serendipity Collage paper image with a Detailer Waterbrush and separated the paper using my fingers.
I fixed the collage paper to the panel using Distress Collage Medium, added the neutral stamps from the Idea-ology Postmarked Sticker Book. The stamps are self adhesive but I applied a coat of Distress Collage Medium over the top just to make sure they were well and truly stuck down.
I applied Scorched Timber Distress Oxide ink through the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous CutOut Alpha Layering Stencil using a Tiny Blending Brush and added Idea-ology Cello Sticker Tape. I'm totally in love with these cool stickers and can guarantee they will be making an appearance on lots of future projects.
I applied Distress Texture Paste Opaque Crackle through the Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Deco Floral Mini Layering Stencil from Set 60 and set aside to dry and the magic crackle to appear.
I applied a coat of Distdress Collage Medium over the panel, scribbled Faded Jeans and Peeled Paint Distress Crayons over the crackled areas and blended with a damp finger. I fixed the panel to Distress Black HeavyStock trimmed to 6" x 8" and fixed to Sizzix Mat Board trimmed to fit an 8" x 10" photo frame.
I added Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Clippings Stickers and Ruler Pieces Findings
I die-cut butterfly bodies from Distress Black HeavyStock using Tim Holtz/Sizzix Flutter Framelits and fixed to butterflies from Tim Holtz/Idea-ology Transparent Wings pack.
To finish I fixed the butterflies to the panel with Distress Collage Medium applied to the body section.
