Zoo Fun

Welcome to my first completed layout of 2016.  Hope you have had a great start to the new year. 
This layout has several new things for me...gesso and the packaging technique that I learned from Adele at Inkie Quill's videos.  So I used gesso on the page and them some modeling paste.  I  took some mist on a piece of old packaging, added water, and them smooshed it over the modeling paste.  I wanted to mimic the splashes the penguin was making in he water on the zoo smart car.
The paper is from an old Lawn Fawn collection called into the woods.  I didn't have any embellishments from this collection...if it even had I cut some of the critters from the paper to use.  I figured they were appropriate since the page was about a trip to the zoo.
I used a sketch from Stuck?Sketches and then used some Simple Stories photo flap thingies to add more photos. The journalling is also under the floppy thing so that the memory is there, but not adding to the busyness of the layout.
Hope you enjoyed my attempt at trying something new!
