Here is my take on the Enmarc Crafts' DT Challenge for December 2011. Thank you Enmarc for the parcel stuffed with yummie goodies J

I had this rust paint stuff for a couple of months and decided it’s NOW or never! At first I painted the hinges and tree trunks with brown craft paint and then with the rust paint, but I wasn’t satisfied with the outcome. I then added texture paste onto the chippies and when it was dry, I used the rust paint which then gave me a better result. The foliage of the Acacia was painted with Dewdrop Fluid Chalks
