Life's Journey

I attended a wonderful mixed media workshop last weekend, conducted by none other than Anna Dabrowska-Pekocka aka Finnabair. We worked on three separate projects, and this layout is one of them. I must say it was a most satisfying workshop, and I learned so many new mixed media techniques there.

For this layout in particular, we used a plain white cardstock as the background, and did some embossed stamping, splashed tea bags and distress stains over it, and then did more stamping on top of that.

We then layered papers, canvas flowers, chipboard pieces, and other embellishments on the layout. I love the entire look that was created!
