Smells Like Teen Spirit

I did this layout to capture my older DD at 17. I wanted lots of textures for the layout, so I began with a textured piece of cardstock and worked my way from there, using a mask to first apply some white acrylic paint to it.

I then water distressed and inked the patterned papers, and added some corrugated cardboard, muslin, twine, and lots of metal embellishments.

The title, of course, is a song by Nirvana, one of my rocker girl's fave bands. :)
