This is my first project and I have used strips of papers from the 75 Cents collection & the Pickled Pear Collection from Keisercraft that can be found in the ScrapPleizer shop.
The textured background was archived by adding thin gesso over the paper strips, then differentshades of green and turquoise mists (from Dylusions - also in the shop). When dry I added a bit of modeling paste trough a stencil. After everything was completely dry I placed my photo and the embellishments. I love how the die cut titel (from Keisercraft) turned out after I distressed it a bit with splatters of black ink.
I hope you enjoyed my project and that I could give you some inspiration to create with your leftover strips.
