Mixed media layers for CVC

It's my turn to share a project over at Country View Crafts Project Blog and I have created a mixed media background that will be used for one of my journal panels.

Continuing with the blue and green theme of the CVC challenge this is the start of the layers ....


... and this is what I ended up with.


To finish it of for my new journal I sanded the edges, gave it a wash of quinacridone gold and blended ground espresso distress ink round them.


As I had decided this was going on the back cover I used a sentiment that my lovely friend Jane at Jane's Journal had stamped for me when I had broken my ankle and it just seemed to fit.


If you'd like to see the process steps please pop over to the CVC project blog to see all the details.


Have a wonderful weekend.
