Lombard Street


I created another layout last night! Here's Lombard Street in San Fran last summer. Very cool. 

I decided to play along with the Paper Mixing Bowl. I have been wanting to try one of their challenges for ages. The recipe included following a sketch, using green prominently, to journal about travel and to use several "utencils." I chose burlap, a postmark (my World Traveler stamp), plus lots of torn edges. 

I also linked up with Simon Says Stamp and Show again for "favourite technique." I am loving all things hexagon lately. So I sponged some gesso onto the background with my Crafters Workshop 12x12 reverse chicken wire stencil. Then I randomly added swipes with my new PTI chicken wire background stamp. I love how it turned out!





Here's a few close ups...

This IS a great LO featuring your painting and stamping techniques. I like how your page makes my eyes stay on it, I keep looking it over and your journaling spot keeps drawing my eyes back. And the layer of papers with the butterfly in the top left corner is a very cute touch. Thanks for playing at the Paper Mixing Bowl!
