Nature --for TioT's

is the new challenge theme at Try it on Tuesdays.
A mixed media page from me
 All the details are  here .
. You can use any style or medium  and I'm sure you will be inspired
 by what the girls have been making.
Our Guest Designers are chosen from our Top 5 winners
Today our Our guest designer is
Bluebeard and Elizabeth at Altered Book Lover.

The base layer for the page  was embossed using a Tim Holtz stencil and when dry I  lightly sprayed the colours [home mixed]  and rubbed the raised areas with gilding wax.
The poppy and quote are Indigo Blu stamps.  I used some Graphics 45 pieces, as well as some fabrics
 to finish the page.

Thank you for calling to see me today, I always appreciate the comments you leave.me.
