Anyway, this is one of the challenges I did at the retreat, and I loved it. The colours and the sketch worked well for one of the photos from my recent hot air balloon ride (a 50th birthday present).
I used a TCW stencil and ink to create the hexagon background, then layered a heap of patterned paper together, in a technique I learned at the retreat in a class with Kim Price, and a technique I now call "just stick it down". I have then added a few different embellishments and rubons to my page with some cotton. I think this layout took me about 2 hours to create - a far cry from my usual 7-8 hours of procrastination, lol.
Thanks for looking at my layout and any comments you may leave.
