The background is molding paste through a Crafter's Workshop stencil. Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Sprays, Gesso and Black Staz On finish it off.
I tore the edges of my photo, lightly spritzed with water and sanded out the background. Layer of Golden Glaze over the sanded parts and put my journaling directly on the photo. Edge with black ink and adhered to the page.
This layout was featured in the January issue of Scrapbook News and Review.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
