Adventure Papermixing Bowl August 2012 Challenge

I am a very new blogger as you can tell by my short posts.  I am trying to improve but my computer time is limited and I feel like I am stealing time just to create a page so that makes it harder to upload and then have to think to.  But my girls are asleep and I am going to post this before I head off to dream land. Here is the page I created and the sketch I followed from Paper Mixing bowl.  I created my page using a 12 x 12 cardboard I tore the first layer of paper off to reveal the inside. I then used G45 Tropical Travelogue paper and tore that into strips and alternated the patterns of the paper. My next layer is a rectangle lime coloured paper It is sanded. Next is a cut out shape Postage stamp print followed by my burlap mats and pics. I tucked the journal behind the pic and added a flower and some shells. My transparent object is the corners and a Postcard is behind pictures. I added a Diecut shape and adventure ticket for my title from the collection and used twine around the pics that are attached with clothes pins.  I finished by smearing molding paste on the cardboard.
