This background started sometime ago using leftover modelling paste, which I had coloured, and paint so I thought it would be good to work on this for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Make Your Own Background.
Next I added some pieces of two different napkins.
Next came some scraps of book text and gesso. The corner motifs were stamped onto the page and then connected with black pen. The flower and sentiment were stamped on tissue and then stuck to the page. The flower is backed by a used baby wipe. The ephemera is not my favourite par of the page but I was happier with it once I tom=ned it down with tome antique white acrylic.
