"As You See It" Challenge #004

Here is my take on this week's challenge. This week I really tried to challenge myself using some techniques I was not familiar with, such as using TA Glimmer Mist on my paper and Acrylic Paint on my banner and burlap swatches. I also tried really hard to move away from the oh so familiar linear style of scrapping. What can I say I like all my ducks in a row. . . LOL
The sea shell fans were taken from a template I found at the "Spotted Canary", just to give a little more dimension and texture. I'm definitely a fan of burlap and want to try it again on a few more layouts.  I strung the burlap banner through eyelets on the page, again trying to add more interest to the page.

Ingredients: Papers Used - Basic Grey Max & Whiskers Collection; Studio Calico Home Front Collection & Pink Paislee Nantucket Collection; Alpha - Pink Paislee Daily Junque Wood Alpha; Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist  Twilight; Martha Stewart Acrylic Paint - Aegean Blue; Gesso & Random Twine. Phrase was created on my computer; Random seashells; American Craft Eyelets and of course my thrifty sewing machine.
