Here is the page I made:
Supplies used: Cardboard for the background; Patterned papers: Jillibean Soup (Watermelon Gaspacho); Banner: Sassafras Lass; Alphabet: American Craft; Arrows: Sudio Calico; Other: Crafters Workshop stencil and gesso, Circle stamp, Rollograph text stamp.
Yes...that is right the product I recycled was a box that I received some supplies in. I cut it into a 12x12 square and then started distressing it to let the corrugated bits show. Here are some close ups:
You can see how I applied the gesso through the stencil and then rolled the rollergraph stamp across to create more texture.
I edited my photo in Picassa because it was very washed out and Lukas blended with the background...I then applied the Holga-ish filter to the photo to bring out the colours.
I love how the bright and happy Jellibean Soup papers pop on the kraft background.
I used this sketch for my page:
