Hi there everyone & welcome :)
I'm finally back to share my last layout as part of my entry for last years Scrapbooking Memories Master's competition. The 4th criteria was to create a layout with a unique background.
This one was my least favourite out of the 4 entries that I created, and was the one that I thought may let me down in my entry. But ironically, it is the one that received an Honourable Mention!!! LOL...go figure! Just goes to show you never know what other people see in your work, and I guess we are sometimes our own worst critic!
So anyways...on with my layout :)
I've used lots of mixed media products for my background...and I guess it is quite unique, as I don't think I could replicate it if I tried! lol. There's muslin, gyprocker's mesh tape, texture paste, gesso, mists, stamping & gelato's and I've used a CW template, Kaisercraft stamp & the end of a cardboard roll to create my background using the products just mentioned :)

Lots of texture added to my 2Crafty chipboard & finished off by painting in glimmermist.

The papers I used are a mixture of fairly old Basic Grey collections - I couldn't tell you exactly which ones though, but they are all BG.
and my journaling about my coffee addicted husband....lol
So that is the end of my Master's entries for 2013.
I guess this years comp will be here before we know it....are you going to apply this year?!?
Thanks so much for taking the time to read through my post :)
Enjoy your weekend everyone....xx
