The weekend of my birthday, I took a Mixed Media Class. We learned about different mediums and collage. It was a great two days. One of the ladies gave me a paper towel to use and of course I couldn't use it to clean up once I saw the pretty butterflies on it.  

The background for this page was done with that paper towel. I peeled the layers apart glued it with matte medium. I love how the book text shows through. The words and other elements are from a Seth Apter stencil that I purchased from Stencil Girl and acrylic paint.  Stencil Girl has wonderful stencils.  This page was done in my Things That Fly book.

  4. Hey Boo. What a wonderful two page spread in your book. Love the fact that you "up cycled" the paper towel and really love your creative use of my stencil. Thank you!!
