Prima BAP March

 Morning!  Almost another week over, where do they go!?  Today I want to share the scrapbook page I have made for the Prima BAP challenge for March.  I started with a paper from Prima's Ledger paper pad for the background.  As there is a lot of sunlight in the photo I wanted to reflect this in the page somehow as though the light souce is coming from the background paper into the photo.
 To create the white areas for this light source I used a technique I learnt from Tim Holtz himself on a workshop with him.  You cover the areas you want to distress with tape and then tear it back off, taking some of the top layer of paper with it.  I love how it turned out and it makes a change from painting the white areas with gesso!
Next I took a Hero Arts stamp and some black ink to stamp over the torn off areas to extend the tree line in my photo out onto the page.
 I had a tonne of flowers picked out for this page and then decided they didn't fit the theme of the photo - this was a late winter walk after all! - so instead I settled on some gorgeous Prima leaves and a piece of vine to keep with the sparse forest in the photo.
 The letters are by BoBunny and I inked the edges with gathered twigs distress ink.
 I love these Prima vines, they look so amazing on their own and with other flowers!
 I kept my journalling simple and added some chit chat stickers from Tim Holtz and the word "woods" was created with Webster's Pages stickers.
 I added another piece of vine above the photos trailing off the page to balance the greenery at the bottom of the page.
 I hope you like it and thanks for looking! x
