|Me at Tikal, Guatemala in 1992|
In 1992 I took an archaeology field course that took place in Belize. On one of our weekends off we went to Guatemala to visit the Mayan site of Tikal. In the photo I am standing on the platform of Temple II with Temple I in the background.
For this layout, I used a piece of 7 Dots Studio paper.
|7 Dots Studio|
Dreamscapes - Narwhal
I did some stenciling on the background with Hickory Smoke Distress Ink using a Clarity stencil brush.
I also did some stamping with Tea Dye Distress Ink around the edges of the paper.
Butterfly Garden - Impressions
And some sporadic punching around the outer edge as well.
These are the chipboard pieces I used:
Geo Triangular Border
Romance - Ramka / Szyld
I embossed all the chipboard pieces with Stampendous Aged Ochre embossing powder and lightly brushed some green paint overtop to grunge them up a bit.
The fern leaves and berries are by 49 and Market, the other leaves and flowers are by Petaloo.
I cut out a piece of Mayan pottery from a photo I took and tucked it into the lower left flower cluster.
Thank you so much for taking a look!
