First I tore large sections from a sheet of scrapbook paper. It was a brown paper with copper hexagons. The brown paper really drove this layout, which is ironic because I used so much paint that it almost doesn't show. Only the shiny copper really comes through. That's a shame because it was wonderful paper.
Because I was being Brave. I wanted to do something different to add interest to the page. I took my largest mica tile and split it into two pieces so that I could have the same shape on each side of the layout. The "Be Brave" tile has the yellow paint on the back and the words and my thumbprint on the top. The "Take A Chance" tile has the yellow paint on top so it's not as shiny. Both tiles were attached with Helmar 450 glue.
So this is my page. There is a lot going on and it is different than anything I've ever created. I like it for that reason alone! One more step along the new creative path I'm taking. I hope you like it.
