A Trip to Banff

This summer, my daughter and I needed to get away and relax, so we decided to go to Banff for the weekend.  (We are very fortunate that we live not far from one of the most beautiful parks in Canada.)

I used some of the photos from that trip, in this layout for the November Swirlydoos round robin challenge.  Jan challenged us to make it a multi-photo layout and use specialty papers.  In addition, we were to make a flower from them.
I added the tissue paper to the background with mod podge and misted it.
Then I made the top left hand flower out of tissue paper following Tim Holtz’s tutorial.
We were also to use a rub-on in a new way, so I added the little black flowers to the letters in “you”.
I had just got a new mask that I wanted to try, and it seemed to fit the photos, so I used it in the background.  I stencilled it with molding paste that was mixed with some cool artist pigments called “Primary Elements” by Luminarte, in a Bolivian Blue colour.  (It was stepping outside my “comfort zone” to do the tree in blue, lol, but I ended up loving it.)
Banff is very beautiful, and is only an hour’s drive from Calgary.  If you’re ever in Alberta visiting, you really MUST go to Banff!
