 Hello everyone,

Wednesday today and time for another challenge over at LITTLE RED WAGON  and JanR is hostess again this week and this time her theme is "LAYER UPON LAYER - at least 3 layers..

I know it sounds intimidating, but it isn't, a flower can be a layer, stickers, ephemera , papers, inks they are all layers, so give it a whirl and come over and play with any project you like, not just cards...

I started with papers and an odd strip of stripes down the side, then a stencil.

The modelling paste, love this stuff, don't use it enough.

When that was dry I sprayed it with distress inks..

inside and out..

inside glued down..

Now a penny farthing but I wanted a man on it, so printed one out, hoped the size was right, fussy cut him.. 

Onto his bike.. have you been counting the layers ??

This strip of paper was from same paper pad, just cut it and stuck it..
and added some die cut cogs, that were inked.

After all those layers and things, it is not dimensional at all..

And here we are all done..

So, bring your layers and come play.

Pop quiz, how many layers did I achieve?

Thank you so much for stopping by..
I'll see you tomorrow..


9 was the answer, well done..
