This layout is paper based with a simple easy technique. I started the layout with a circles mask gesso and a little distress ink. I first used the gesso and then the ink to create a continuation in the pattern of the circles. I hit set it to dry the gesso and then puffed some of the gesso with the hit gun.
I then layered paper and paper tags to create dimension as well as different fussy cutting shapes.
Finally I created different sizes of paper flowers and gave them a little more dimension with small touches of gesso around the edges.
