Layering, Layering and more Layering!
by Lindsey Krauss

Here is a little how-to on my layering steps for the layout, "SNOW". Tips: use many mediums, lots of textures, literally layer and don't be afraid to scrap messy. Old supplies mixed with new add depth and dimesion, as well as visual interest.
Lastly, work your edges!

Step one:
Ink select edges of base papers.
Step two:
Use edge scraper on next level up, then ink only the back of the side opposite the photo. This can suggest a nice shadow behind it.
Step three:
Punch holes/set eyelets in the shadowed level strip.
Step four:
Layer pieces without adhering.
Step five:
Add sticker borders as another medium, texture and layer.

Step six:
Add photo and ribbon, adhere all layers thus far. Pull up sides of eyeletted level and leave rough.

Step seven:
Doodle along border edges for yet another layer suggestion.

Step eight:
Doodle edges - just for fun!

Step nine:
Add journaling:

Step ten:
Add sticker letters, using realistic images can promote even more depth. Add paper flakes/flowers and a brad to build the layers right there.

Step eleven:
