When i was going thru the photos
and i saw this one, i knew right away
how the LO is going to look like ! :o))

The background paper is My Mind's Eye
life stories "Frequency Grid"paper.
The second layer is Bazil's white cardstock
which i distressed by hand and with some
distress ink (tea dye).
The 3rd layer is a jute sack that my boys
brought me from their grandpa's warehouse.
I cut it to the right size and unraveled some fringes all around.
The photo matting is mad of three layers.

The white one is an architect's thick parchment ,
which i distressed with a ruler.
The other two layers are from a take away 
brown bag, that were also torn with a ruler
and distressed with the same ink.
At the left corner i add a wooden element 
and left it in its natural color.
The letters "S" for sister and "B" for brother
are Tim Holtz's "GRUNGEBOARD".

I colored them with GESSO and acrylic paint.
I stamped the letters on them to complete  the words
"sister & brother" and finally put some  diamond glazed.
The gorgeous flowers are hand made, 
and i learned to make them from a super talented friend
ANAT - go and check her tutorial on her blog !

The two white flowers are made of white baking paper
distressed with a "tea dye" ink,
but the greenish one is made of brown silk paper 
which i found in a shoe  box, and distressed with a green ink.
I just fell in love with these flowers :o))!!

This is beyond fabulous. I LOVE all the layers and how you created each one differently. How terrific that you also used a piece of a jute sack. Great job on the one color challenge. So happy you could have some fun with us this week at Pile it On.
