Moving into the Third Dimension

Coming previously from a card maker and scrap booker background; I designed my layouts within two dimensions. Even through I was used to matting and layering, or adding texture and elements, I still had a  steep learning curve moving to a true mixed media canvas.

Deciding on a feature item is always the fun part. for this canvas  decided to raid my kitchen drawer and found an old Apostle spoon. Who remembers them? tiny little teaspoons with a figure of a saint or apostle at the top. It must have been inherited from my grandmas kitchen.

Once I decided to feature the spoon, then it was a case of layering any dry placing all elements around it.
