No Stone Unturned

We are doing a trade on SurfaceDesign where you create something influenced by a Jan and Jean technique. I was thumbing through books and came across "No Stone Unturned". There are a lot of great ideas in there. I built up many layers experimenting. And, I also used my MistyFuse embossing technique this works great. In their book they talk about adding demensional paints but you have to wait for these to dry. But, with my method, instant gratification. I also zapped some felt and added layers of cheese cloth. I layered each layer with MF and really made it easier to layer. It's not quite a stone..but I love the surface.

BTW, for those of you who don't know, two of their new books just came out!
