Helen & Nina at It’s Crafting Time recently sent me the Tim Holtz mini compass mask to play with, this is what I did with it!

I spread a thin layer of gesso over the paper, (TH idea-ology Destination range), blotted it with a paper towel to dry then placed the mask randomly on the page misting with Adirondack Color Wash, in Denim, then with Perfect Pearls mist, Perfect Copper. Using a blending tool I added some Distress Ink, Fired Brick.

Then I started layering.
A page torn from a vintage French schoolbook, over that, two photographs of the schooner Peacemaker, which I took when she was docked in Savannah, Georgia, 2010.
Then a variety of embellishments from stash.
To finish the layout I stamped “The Journey awakens the Soul” & flying birds using Archival Ink, Jet Black.
