This layout was made using the latest kit by Life Preservers, and includes products by Scrap Within Reach (Cambridge). The papers are very regal and masculine in feel. I took these photos on a recent trip to the Santa Barbara Mission for a retreat. The location is so stunning, it's actually difficult to get a bad photo of the place! I used an image transfer technique to place the image of Father Junipero Serra, who was one of the major founders of the California missions. He died after securing the site for this mission, which is known as the "Queen" of the missions. In California, all the school kids study the missions and are required to do a project and paper on one of them, and I am fascinated by their history. This particular mission is breathtakingly beautiful, and is still held by the Franciscans. The area surrounding it is covered by rose gardens and mult-million dollar homes. If you are ever in the area, I strongly urge you to visit!
For more information on the image transfer technique, stay tuned for a class coming next week at LPS!!
