Amazing Scrap Race Week #1!

The fun has begun at Life Preservers, with the latest contest called "The Amazing Scrap Race"! We have already been given tricky questions regarding a mysterious destination. It took me two tries to get that one right! Then, we were given a photo and layout assignment. Many completed both of these within the first deadline. There are seven more weeks to go, with many surprises in store!! Here was my scrappy assignment, which was to use distressing on a layout.

I took the term "distressing" to the extreme, using a peeled paper technique from Claudine Hellmuth's book "Collage Discovery Workshop". This is a great resource for altered artists and paper crafters.
