Layered Horizon/Landscape

Want to create your own scenic background for your page? Here is a technique by Becky Eldenburg in which she creates horizons.

After looking at the background elements in the photo, select the shades of cardstock you will be working with.

Begin working at the bottom of the page. Tear the cardstock into strips showing the white edge. Be sure to lay the largest strip down first aligning it with the edge of your page.

Continue "stacking" the torn strips so the smaller strip is on top until you have acheived the desired look.

For an added effect, you can also lightly ink the torn, white edge.

This technique can be used to create a beach, sand dunes, sunrise/sunset, forest floor, etc..... It all just depends on your cardstock selection, form of tearing and your imagination!
