JOURNALING: One of my favorite places was the Tower of London. We enjoyed our tour with the Yoeman guard and of course had to visit the Traitors Gate.

TECHNIQUE TIP: There were a couple of things I did to this layout to give it some more texture and dimension. I started out with two sheets of manilla background but decided that it looked too plain. I took my rhubarb ink and my Sanded stamp to create a texture on those two background sheets. The second thing was to cut my alpha from Tim Holtz' Coordination kraft core cardstock. I then embossed them with my Sizzix and then sanded them down to get the dots to show through.
