This layout was from my 2008 Runner's Up MMM entry. TFL!
I used a section from a clear vellum shopping bag with large white polka dots on the lower half of my layout.
I crocheted some simple circles out of "chocolate" brown cotton to add texture.
I used a tinted acrylic alphabet for the title. I sanded some of the color away to add some texture and added a brown outline to help the title pop a little more.
