Scrapbooking - Delphi 1

This is from our trip to Delphi in Greece. First i started with a sheet of cardboard, that i took from a box, I ripped off the top layer to expose the corigated cardboard underneath.  I then sprayed it with glimmer mist, a green, brown and mustard.  This was to give the base some colour.  I then rolled up a piece of left over cardboard and glued it closed.  I wrapped a piece of leaf  ribbon around it all the way down (thats the dark brown) the cardboard strip.  I cut out some spellbinders leaves and inked them with different chalk inks, glimmer mist and airondack inks.  This game me a few different shades of leaves.  I then glued them around the cardboard strip.  I used a Scarpfx window to draw attention to one of the photos, I sprayed the frame with glimmer mist brown.  I used a few flowers that i punched from cream card to the top underneath of the window.   I mounted the other photo on brown bazil cardstock.  From the Tim Holtz spellbinders I cut out the sign, from the same card,  which I added my Title, i used brads and chain to make it look like it was hanging.  At this stage i was a little disappointed how flat the layout was, so i added the lime green flowers, brown flowers and a cream spotted prima marketing flower.  I cut out a couple of clocks from kaiser paper, just to give the page a lift.
