Step 2- Tear strips of ‘Engineer’ paper and adhere under a torn piece of ‘draftsman’ as pictures. Distress edges of paper prior to adhering


Step 3- Using a border edge punch, create two 12×1 inch stripsof ‘architect’ and adhere on top of ‘draftsman’


Step 4- Distress the edges of your photos and adhere in a line


Step 5- using the ‘Word and alphabet’ stickers,create a subtitle and the beginnings of a cluster


Step6- Wrap the twine  around the layout a few times and tie off, then tie on a ‘trinket’


Finally- cluster on your flowers and a few more buttons and tiles. Title with the thickers (I have sanded them slightly for a worn effect)
