Step 1. Start with your Background! tear strips of washi tape & attach to grey Cardstock. Then spray with some Yellow, Orange & light blue spray using the Studio Calico – bubbles mask, then smear over lightly with some gesso.  With some black ink & randomly stamp your background. (As shown)

Step 2. Cut the bottom strips off both BG Serenade papers & set aside, then tear 2 strips from the side of riding habit paper (the strip side) ink edges in black & attach. Tear a 16cmx13.5cm rectangle from BG Serenade reverse side of riding habit paper ink the edges in black & attach.
