Echo Park layout

Good afternoon all,

This is my second post for today and it is a layout.  The layout i promised to show you on Friday and forgot to post! If you want to see my 'baby girl' card for today, please scroll down. 

As for the layout, i actually made it whilst i was attending Iris Babao UY's workshop last week.  I must admit, when i first saw this, gesso/ripped muslin technique i had my reservations.  It is nothing like my 'normal' style but hey ho, i gave it a go and it has grown on me! lol  It is great to share techniques and learn from others and i sure did learn a few new tricks of the trade.   I love this Echo Park paper collection too, it is ideal for masculine layouts. 

What do you think? Would love to hear your comments...
