You didn't burn part of this did you?
It's groovy. I always want to try all your techniques. Still haven't worked on hands yet. After I finish a swap project tonight, I'm going to try to get the burnt,rusty color/texture.

I love that layered pie of paper on billboards.. Have been known to take it home. Last time I tried to surreptitiously snatch some, a giant chunk fell off and I blew my cover...

These is a wonderful page Seth! I love the scratched surfaces, the tearing and the staining. Your design is also, as usual, incredible... Roxanne
Oh, and I forgot to thank you for the leaves!
