It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived. Helen Walton

This was an experiment a few weeks ago using matt board as the base.
Part of it was discovering if I could texturize regular paper like I do yupo.
The answer is yes.  The base textured color here is blue, texturized with a dry cleaner bag.
The rest was done with stencils, just like I do on the yupo.  It is hard to see here but I was pleased that the background texture under the white, beige and grey shows quite well.

This is my "dump" from last week

 And here it is this week.  Sorry for the shadow on the left side. 
Knowing I will be otherwise occupied for the next couple of weeks,
I want to wish all of my friends on PPF a very Happy Holiday Season.
I will see you after the New Year.

Ooops, I forgot to share the latest bloom on my lanai

This is a purple vanda orchid
