This time, for texture, I creased the strips of paper at different angles and inked the creases.
To the left of the photo, I cut and stacked several blocks of paper scraps and scattered some dew drops around. Journalling lines created with black thread in backstitches.

Don't you love mists? I mean the scrapping kind!
