i am also trying to use up some of the patterned papers i have been hoarding. i began by layering the background with some text washi tape i bought in singapore, layered with a white wash of gesso and then began simply tearing bits of patterned to make a garden. i then added some scissor cut stems and more of those tiny orange alphabet stickers (why do i have so many of those?).
