I find that I enjoy the technique of Glimmer Mist spray. For this page I used a pre-cut diecut piece of paper as a full-page stencil. I used bits of doublesided tape to hold it on my page and then applied Glimmer Mist.
I knew that I was going to add the photo across the center so I concentrated the spray above and below where the photo would be placed.
The photo was created by using the Photomerge feature in Photoshop and "stitching" three photos together to create the panoramic shot.
