photo one is made with distress stains and acrylics. I used a brayer and added gesso to give it stregnth. Tim Holtz photo wheels are used in the back ground with black foil placed in each window.
The digi set Specimen Jar was used  colored in pencil a strand of leather attached to the side with two crystles and the border is hand sewn.
