Authentique "Journey" Page:
*White & Gray ribbon
*Brown and Gray Cardstock
I used the Authentique "blissful" line that I picked up at Legacy Paper Arts last weekend. I am IN LOVE with Authentique, they have great patterns and the colors are always perfect with a hint of grunge look to it.
Authentique paper is also extra awesome because they are the only company (that I know of) that you can literally split their paper into 2 pieces and can use both sides of the double sided paper. Seriously, how awesome is that?? Check Out how to do this on the Authentique Blog and also on Tiffany's Blog.
Other Materials used for this layout are Prima Flowers, and liquid pearls. Tip on the liquid pearls for those of you who are in love with Copic Markers as much as I am-- Stock up on clear/white liquid pearls, after your pearl has dried just color over it with a copic marker to match your page! (I will do a specific post on this technique next week).
