MTTC #478 Theme is Technique Formatting of 3 or more Layers

 MTTC #478 Lots of Layers Theme--a minimum of 3

March 25-April 7, 2022

This is not a topic theme. It is a technique or format requirement. Show us your digital, hybrid, or handmade paper-crafted creations using 3 or more layers. It can be the papers. It can be dimensional layered embellishments. Or it can be a combination of papers and embellishments. But it needs to be noticeably obvious in your blog's main photo that there are 3 layers or more. 

DT inspiration projects for #478

Thanks so much to our world-wide design team for finding time to craft marvelous layered creations!
