Stamped & Ready!


Yay! Project 1, Background Papers, complete! Well, complete for me. If I were to follow the instructions exactly, I would print lists and goals on these beautiful papers, but I'm a computer list person. I do plan to scan my pages, though ... just in case.

My designs are mostly random and are not necessarily meant for use as a whole sheet, but rather torn pieces here and there. I was being very critical of my work (playing the comparison game, to be honest), but I went to read the post from Shona's site on Background Paper Decorating and, fortunately, Step #8 told me just what I needed to hear ... "Stamp the pages randomly, working again in that conveyor belt way. I don't worry what they look like, these will be torn or cut up for use in collage projects. They are not meant to be finished works of art!". Thanks, Shona, I needed that!
