A short while ago I showed you a video of how I made a background paper using pencil shavings and my colour home photocopier.
Well this is a page layout made using the resulting background paper. You may notice that it is an A4 sized layout. I just thought it worked this way, what with the brwn background paper and the big word "Smile" - which I didn't want to lose.
So although the homemade "shavings" paper did actually come out around 8x10" I trimmed it to fit, I thought 12x12 would be to big.
Of course, the background paper already being lined, rather leant itself to direct written journaling... always a bit nerve wracking when you've done the whole of the rest of the page!
What it IS though, whichever you decide, is a multi-photo page layout!
