I stamped this dog image on white cardstock and cut it out for an embellishment

Same with this dog
The first "thing" that attracted me to scrap booking in 2002 were the incredible papers available. The depth of color, the patterns, were so unique to me. Now I believe that that appreciation of color is what brought me to mixed media, gel plate printing, and art journaling. In the first photo above, look at the play of muted shades in that paper. It is stunning. After rediscovering this sheet in my stash, I immediately pulled it out to use.

Now. NOW I want to recreate that on the gel plate. Or in an art journal. I have owned that sheet for at least 14 years. And it has finally inspired me, twice.

I am nuts.
