Thought I would try a couple of techniques I have never attempted before. The Gesso Off technique is from the August 09 issue and the Faux Punched Border technique is from this month's issue (Aug/Sept 2012). Both techniques are fun and easy. The purple dotted ribbon is much darker IRL and matches the B/G paper perfectly, Not so in the photo. Oh well, you get the idea.
I hope you all had a lovely weekend. Wishing you a productive and creative week!
