The reverse page done – I think it worked….

So I finished the reverse. I think the flipped edges worked pretty well, and I think it’s perfect for a page where you want to totally hide your journaling, as you can do all the writing then fold the edge over it.  Sneaky, humm?

I flipped the edges from the book-paper coverage of the reverse back to this side.  I thought about leaving the edges as they were, and that is certainly an option, but instead I used an old curved ruler to mark and trim for a more decorative border

Then I inked that border – I liked it plain but I liked it better inked.

I did the lettering and that was here it all went wrong.  I stamped the text but the shading and decorating just didn’t live up to my expectations.  Live and learn – don’t run before you can walk…or letter LOL!

Any excuse to  use some of my mad old stamps

Most def. something I will do again.

Now to those who commented or emailed me asking about the WOYWW ATC backs – yes, I will pop another set without the WOYWW info on it for you, probably tomorrow – if not then, on Saturday when I am off at the Card Marathon. Hopefully I won’t be a bad student – I never can seem to follow instructions and sometimes my I wonder if…? process is just not appropriate.

Such  lovely day – too lovely for sitting in awaiting a delivery…
