I gessoed, painted, misted and really played with a piece of white cardstock to make the fun background. I love it. Then after adding some cardstock, I cut out some of the pics from the cardstock to overlap as embellies. It was all super easy and fun....until I decided to try to use Rub-ons for the Shel Silverstein poem journaling. Let's just say, I renewed my displeasure for rub-ons.
