These are the bomb! The colors of the core are beautiful, using a texture plate or template to emboss details then sand to expose the core. Wet and "scrunch" to distress and loosen the paper fibers and then sand to reveal the color... whatever you do you will be pleased with the results!
I purchased white wash paper by the sheet and have found it is a great solution for journaling. Sometimes you don't want a white background, but plain white is boring. This was a perfect solution because you can sand or tear the edges giving a great color on the edges and a hint of the color comes through behind the white as well.
