I do collage and art journaling, not Prima's market. Nevertheless, I picked this up on Black Friday because some of the images are hard to find. I have a personal thing about blue roses, so I scored with that. The almost ugly black line-ish thing at the top of the product photo reads like low quality Italian marbled paper which is great clean grunge. Some of the watercolor line things are good for those days when I don't want to make my own or am traveling. I even like one of the freeform dash backgrounds.
Alas, there was only one sentiment that resonated. The worst part is there are 3 of each design. Patterns without words are far easier to repeat. A saying in pocket journaling needs to wait before being used again. Also, sentiments are boring on the same background every time. Stamps allow more creativity. If Prima had done two with the same words and left one blank, this would be a much better set.
Personally, this was not a good buy for me. For many, the repeates will end up in a box somewhere as money spent and not used. If you're one of these collectors, please donate or gift them to an artist friend. I have a thrift store that gets a box from me now and then. Mail art swaps work, too.
