These papers are detailed and strong. So much so that they are hard to work with. Pretty much they are accent papers for borders, frames, and spot elements. If you plop a photo, even with a mat, it will be lost in the business. I loved the variety and talked myself into it. Now I wish some of the less interesting designs were eliminated, and coordinated plain papers were provided. I'll be trying gesso on some to drop back the overwhelming patterns -- I think a misty-white, as well as a mysterious black, would work. The right antique brown would age and soft the hard lines. When I have to do this kind of work I realize this isn't the best paper for me.
I love these versatile papers used as a block, or cut apart to showcase their individual beauty! I made a gable card right away and was really pleased with how it came out, using these prints, and some flowers I bought at the same time.
