If you have two loaves of bread sell one and buy flowers. For although the bread will nourish your body, the flowers will nourish your soul.

Do-It-Yourself Designer Paper

The challenge issued for Monday, October 6 was to create your own patterned paper and use a fall theme. The floral paper was created using the flower from SU's Carte Postale, colored with rust and artichoke markers. The stripe was done with those two colors, plus mellow moss. I just did it freehand using a straightedge, no measuring. I finisheded each stripe grouping with a fine line of chocolate chip. All three panels were topped off with linen stamped in river rock. It's nice to know if you need patterned paper and do not have the right colors, you can just make your own.

Recipe: stamps- Carte Postale, Linen, and Simple Sayings II (all SU); Paper- always artichoke, chocolate chip, off-white; Ink- chocolate chip, river rock; Accessories- Cuttlebug, SU markers, brads, Prima flowers.

Lovely Deb. I like the embossed BG and the other DP papers you used to support your image, which is beautiful!
