Well . . .that was then, this is now. I am more than happy to share something with you today. I actually took the time to scan a few 12x12 pages I created sometime ago. The three I will share here demonstrate the use of simple designed paper with little embellishment. The extras I added are simple and mostly consist of cutting portions of the already existing designs from the paper and moving it elsewhere on the page or tucking something (like a photo) under part of it.
I remember cutting paper dolls at a young age. During the hours spent cutting paper as a child I had pondered the significance of the task I was doing. Despite the fact that I really did not like to play 'paper dolls' I was very neat and perticular with the task of cutting. As I cut the intricate designs from my scrapbook papers as an adult I am reminded of the same kind of 'play' as a little girl. That remembrance always brings a smile to my face.
