Crusade No. 28 Portion Control

I stopped over at Michelle Wards GPP Street Team blog to see what the current challenge was and was happy to see that the topic of Crusade 28 was Portion Control. ( Go check it out to see what it's all about.) I knew I had to do this one because I have a terrible time covering up anything in my artwork if I like the way it looks. This was a great way to push myself outside my comfort zone into using a new technique.



Here are two journal pages I made for the challenge. Stop over at the blog to read about this challenge and all the other great challenges Michelle has posted to the blog.



I love the way my pages turned out. Next time I will try to cover up more of my stamped and stenciled images then I did in this challenge. I have to take baby steps.


Thanks Michelle for a great challenge!

Arlene, yay you! I love that you're being so kind to yourself and admitting baby steps (micromovements) is good for you! That is so true, and a new technique can be used FOR EVER! Isn't that cool? :-)
