Take on Me: the Undones

I like to blog about projects that aren't quite done.  Maybe they need some journaling, or photos or a complete overhaul.  I call them "the Undones" and I have a box full of good intentions - literally! In this series, I pick a project, finish it and share the results. I'd love it if you would play along and share a link to your newly finished project in the comments.

Time to share the second page I made in Sara's Yearlong class in February. You can see the first page here. It's really interesting (at least to me) how 2 pages can start in the same place and end up looking completely different.

In class, we used the Balzer Designs Diamond stencil and black Archival ink to create the border. I added some Studio Calico Mister Huey Clay mist and Twinkling H20 splats and some stamps.

The patterned papers are from the For the Record - "Tailored" Collection by Echo Park and are part of the class kit. Except the hearts - those are from the 6x6 paper pad from Maggie Holmes' collection. I made them at home by spraying the music note paper with the Dylusions Post Box Red and punching out the hearts.

From my stash, I added the Thickers, the Mini Market stickers and all the other little bits and pieces. I have to be honest, that title took quite a bit of fiddling and adjusting.

And in a little stash bashing action, I used my KP wood mounted stamp, which I won when Kelly Purkey visited The Paperie a few weeks back. I love that sentiment and like to use it. (You can see it on another page, here) I figure the only way to get better at using the stamps in my stash is to use the stamps in my stash. Pure genius, right? Right!

And that's another page from the Undone pile, my friends. It doesn't take much time or effort to finish a page. The hard part, at least for me, is choosing to finish a page. Once I make the choice, the rest seems to fall in place.

Now it's your turn, grab a page or project or card and finish it off. Then share it! Put it in a gallery or on your blog and then link me up. I'd love to see.

Thanks for stopping by!
