Both were prepared with mod podge, both were painted and stamped, and yes I hated both. Both got the cut out paper treatment . The cuts were randomly done on the paper, so the holes are different shapes. The patterns that I drew inside and around the holes are also different, but the two pages flow well together.
In the beginning I hated these pages, but by adding the paper and patterns in and around the holes, the pages have been brought to life.
