Strip Ease

The July Challenge over at the GPP Street Team is Strip Ease, where you are encouraged to tear your paper or fabric into strips and attach to your page.

Although I enjoyed the tearing part, I made the mistake of gluing them all down and covering them with glossy acrylic medium, which restricted what I could do afterwards.  I'm not sure I like the way this came out, and I was very tempted to "Photoshop" it.  (Yeah, that's become a verb I think.)

But my kind and encouraging sister said it was perfect, so here it is!

GPP Street Team Challenge 42

Go on, give it a try!  I dare ya!

  3. Susan, I agree with the girls - looks good, or make that Great! Love the colors. Love the black images collaged onto it. Bravo! Shake off that self-criticalness :) Thanks for sharing with the team.

    I think Photoshop is a verb too.

  10. Your sister is right--it IS perfect. But as Rainer Maria Rilke said, "No emotion is ever final," so if you want to morph it into something else, you can still do that.

  11. I think your pages are lovely too, and the colour really appeals to me (as does your font colour for that matter).

  18. To Photoshop or not to Photoshop ... that's the question ;-) In this case I would say not, because the pages are just perfect like this. You did a great job !
