Several thoughts ran through my mind, NOT TOO LARGE, NOT TOO SMALL, JUST RIGHT! - that's right I felt like Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Reading the packet, there are 12 pages, perfect for a year... looking better and better. Not too much room to fill up, but enough to make it interesting.
Here's what I saw:
Looks interesting with lots of possibilities, right?
Here's what I did:
I colored the grunge paper with Alcohol Inks in a free style. Taking the alcohol ink applicator in one hand, I squirted the ink in the other hand onto the felt and sponged the ink on the grunge paper.
First I applied Eggplant, then Cranberry and I loved the look of texture this gave my project. I thought metallic and grabbed the copper, dabbed on copper and let the paper dry. I wanted you to see the vibrancy of the colors as well as what the light and dark of the colors achieved.
I took the rings out of the bag and Voila. The first page is finished. I may add additional papers, perhaps just plain card stock to save something I don't want to lose, but I definitely want to save the sponsor pages. It's our first year and I just have to have something solid in my hands.

Wait until you see what Hannah has in store for you in June!
