If I have ever created a masterpiece, this is it. If I have ever loved a layout, this one is it. If someone asks me what is my scrapping style, I will point to this layout.
A couple of weeks ago, I got my hands on the two latest collections by Collage Press. I didn't go cheap, I got everything. Rolling in the incredible papers, I found this sheet. It may not to you, but it screams Chinese to me. The red and the patterns seem to "fit" but it's the side with the numbers and grids that remind me of Chinese writing practice books. School children learn to pen Chinese characters in a grid format, so one knows, approximately where the strokes fall.
And of course, I would have in my stash, these letters that fit perfectly, size-wise, onto these Collage Press 田字格 :) How exciting it is, when I find paper that represents the subject matter so well, in such an unlikely collection. And the representation is so subtle, if it weren't for me explaining it to death here, who would really know?
