I felt really 'free' with this template and just played.
I used one backing paper (a ledger sheet).
Instead of more strips or layers of backing papers, I used oil based pastels and smudged them.
It really was great fun.
It doesn't look quite so bare in real life as it does in the photo - mainly because you can see the light shading of the smudged pastels and lines and columns of the ledger page.
These templates are really good fun and so very challenging - well they are to me!
And maybe at a later stage I will have something more to write about!
