Melissa - terrific page! I love that you showed *before*, as well as *after*. You've claimed it, it's yours! Thanks for sharing with the team.

I love this paper... and am lucky you are such a good "sharer"!! xo

What a find, and very cool what you have done with it. But you know, I don't remember the wallpaper in Nana's house - might ask Mum if she remembers...got me curious now!

What a terrific post Melissa! You surely made this your own. Love the wallpaper background - it's beautiful before and after! WOW!

I enjoyed hearing about your process. Lovely pages!!!

You did a great job making the vintage paper your own in this piece, Melissa. I agree that the gesso-softened images make a great background for your "doodly" journaling. I am reading "Life is A Verb" also and loving it so very much. I am lucky enough to being going to see Patti Digh read from the book on June 2, in Deerfield, NH. Can't wait ! The book has brought me and so many other readers so much ! Enjoy !
Cheers, Crusader !

very nice, love the dreamy quality

haha Fooled them, indeed!! Beautiful pages. =)

How fun! I want some vintage wall paper to play with too. What an inspiring post, thank you. Very well done, I think your page turned out great!

Lovely spread. You're right, it is so much more interesting with the wallpaper peeking through.

Love what you did with the vintage wallpaper, and nope, I doubt anyone could've begun to imagine what you have done with it! Crazy? NO WAY! Very clever and very creative... really nice work, thanks for sharing it with us!

How beautiful! I hope you're enjoying Life is a Verb - I would love to post the photos on my website, 37days, if that would be okay with you? - patti digh
