This I have learned. The hard way.
And I'm sure it only gets worse from here.
Sorry that I keep bringing it up, but I did this LO for another "class" over at My Scrapbook Nook. So far, I've completed all the assignments and I'm walking away with LOs I adore (if I do say so myself). This one was for the History class, which was to create a shabby chic LO including a list of classic shabby items or techniques. Here are some close ups of all the dimension, texture, and odds and ends I added just for fun.
