I've just started art journaling, and normally I'm very careful and precise (I'm a bit of a perfectionist), so I'm using it to give myself permission to play, and be messy, and if I don't like...

Thank you so much for your thoughts, Sabrina & Kristen! I want to try this card again, and I will definitely go for a stronger, darker mat.

Thank you, Elizabeth! I think you're right, a stronger mat would really help set off the sponged panel. I really like the idea of tiny brads or beads at the corners of that panel, as well. Thank you...
