Journaling Tips 2 - Direct to Page

Continuing with our journaling theme, today's page shows journaling that was printed directly to the background page before pictures and embellishments were added.  Note that you do NOT have to just print in black!  Here I chose a brown for the journaling to tie everything together better. Clearly this technique may work best for 8x8 or 8.5 x 11 sizes.  Unless you have a wide body printer like I do, you will not be able to print directly to a 12 x 12 background page.  Next week we'll look at a technique for getting around this limitation for your 12 x 12 pages. The tags were pre-printed from Hot Off the Press (and I think the background paper was theirs too).  The title was cut with my Silhouette.
