This collage is for 'Wednesday Stamper'. The challenge this week is 'polka dots'. To have some polka dots I had to get creative. I took a sheet of notebook hole 're-enforcers' and used the openings for a stencil. The background is sponged with various colors. I used a swirl stamp and the compass stamp from 'Above the Mark'. As you can see, I used some clip art and a strip of vellum along with part of a page from a dictionary. I was tempted to put for the text...'east, west, first try is best'..smile.

This is a neat piece. Can't believe you used a notebook reinforcer to make your dots. What a cool idea but wasn't it a frustrating process? Nice piece in the end, though.
