I first painted one page with Burnt Umber acrylic paint on both sides.
Then I trimmed a piece of G45 Typography paper to 4-1/2" x 5-1/2" and heavily distressed the edges. I further distressed the edges with Vintage Photo distress stain. I like to use the stain because it softens the edges and absorbs the color better. I used a small round stick to curl two of the edges. Then I adhered this piece to the page.
Next, I used Creative Paperclay® to make my copy. First, I placed small pieces of the paperclay into the tight spots along the sides, as shown.
I found this scrap of mesh material in my stash, so I trimmed it to size and adhered it to my page with scor-tape, or similar double-sided adhesive.

Composi•mold. As I said before, this is so easy to use and lots of fun. I hope you will give it a try. Be sure to pop on over to the SCS Store to see all the new products and the SCS Blog for tons of inspiration.
