I've been thinking. I was somewhat unhappy with the last few pages I've posted here and on Flickr, but I couldn't put my finger on why. I've been looking at them, feeling them... looking some more... I've finally got it. None of the pages have ink around the edges. Yes, it's something that I do to 99% of my scrapbook pages as well... I guess it's part of my style.
I will upload some afters in the morning, see if you agree.
