The Art is Found: Green Grass

How did I spend my Earth Day? Well, I made this page (among other things) for a challenge at The Art is Found. The prompt is green grass.

I challenged myself to use only scrap paper, which made my husband Jake super happy, because he's always telling me that it's called SCRAPbooking for a reason. This is because I have a spending problem. Don't we all? Anyway, using scraps is a great way to use your stash. I try to check my scrap box before I cut into a new sheet of paper, but creating with nothing but scraps was challenging. I kept having to repeat to myself that it doesn't matter that the greens don't match perfectly...
