Quick Tip for Defining a Lengthy Journaling Area

I created this layout (with the "Object of My Affection" kit + alphas from the "Seaside Cottage" kit) for the Lean On Me Challenge. I knew when I was making it that I would need a longer area for journaling, but I didn't want anything that interfered with the soft colors of my design.

"Notebook paper?" I thought. "Nah."

"Paint?" I mused. "Meh. Don't feel like messing with washing up."

"Ooooh! Masking tape! Dimension, texture, soft color, easing to apply- perfect!"

(Don't worry. I don't talk to myself like that. Much. I promise. hee hee!)
