I'd started creating a page for a recipe about a year ago, and hadn't finished it.
I decided to cut out the pieces and collage them into a page, and that a brown paper shopping bag would be the perfect background.
The nice thing about this approach, is that you can play with the arrangement on your page, before you glue the pieces down.
