Playing with Webster's pages again......

Somehow I feel like I have written this title before....
In the spirit of using up my stash...
(my goal this year)
here is another layout using up my Webster's pages...
I think I am in a rut with these papers
all I seem to do is distress them then slap some corrugated cardboard and acrylic paint
for added grunginess
am I subconsciously trying to destroy these beautiful papers???
I wonder...
I admit I dont have a clue how to use them
I am creatively clueless
I am up for suggestions
dear scrappers!!!!

Webster's pages Your Life, Beautiful
Bazzill cardstock teal?
Corrugated card board
Chandelier chipboard (given to me by Zeffy...thank you)
Tim Holtz distress crackle paint tattered rose
flowers Prima and I am Roses
