Studio J members only. I love its spunk and find so many uses for the numbers and simple black and white crossword paper. Because I was planning my journalling over the pattern paper on the second page, I wanted something a little more neutral but comparable to the look of the crossword, so it would match the photos. I found a fix in the green colored plaid background and texture paper. Now, I didn't want green in all my black white and red photos, so I changed the color of the pattern paper to black and voila! A perfect complement to my black cardstock base and Cranberry accents, and it's still light enough for the journalling to be legible. This feature is one of the things I love about Studio J and why I think it makes it such a versatile tool for anybody with any level of skills. In fact, you can read a quick how-to on the Studio J blog here.
