SOLVE THIS MYSTERY

A few days ago, I experienced something of a creative breakthrough. And I'm so glad I did! 

Totally out of the blue, I had this glorious idea. The timing wasn't great, however. I was scheduled to work some long days, and was unable to get down to my Creation Station to give my great idea a try until several days after the initial breakthrough. 

When I finally got the chance to bring this little seedling of an idea to fruition, I had a blast! Following are eight samples of the backgrounds I created:

What do you think? Do you like them?

Now, here is where you come in. I'd like you to solve a mystery: 
HOW ARE THESE BACKGROUNDS MADE? 
WHAT MATERIALS ARE USED?

I'd like to make this a little contest. Important: DO NOT GUESS IN THE COMMENTS SECTION! If the guesses show up as comments, everyone (who reads the comments) will see the answers. Instead, email me your guess at lidna52@gmail.com. 

You will have until midnight CST on Friday, January 31, to get your guess to me via email (lidna52@gmail.com). 
Put "Background Guess" as your subject line.
On Saturday, February 1, I will gather all the correct guesses and choose a random winner. 
Along with your guess, also include which of the backgrounds is your favorite. 

The prize for the winner will be a card I created especially for you from your chosen background and a few other surprises.

I will announce the winner in my blog post that will be published Sunday, February 2. Also in this blog post, I will give you the correct answer, and will have a card created from MY favorite to show you.

Put your creative thinking caps on, and send me your guess: lidna52@gmail.com. I hope I hear from lots of you! Of course, I would love to get comments on this post also, but not guesses. OK? 

Oh, and one more thing: I would LOVE to have you follow Paper Seedlings in either Bloglovin' or with Google Friend Connect. Both buttons are on the right side bar of my blog. If you would like to get updates whenever I have a new post, usually twice a week, please sign up in "Follow by Email".

  10. I'm intrigued! They are beautiful but I can't quite figure out what you used to create these fun designs. I'll be back to find out, though, as I found you through the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop at Katherine's Corner so I'll look forward to connecting with you again soon. Thanks for sharing!
