The Amazing Stripe-Man ( Conquering Paper Mountain #1)

Let me introduce the Amazing Stripe-Man . His special power is the ability to keep his stripes perfectly straight, no matter how much his cape billows. He's flown in today to get me started on conquering my paper mountain, which is my project for 2016.

Okay, this has only used up two sheets of my 13 inch pile, but it's a start! This is the pad I used:

The superhero image is from A Day for Daisies and the sentiment, which I chopped up, is from a Hero Arts set I got for Christmas.

I'd like to enter:
