Hera Frei uses the same paper line from Stacy Julian coupled with some Cosom Cricket Core Impressions without sanding:

Well..How about both? Heather Bowser left her Core Essentionals background paper as is and then sanded her pumpkins:

How do you decide whether a projects needs that little extra touch of sanding? We would love to hear your thoughts!

    I tried sanding after applying gesso on top (idea from Doris Sander.) I will definitely be doing that again! http://creativekokes.wordpress.com/2010/10/07/finally/

    I always assemble the project without sanding first, and if it doesn’t quite look finished to me I add the “little extra touch.” Not very scientific, I know, but it works for me!
