I voted. I like the recolored elements. When I sit down to scrap I want everything all ready for me lol.
I voted in your poll as well and left a comment because it's a great topic. As I was typing my response, I tought of something else that got me wondering. How about solid papers?
I've gone back and forth on this in my kits so I'm wondering what your opinion is on the solid papers in a kit. Do you like all the colors of the palette represented in the solid papers with the same texture or do you prefer all the colors but with different textures? I flip flop on this and tend to include most of colors with the same texture. Or perhaps you prefer to only have a few of the main colors that go with several of the patterened papers. Questions, questions, questions!
I go back and forth about papers, too. If my palette has four or less colors then I usually just go ahead and make solids from all of them, but if there are more than that in my palette then I choose a light neutral, a dark color for contrast, and then one or two others. I often rotate 2 or 3 textures on all of my papers to tie them together, but switch up the overlays I use to roughen them up with, so that they don't look too much the same. Even if papers have the same basic texture I try to make sure they aren't exactly the same (rotate or flip the overlay, add different grunge overlays, etc). That's just my own preference, though!
Maybe I should just stop thinking about it. LOL The more I think about it, the more unsure I am about the way I do things. Maybe I should just be satisfied that some people like my kits the way they are?
