What about hand drawn doodles... I goof around drawing florals and paisley designs often. And you can hand marker or watercolor paint in them as well.

I loved the idea of punched circles lined up half under another paper to create the scalloped border look!
Not often, but sometimes, cutting certain pictures into the mosaic squares is a fun technique.
Layering certain embellishments, to give a 3-d look (ie, 2 of a sticker with part of top one pop-dotted up to give a dimensional look.

That is a great list! I didn't catch this on the list, so sorry if it is repeated. I use individual jewels to make shapes.

WOW! What a great list. I was trying to think of some new ways to embellish pages just the other day. Will be printing off this list.

One thing that I didn't see on the list that I have use is - rocks - the stung kind that they use to make jewelry. I've used them quite a bit on LO's of my western travels.

Use the orange mess bags oranges come in on a layout. I saw one where it had been painted and used on a layout with children in an amusement ride. Cute! Or use it as is on a fall page.
