Oh I have so many things to share with you…soon very soon. We are wrapping up working with busy/patterned paper. This one is sooo funny I am laughing while typing this. Here’s the story! At work I was the hosting manager for our monthly team building exercise. I decided to ask a few people if they would let me photoshop them in a photo that would describe what they are passionate about. I turned in the photos….I had NO IDEA what my coworker would do as I didn’t look at the picture until I did the presentation. I nearly died…it was Oprah and me with our BIG HAIR.
How about this for busy patterned paper! TIP: Create a canvas. Here used the Silhouette to cut out two scalloped circles to create a neutral canvas.
TIP: Keep your embellishments simple. I punched out some butterflies and used a few pearls…that’s it. I know its weird coming from me, huh.
I added my journaling on the side. Remember to keep it simple or make a double page layout for the rest of your journaling. I hope this helps you tackle some of that heavily patterned paper in your stash!
Supplies: Basic Gray patterned paper in a bundle from Archivers (B&M), Want2Scrap Pearls, Silhouette Scallop Circle File, American Craft Knockout Butterfly Punch, a second butterfly punch purchased from a destash and stickers.
