Today I would like to share my take on our "Go Bold with Patterned Paper" theme this month. If you are like me, some patterned papers may scare you just a little bit. I conquer my fear of bold patterned paper buy using small amounts of it on my layouts. Today I am going to over how I did exactly this with my "Beautiful Soul" layout.
The striped background is actually the inner portion of the Main Attraction paper from Funhouse. By removing the "curtains" from this paper, it allowed me to create a unique shape for my background as well as add a nice bold pattern. To create the wings behind the picture, I cut out the wings from the One Sheet Wonderful paper from Antiquities. Then I added some Chipart stars that I painted with white crackle paint, some hand-stitching, and one of the border stickers to finish off my layout. There you have it. A simple use for bold patterened paper. Have an awesome day everyone!
