Sharing a layout tip for using busy and bright patterned papers (there are so many beautiful ones in these kits to choose from)! If you’re anything like me, sometimes it can be overwhelming to try and think of how to use crazier prints on your pages. Like in this instance, I knew I wanted to use these two papers…both were very busy and contrasting when it came to the colors. For me what works, is breaking them down a bit from the 12×12 size itself and placing a plain cardstock behind them both. Had I used the pink or teal patterned paper as the backdrop this layout just wouldn’t have worked in my opinion.
