Tip: Don’t let patterned paper scare you!

20th July, 2008 at 8:29 pm (Uncategorized)

I’m sure many of us are the same. You see a beautiful sheet of patterned paper that you absolutely love, you buy it, get it home and then look at it again thinking ummm…. what on earth do I do with this!?

More often than not, my hardest part is that I don’t want to cover up the patterns, rather than not really liking them anymore, so here’s an idea to try. This is one of the Dutch Girl papers in the Straight Laced kit. I had no idea what to do with it, and so made it into this maze book for my Friday night scrapbook class. And you know what, it was the best paper to use, each page had beautiful patterns on them, in much smaller chunks. Some of them even turned out symmetrical on each page.

Try it and see how you get on. If you want to see the finished book, check out http://www.scrapbookingforthesoul.blogspot.com
