Mixing it Up

Hey there foxes. Do you hoard pretty papers and goodies from different collections? I know that I do! Even though i have enough patterned paper to wallpaper a large building, I still can't resist pretty paper.

One thing I'm often asked is how to put patterns together. In this example, I've used 4 different patterned papers. Using a simple design, I angled a couple of papers to create a bit of drama. It was also a great place to add ephemara from various collections too.

To anchor the main photo (of my very cute dog), I splodged some Picked Raspberry Distress ink using the packaging technique. I then samped in the same colour or black for a confetti look.

The beautiful monochrome flowers were fussy cut from My Mind's Eye (Gingham Farm) collection. The black really makes the other colours pop.

Layer up your die-cuts, papers, trinkets to add detail and interest. I backed the Story Arrow with paper for a bit of extra pop.
