Shimelle Let's Go to San Juan

Today on the blog at Paper Issues it is all about Shimelle and her collections from American Crafts.  I love this fun travel collection she released this summer.  Go Now Go was perfect for my summer travel pics to San Juan, Puerto Rico.  I did more of a tone on tone LO for this photo of me against a gorgeous artsy wall!

It was fun to paper piece the background and do this design off-centered.  I have seen it done centered on the page and wanted to try a varied look.  I had the Cut It Up January challenge free cut file sitting on my desk, so I incorporated it into the photo. I added navy paper and a Shimelle puffy sticker to the cut file.
Here are a few close ups:

Love the bronze glitter Thicker phrases!  It makes thinking of a title so easy!  Also, the sticker booklet had words that went right with this travel themed page and the mini alpha stickers to spell out the city I was in.  The wood buttons and enamel shapes add a bit of fun to the corner of the photo.

Thanks for taking a peek at this fun way to use patterned paper for a textured background!  Sew down those strips of paper and lift them up for shadowing.  Go super colorful or stick with monochromatic like I did!
