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!
