Pattern Play #1
Thursday, March 21, 2013
I have an embarrassingly large box filled with pretty paper scraps that I have decided to start putting to good use! To keep me motivated I have signed on to participate in a class by OnlineCardClasses.com called Pattern Play. This first card incorporates a tip from trainer Kristina Werner. She says to create a well balanced card using patterned paper you should use a large/medium pattern + a small pattern + a solid or tone on tone pattern to create good contrast. I dug through my box of scraps and pulled out these papers to create this card in line with this tip.
