Welcome to the second Patterned Paper Every Which Way Class! It's going to be a fun year of using my favorite supply (and hopefully yours) , patterned paper!! This month we are cutting strips of patterned paper and having a little fun with them.
for class PDF including instructions and photos.
Each month we will have a challenge associated with the class. This month your challenge is to create a layout/card/project on which you've used strips of patterned paper as the primary embellishment or as the background. Try to use them in a way you've never done before!
To participate in the Challenge:
-Create a project using strips of patterned paper as the primary embellishment or background.
-Layout can Digital, Traditional or a Hybrid.
-Submit your layout by uploading to the gallery by March 9, 2010 11:59 CST. Don't forget to click the box next to this class (Patterned Paper Every Which Way: February 2010).
I will pick a winner randomly from all the submissions to win a Gift Certificate to Two Peas and post the winner on the Education Board on February 1st. For every submission to this class you will earn a badge!
Don't forget to stop by the Education board to chat and share links to your layouts.
How can you dress up your layout with simple strips of Patterned Paper?
A million and one ways! Wide strips, skinny strips, horizontal, vertical, strips cut into a shape, tone on tone strips, strips with the same pattern but different colors, ….you get the idea! Strips are one of the easiest ways to use patterned papers, especially those that you find a bit busy to use in large doses. Most of my layouts aren’t done until I have a skinny strip of striped paper on it somewhere.
Here are the supplies I used:
I've also added some patterned papers that I thought would work well below...
