October already??!!! I hope you all are still enjoying the class. I have been having so much fun scrapping for it. Seriously some of my favorite layouts...that always feels so good, doesn't it?

October Class Description:

Once again it's all about PATTERNED PAPER! This time we are making our own background out of several patterned papers, not just one like we did in April. We'll take what we've learned about combining patterns in July and September and have a little fun.

Creating your own patterned paper background is all about portion control. For the most part you wouldn't want the same amount of each paper, choose 2-3 base papers and 2-3 accent papers. You can see I chose a paper that had a large scalloped edge. This keeps the background from being too straight. If your paper doesn't have a scalloped edge try using border punches or cut your own scallop. Another little trick is to cover those seams. Use skinny strips of paper, ribbon, trim, border stickers, etc. Layers and texture can make your background come alive!...

Be sure to download the PDF, here , for more photos, description, links to examples and directions for this layout.

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 made your own patterned paper background by combining several patterned papers.

To participate in the Challenge:

-Create a project on which you've made your own patterned paper background by combining several patterned papers.

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 November 10th. For every submission to this class you will earn a badge!

What a great layout! There are just so many things that I love about it, I don't know where to start. You've used several things that I've been wanting to incoporate into scrapbooking, but just haven't yet - now I have some great ideas on how to! Thanks Shannon!
