I love the fun angles in this patterned paper from BasicGrey. I anted to use it as a large part of the background, but wanted to break it up a little and give it some punch of color!
I decided to layer another pattern underneath the confetti/angled paper. I cut triangles out of the background with an Xacto blade, concentrating more of them at the bottom and less towards the top.
Adding a layer of watercolor wash, in an ombré blend from dark pink to very pale pink. It added a nice, contrasting pop of color, but wasn’t overpowering.
I placed my black & white photo on top of layers of stickers, washi and a few of the canvas banner pennants. My layouts tend to be more squared off and orthogonal, so this was a fun exercise in being loose.
Thanks for stopping by! Have an end of the weekend!
