The Counterfeit Kit March Challenge #2 is to mix at least 3 different patterned papers together, inspired by the designer Vera Bradley. I often mix patterns together on pages with a cardstock or plain background, so to really challenge myself I used a background paper with a bold pink chevron pattern...
Happy to be Together:
I made sure that some patterns were bold, some subtle, some big, and some small, so that the patterns didn't overwhelm my photo.
I am pleased to have finally used this 'Happy to be Together' chipboard piece as my title - it's been in my stash for years and years:
And my Shrinkles bird looks good next to some layered up Prima flowers and Crate Paper Brad (I attached the bird using glossy accents):
I love how bright and busy this layout is, as it reminds me of that summer day. Though since I finished and photographed the layout I've remembered more details about the day - like how me and my daughter didn't like the food as she is picky and I was heavily pregnant... and how she didn't want to go home because there was a path-maze that she was walking round-and-round for ages... I need to fit some more journaling somewhere!
How about it - will you have a go at mixing lots of patterns on your next page?
I'm off shoe shopping for the kids today... wish me luck! x
