Hey everyone! It's Lisa Truesdell, and I'm here to give you this week's challenge. One of my favorite things about the Classic Calico collection is how subtle the patterns are. I love to reach for these neutral, tone on tone papers as the perfect background for my pages. This week, I want you to challenge you to use patterned paper as the base for your next page. Whether you go with a small and understated pattern like I've used, or reach for something fun and bold, your page will have a different look than if you'd started with cardstock.
To start this page, I placed the Circle Grid mask near the middle of the paper, the lightly misted over it with Mister Huey's Water Cooler and Shine. I placed my photos above and below a strip of Fabrips, then added washi tape and patterned paper to accent. I typed my journaling on the background of the page, then added some embellishments and stamping. I love that the patterned paper background keeps my fairly simple design from looking too sparse.
