They All Fall Down

Tuesday, December 6, 2016

Hey there! As a patterned paper junkie, I love the topic of today's Get It Scrapped blog article! We are talking about using patterned paper to strengthen design on the page.

I used patterned paper here to help establish emphasis in three ways. The woodgrain paper speaks to the trees and leaves. The floral paper and multi color leaves also emphasizes the outdoors, but also the variety of color seen in my photos. Lastly, the small bit of arrow print plays to direction and movement of the leaves falling. The photos are small and could have easily been overwhelmed by product.  Using these patterns altogether brings unity to the page, while still highlighting the photos. 

My neighborhood is surrounded by trees. This year as the leaves were falling, 
I noticed all of their beautiful shapes, sizes and colors. I decided to document this, 
instead of all the changing colors, which you see in the fallen leaves anyway.

Thanks for stopping by my creative view today. Come back again soon, I've got more to share.
