I absolutely adore working with stripes, especially when we are talking about pattern paper. I love mixing colors and patterns in fun ways while working with simple and fun shapes.
Since I wanted my strips to be very thin, I chose to work from my Shine On 6x6 Paper Pad, however you can totally use your 12x12 paper scraps for this design. You can even use carstock scraps in rainbow order for a super bright and colorful result!
So anyway, back to the 6x6 pad, I picked out patterns in all the different colors that are featured in the collection and cut them down to the thinnest strips that my paper cutter could handle.
Before I started adhering my strips, I wanted to add a little something to break the white background, so I pulled out a couple Color Shine sprays and added some messy splatters all over the page. I made sure to let my splatters dry for a few minutes so I won’t risk smudging the color and then I went back to my paper strips.
I didn’t really overthink the order of the colors and patterns, I just made sure to spread them as evenly as possible. To do that, I just stuck my strips one pattern at a time so all the pieces of the same design are far from each other.
When all the strips were in place, I created a little cluster using some of my favorite ephemera pieces from the collection. I used one of the journaling pieces as a border around my photo and also added a few stickers as well as one of the adorable leather bows.
I really hope you enjoyed this page, until next time, happy crafting.
