Here's a layout I made yesterday for this week's Make It Monday at PTI: mixing patterned papers. I was also inspired by this sketch from the April Page Maps.
Here's my layout. I didn't have any patterned paper that matched Sage's top in the photo, so I decided to use it as a colour and choose others that I thought coordinated well with the purple.
I used Crate Paper from my scraps, Papertrey Ink stamps (Simply You) and dies (double-ended banner dies & Uppercase Block Alphabet-- which I took apart for the first time to make my title.) The brads are Crate (die) and My Mind's Eye (script).
Here's a close-up of the little flags I made using the double ended banner dies. I wrapped part of the patterned paper around the pin and adhered it in the back.
Here's a close-up of my journaling:
Thanks for looking!
