Hello, Crafty Beginners!
This week the challenge is to use three different design papers. The challenge here is to combine papers that in most instances would never be used together.
Paper Piecing is a wonderful way address a challenge like this.
Here is an example of Paper Piecing using three papers.
The third design paper is used in the bodice, skirt ruffle, socks. It is a smaller dotted print than the background paper. Try to keep your designs cohesive. Don't add components simply for the sake of covering up empty space. Empty space can make your design more interesting to the eye. Over embellishing can diminish your design and become tiring to the eye!
Traditional Card Using 3 Design Papers
Color integration is a key factor when combining papers.
To add interest, you can pop in a contrasting color as a counterpoint.
Paper stacks and scrap kits contain coordinated papers that work well in combination. Challenge yourself by using papers from your stash or mix papers from different stacks!
