Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday! As always, there is an amazing SOSN sale today with lots of digital kits available for 50% off. I am dropping in with a quick tip for creating a patchwork neutral digital background. Here is an example (made with some of the goodies in today’s SOSN sale – click on layout for full credits):
I love creating on neutral/white backgrounds, but sometimes I want to kick it up a notch. Patchwork backgrounds are an easy way to add some interest to a page without using patterned paper. Grid or Pocket Scrapping templates are a super easy way to create a patchwork background. I created the background on my page with these templates by NBK Design:
Using neutral papers from Just Jaimee’s Storyteller August 2019 kit and Kim Jensen’s Temperate Painted Papers in all of the photo and background spaces on the template gave me a more interesting background than just using one solid neutral paper. Here is a comparison of the patchwork background with a solid background:
I hope this technique inspires you to look at pocket scrapping templates in a whole new way!
Until next time ~
