Pattern Play with Candace Perkins

Hello friends! It’s Candace here with you to share a little patterned paper play today! One of my very favorite products available in the shop are the 6 x 6 paper stacks. Today for my layout I chose to combine a bunch of patterns from different paper stacks to create a fun background pattern for my page. I really enjoyed taking the time to create and play with paper; no rules, just fun, and I love the final layout! Who says we can’t tell our stories and have a little fun too?!

To start my layout, I cut various pieces of patterned paper into 4″ x 4″ squares, then cut them again right down the middle, creating lots of triangles for me to play with! Next, I laid out a 12″ x 12″ white cardstock base and moved around paper until I landed on a geometric design that I liked. 

Once I had my background designed, I chose a few papers to pop up and a few to glue directly to the cardstock base. I like to do this to create a bit more interest on my spreads. I love this look of dimension and the ability to create a completely different look on a page by elevating certain pieces.  

By creating dimension with the papers and layers I was then able to form little pockets in between papers where I could add and tuck my embellishments perfectly.  I loved placing the cute wood veneer pencil from the TGIF Wood Veneers between a few papers on the lower right hand corner.

Before I was done with the spread I cut a few more triangles out of the same white base card stock and added them in a few spots across the page to add to the balance and the overall design. Lastly, I added my title with the “Back to School” TGIF Wood Veneer piece, along with the year using the Jane Alphabet Stickers.

Such a fun layout! Check out all of the fun 6 x 6 paper stacks available in the shop and get to creating! I can’t wait to see how you play with the patterns and paper! Please tag #EllesStudio in your creations on Instagram or share in our Elle’s Studio Facebook group, so that we can swoon over them! Have a beautiful day and see you again soon!
