Scrapbooking with Bright Colours and Fun Patterns

Put some pizzazz into your scrapbooking by using bright colours and fun patterns.

Here are some tips that will help!

New Driver layout

When you use bright papers that have fun patterns you don’t want your layout to be overwhelming. Find your “neutral” pattern. The yellow paper from the background of this layout is a neutral pattern. Even though it has a busy pattern the monochromatic colours make it a neutral. These are great choices to use between any patterns that are really bold, like the multi-coloured circles.

Really bold patterns can be less overwhelming if you layer photos, journaling or other papers over top.

Adding texture, like embossing, is a great way to add interest to the page without it getting too busy and makes plain cardstock more fun!

Another great way to add texture is to raise some elements off of the page using pop dots or foam tape.

The fun cars on this layout are dimensional. You can create this look by cutting design elements out of patterned paper and layering them on your page.
