Tip of the Day: Working with Busy and Bold Backgrounds from Stamp & Scrapbook Expo


LeAnn from the Stamp & Scrapbook Expo team is here to share her tips for working with pattern papers that have a dominant pattern. How often does it happen that you fall in love with a beautiful pattern paper with a big and bold background, but you get it home and are not sure how to create a layout with it? LeAnn shares how she works with bold backgrounds to create lovely scrapbook pages.

Thanks, LeAnn, for sharing your creative process with us. I recently attended some workshops at Stamp & Scrapbook Expo and came home with new skills, new excitement about being creative, plus lots of new products to play with. Don’t let an opportunity to attend a Stamp & Scrapbook Expo workshop pass you by! It was a very rejuvenating experience for me and I came home ready to create more than ever. With workshops featuring stamping, coloring, card making, scrapbooking, and more, there is definitely something for everyone. Visit their web site HERE to get a complete listing of Expos near you. Grab a friend and make a weekend of it! And don’t forget that if you take a workshop, you get that day’s admission to the show free. Happy creating!

    Would it be possible to do a video with examples? I am having a hard time visualizing the technique. Thanks so much.

  2. Mary Schultz says:

    My problem is that I tend to choose large prints rather than something like your example paper, and I can never figure out how to use it without losing the design (like one big flower in the center of the paper). Any suggestions for how to use those papers?

    Sorry Im a visual person and it doesn’t sound pretty at all. sure wish you had done a layout to demo your idea.

    Matting is the easiest way I tame down large busy prints. By the time you mat all your photos, add title, journaling & some bellies, that paper won’t be near as overwhelming as when you’re looking at it with nothing on it.
