I always gravitate toward these simpler, graphic patterns because they are easy to work with and incorporate into a page design.
But while I began my design with solely polka dots and chevrons, I found it was impossible not to mix in several more of the coordinating patterned papers - they all just work so wonderfully together! I've used a whopping 10 total patterns on my completed page:
I've added in snippets from the Accessory Sheet (journal spots and tags) and mini papers, as well as some of the new Quilted Stickers and Printed Tags. And while at first glance you might think Magpie is a feminine paper collection more suitable for baby or girl layouts, the small touches of red in the palette make it versatile for so many more subjects!
Stay tuned this week for more peeks from the CHA releases...and happy scrapping!
