5 (more) ways to mix patterns like a pro on your creative projects

Last month I shared 5 ways to mix patterns like a pro on your creative projects. Here are 5 more ways to mix your patterns like a pro on your creative projects. :)

Cute layout for Maya Road & Ruby Rock-It product swap

1. Create a patchwork mat with your patterned papers.

Here is a great way to use up those patterned paper scraps by pulling them together to create a mat for your photos. 

Everybody love cheesecake

2. Slot little scrap pieces along the perimeter of your photos.

This is my fave way to utilize those little scrap bits that are too small to create substantial impact singularly but can add much interest collectively. :)

So we won tickers to see Kooza

3. Triangulation helps guide the eye and grounds the piece.

Here I used black/white elements to visually help guide the eye around the layout ... can you spot them?

The Tupperware Party
4. Fussy-cut your patterned pieces and create a whimsical "scene".

Fussy-cutting the elements allows you to incorporate smaller bits of patterned paper without overwhelming your creative piece. And a whimsical "scene" is always a fun way to document a fun life event. :)

The layout with lots of stuff
5. Use repeated shapes to create a cohesive look.

Here I cut my patterned paper into fishtails and triangles and scattered them throughout the whole layout for a cohesive finish.

There you have it...5 more ways to mix patterns like a pro on your creative projects.
