Hi, Gina here to share a simple strategy for a different kind background using pattern paper from the June main kit After adding a few scrapes of gesso (available in the CTK shop) and allowing it to dry I hand cut 6 long right angle triangles of roughly the same size and overlapped the middle ones slightly. I also added a triangle to the corner.
You might like to add machine stitching around some of the triangles for texture
I layered in some Studio Calico die-cuts and used a Crate Paper slide frame over the photo, and embellished with Basic Grey enamel dots, Studio Calico arrow, die-cuts and an exclusive CTK flair. To finish off I added some mist splatters, hand journaling and a Jillibean Soup ‘wise word’ sticker for the title…
…and another little detail, in the corner I used an exclusive CTK stamp and Prima Ink (from the main kit) for the sentiment, which I stamped onto to copy paper and cut into a little banner – this is a great way to add stamping over patterned paper or if you don’t want to stamp directly onto the layout
