As you may know from previous posts, I am experiencing a bold patterned papers background phase (if you want to learn more about it just check here!) and Doodlebug Design patterns are perfect for this purpose.

I specially loved this gorgeous black patterned paper and decided to use it as background of this layout that documents the first day of school of my little boy.

Since there were so much happening on the background, I went for a simple grid design with a big cut file title. Here is my project:

I used few of the cards included on one of the patterned papers, these are perfect for a grid design. I also created few clusters on embellishments on opposites extremes of the page, just to keep it symmetric.
I created this simple diet title using the instruction of this video, it's really easy! I backed the letters with the paper of the 6x6 inches pads because patterns are smaller and work better for this purpose.
I love of colorful and happy this layout came out. Although it has a lot of color, embellishments, bolds background and 3 photos, it looks balanced and not overwhelming at all... at least that is what I feel when I look at it :)
I hope you like this idea, dare to get out from your confort zone with simple backgrounds and give a try to beautiful patterned papers. Have a lovely day!
