I have always been a little patterned paper challenged when it comes to mixing patterns on a card, so when I saw this class I jumped at the chance to improve my skills. This is the first online class I have taken and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I have a LOT of patterned paper, both 12 x 12 and 6 x 6. I use a sheet now and then for a background or a design element, but I have seen so many beautiful cards that have multiple colors and/or patterns on the same card and try as I would I could not pull of that look to save my life. This is day 3 of the class and I have already learned quite a bit! I am, of course, behind in the homework, but here is my card for the first day:
I made it last night and wasn’t all that crazy about it, but when I took a second look at it this morning I quite liked it. The paper is from the new Knee Highs 6 x 6 paper pad by Basic Grey, the edge is a Martha border punch, and the sentiment is, naturally, from Hero Arts.
I am off to do some Day 2 homework!
