Weekly Challenge : Use Patterned Paper As Your Layout Background

THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE : Use patterned paper as the background of your layout.  Easy, right?  Dress it up, dress it down – just make sure it’s the base of your page.

This week, I’ve asked BasicGrey design team member Larissa Albernaz to participate in our challenge.

We can’t wait to see what you create for this week’s challenge! Leave a comment below with a link to your project and we’ll select one commenter at random to receive a collection pack of your choice. Comment must be posted by October 13, 2011 at 11:59p MST.

If you upload your layout to your blog or online gallery, be sure to also upload it to our new BasicGrey Flickr page so that other BG fans can find your work easily.



CONGRATULATIONS to our winner selected at random from the comments we received by the noted deadline :

Here is a layout I just finished. The main background is textured as well as the 4 mini backgrounds. I love the dark texture behind the lighter busier papers. I decided to keep it simple without additional embellishment as there was already so much going on.
