I love the way Shannon Tidwell highlighted the beautiful patterns in Mint Julep in circle form in her layout. Not only does it create dynamism, but it’s a great way to add white space to any project!
Shannon: The Mint Julep Collection is so soft and sweet, perfect for baby or girl layouts. There are so many pretty patterns that I couldn’t decide on which ones to use…so I used several. I punched circles in varying sizes to create a splattering of color and pattern. I also mixed in a few Candy Buttons and spattering of paint. To frame the photo I used the decorative flaps from the envelopes.
Punch or cut circles out of patterned paper and use as the main elements on your project!
