Layering Paper

Love lots of pattern but don't want to overwhelm your photo? Try layering your papers. Here I used several rectangles of paper - some of which have lots of colorful patterns - but by showing only a small portion of them the layout isn't overwhelmed.

This is a great way to use those leftover scraps, too! You don't need to use solid rectangles either -  that blue piece? it's actually two smaller scraps that I arranged to look like a whole sheet. And all those smaller pieces poking out to the left of the photo? They look like they must be larger, like a photo mat, but they're really only about as big as what's showing.
