How to Mix Patterns – Paperclipping 209

paperclipping 209
Do you end up with many leftovers from your scrapbook kits or from manufactured paper lines?

One of the more valuable skills that comes from having a good design eye is to be able to mix and match patterns from different lines. You can take your products so much further if you create new “lines” or “kits” by mixing and matching what you have.

When you identify which of your different products look great together, it’s possible to actually use up entire lines and kits! ;)

And check out what a different look I was able to get for the two scrapbook pages in the pictures for this post. Two very different looks for two very different stories, even though both layouts began from the same scrapbook line.

Try it today, or this weekend!

Pick a line you love, and then find some leftovers that have lost their luster but that will match some of your new exciting line. Then tell me if you don’t feel renewed excitement in the older products as well!

If you need to expand your skills for mixing patterns, you’ll love the newest video I just put out for Paperclipping Members. Members can find this video in the Member’s Area or on iTunes.

    Noell, you always bring your fresh perspectives to the scrapbooking world. I always learn something new and I have been scrapping for a really long time! Thanks for your ard work.

  • Thank you for the kind words! I guess one of the benefits of being a bit unusual and a tad contrary by nature is that I think a little differently than most people. ;)
    It gives me a unique perspective. :)

    Noell, I have heard many people explain how to coordinate patterned papers before, but you are the first to explain the real underlying concept behind it. Totally “get it” now. Thanks for a great video! Laura

  • Yay! :)
