MAKE IT COLORFUL
YUM by Tessa Buys
My favorite part of weaving is seeing the patterns that emerge when you use different colors. For this layout, I chose three colors - pink, blue and yellow. I find that using three colors, or another odd number, tends to have the best results. If you look closely, you can see a chevron-like pattern on my page. For added interested, I varied the length of the strips on each edge and pennantcut the blue strips. A splatter of mist and journaling strips in crisp white stand out against the bright colors, patterns and texture. If you want your patterned papers to have a big effect on your next layout, try weaving a few together. The impact is immediate and the texture is fantastic!
