Free Again!!!

Finally took my exam and I'm FREE again.  Guess what I've been doing in my free time... Yeah, that's right, I've been documenting my Washington DC trip again.

I absolutely love this layout! It was inspired by Heather Summer's page found here.

My trick for today is how I created the background paper. Look really closely... do you recognize the pattern? If you said it looked like one of the "Night and Day" papers from last year you would be correct! But what is this... it's blue!

Here is all you need to do to create this look.  Use a solid color background (pacific point in my case) and then add a black and white patterned paper over the top. Last but not least, turn down the opacity on the patterned paper until the desired look is obtained.

The "Night and Day" paper is perfect for this technique! I have been using it throughout this album and just love the texture it gives, so keep your eyes open for it on the following pages.

Pin It!
