Comedy Of Errors

Hello here to share my final creation for Scrappy Chat Designs Stars Fly kit with you and to share a little trick of the trade when it comes to balancing your projects. The gorgeous Stars Fly kit has some amazing papers included in it and I really enjoyed playing with them.

So here is just a very quick tutorial on how you can balance your layout when using a very predominant patterned paper.

I wanted to incorporate two large circles on to my background but they were a bit “floaty” so I discovered that if I placed the string between the two, they suddenly seemed more grounded and connected and less all over the shop.

I simply repeated whatever I did in one circle into the other which then gave it a symmetrical appearance and also assisted to keep the two pieces joined and appearing as they were meant to be one.

I also set the chevron patterns for each circle in the opposite direction to help identify that they were the same but in some way still different or separate.

It was very exciting discovering how this paper could be a feature of my layout without getting in the way too much. And did you notice? NO MIXED MEDIA!! I know!! Craaaazy LOL
