Pattern Play Day 1:Homework (part 1)

Hi there!

So there will be several posts coming in rapid succession, all of which will have very few words.

Today was day 1 of the latest Online Card Class: Pattern Play.  Today's class talked about how you choose patterned papers to go together on a card.

It's only a week-long class this time but I really wanted to try to keep up with the "homework" and play along as I went. I always take the OCC classes when they're on but I never manage to work along with them.

Despite the fact that I'm a total sucker for patterned paper in general, I rarely use it on a card. I tend to use stamping to create my colours/patterns, so this is the perfect class for me. I'm forever staring at patterned paper, wondering how to make it into something 'me'.

So I'm going to show you the SEVERAL cards I made based on today's concepts.

I started out with the March Simon Says Stamp kit, that was VERY WONDERFULLY and generously given to me by a sweet sweet friend. (I wont mention who but THANKYOU DARLING!!!) I was so excited to get to play with the Lawn Fawn papers in the kit as well as the exclusive stamp set.

So that I can link my projects up to the student gallery over at OCC, I have to post each card in separate blog posts. (So, apologies for the sudden influx of nearly wordless posts :))

Ok onto card #1!

Nice and simple, but using the tips Kristina and Jennifer shared today, I'm really happy with the balance of the patterns, and the card in general :)

Hope you like! I'll be back VERY soon :)
