My favorite sheet of patterned paper in Bundled Up is this red snowflake one with the cute polka dots on the flip side. I only had one sheet of this double-sided paper, so I carefully cut out the middle and flipped it over.
I wanted to bring in another color on this layout and chose an aqua paper with big pink polka dots. It was a little too much, though, so I toned it down with paint. I thinned the paint with water then white washed the pink polka dots.
I loved the snowy effect the paint gave the paper. Now the layout has a pop of color but it doesn't overwhelm the page.
One last look. Thanks for stopping by! I'll be back on Wednesday with a tutorial for a shaker card.
