MAKING VARIATIONS OF A PATTERN FOR QUICK PAGE PRODUCTION

THIS WEEK, I'M SHARING HOW I TOOK ONE SIMPLE STRIPE PATTERN AND USED IT THREE DIFFERENT WAYS TO MAKE CUTE DYNAMIC PAGES FOR MY INSTAGRAM ALBUM. THE BEST PART? THEY WERE SUPER QUICK!

VARIATION ONE

THIS LAYOUT IS THE FIRST VARIATION FOR THE PATTERN. HERE I USED BIG BOLD STRIPES OF COLOR AND SIMPLY RAN THEM VERTICALLY DOWN THE PAGE FOR AN EASY TO MAKE BACKGROUND PAPER. BECAUSE OF THE VIBRANCY OF MY BACKGROUND, I STUCK TO A BLACK AND WHITE IMAGE AND FRAMED IT IN A POLAROID LIKE FRAME FROM LITTLE LAMM & CO. THE CIRCLES AND TICK BOXES ARE ALSO ADDITIONS FROM HER NEWEST COLLECTION AND REALLY HELP TO ROUND OUT THE SPREAD.

VARIATION TWO

THIS LAYOUT IS THE SECOND VARIATION FOR THE PATTERN. TO ACHIEVE THIS VERSION, I SIMPLY ROTATED AND SCALED THE STRIPES AND REPLICATED THEM TO FILL THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE SPREAD. USING A SIMILAR APPROACH TO MAKING THIS LAYOUT HELPED ME TO KEEP THE PROCESS FUN AND EFFORTLESS. SIMPLY ADDING DIMENSION WITH THE BOW AND BUTTON DETAILING (ALSO FROM LL&CO) REALLY HELPS TO FINISH THE SPREAD AND GIVE IT SOOKE OOMPH.

VARIATION THREE

THIS LAYOUT IS THE THIRD PATTERN VARIATION. TO ACHIEVE THIS PATTERN I SIMPLY EXTENDED THE LINES OF COLOR FROM VARIATION TWO AND ROATED THEM INTO THEIR FINAL LOCATION. I ADDED FRAMING TO MY - SURPRISE! - BLACK AND WHITE IMAGE WITH BOTH THE POLAROID FRAME AND SOME LAYERED BITS AND PIECES. THE LAYERING HELPS KEEP YOUR EYE FOCUSED ON THE IMAGE AND HELPS CREATE DISTINCTION BETWEEN THE BACKGROUND AND FOREGROUND SPACES.
