I love patterned paper and I am so glad to see so many companies offering the 6 X 6 paper pads. It's such a great way to get all the sheets from a collection without breaking the bank. I had fun playing with a variety of papers from the Kate & Co line from My Minds Eye to create this layout. the double sided papers in the pad were perfect for trying out a rolling technique.
I'm a sucker for any patterned paper that includes navy blue. I'm not sure why but that is definitely my go to color! To create my rolled paper background I cut 2 X 6 inch strips of paper. I then did my bottom row, lining it up with the bottom of my white cardstock base but only putting adhesive about 3 inches up. I rolled over the tops making sure that they were different heights. I then slid my second row underneath those and did the same. I knew I wanted to leave the top plain white giving the eyes someplace to rest amongst all the patterns :).I added my pictures with simple clusters of embellishments, letters, and words. Kind of a fun technique to try!
