For my journal cover, I started by choosing my patterned paper and then cooridinated two colors of card stock to go with it. They made my background, and I layered the border of the patterned paper along the left edge, tearing it off for some added texture.
The embellishments are very simple because of the busyness of the patterned paper. I matted a square of pattern to make a large image and did the same for the card stock sticker sentiment. A few gently placed acrylic dots balance it out and finish it off!
Use a large image and sentiment in the middle of the card to stand out from the patterned paper. Add a sprinkling of small embellishments in coordinating shapes or colors, and you’ll have a beautiful finished piece.
