Daily Special - Technique Day - Pattern Paper Overlay Tutorial


Click Here for the Tutorial

Hey Gang! How is everyone's day going? Today's Daily Special is "Technique Day". I'm not sure this is a true technique but it's just something I do sometimes. I call the technique "Pattern Paper Overlay" and I created a tutorial for it. The picture of the card is pretty self-explanatory but if you are a visual person and need instructions, check out the tutorial.

Using pattern paper to fill in your image is a great way to add character to the image. It eliminates the process of having to color in an image but you do have to do a bit of cutting which I know a lot of people hate doing. I don't mind cutting my images out so personally, it's no big deal. As a matter of fact, I cut images out 50% of the time.

What is the technique? If you notice the chef's clothing. . .his shirt and hat has a design print, well that's an overlay of pattern paper not rubber stamped.

I know, I know. . .Mr. Chef is a bit feminine but I liked the pattern so I went with it. Mr. Chef looks "pretty" in his cool outfit . . .don't you think? I think more chef's should use pretty outfits! Ha!

Anyway, try it out. . .it's a great way to rid of scraps of patterned paper you have lying around.

Why don't you try this and submit your work for the blog candy I have going. . .Click Here for Details
