This layering technique has given me some ideas about using up large pieces of paper. For this page, I searched my stacks of paper as well as scrap box and came away with several that I would have never used together. I matted 2 prints on one of the sheets and stacked the rest in a disorderly fashion on kraft cardstock.
For me it's easier to put these patterns together because only bits are peaking out from the layered stack and they add interest and dimension rather than competing with each other for attention.
The finished page included layered photos as well as some stickers layered with punched pieces of paper. Lots of layering fun on this layout.
