Get It Scrapped! | Same Print Mixing

***NOTE:  This article will post on the Get It Scrapped! Blog on Thursday, December 5th.***

There are a ton of different patterns to choose from on your favorite patterned papers.  But, sometimes it's fun to mix same print patterns and today at Get It Scrapped!, the Creative Team is sharing inspiration for mixing two or more print patterns that all have the same motif but with that motif varying in size and/or color.  Here's a look at what I created for the assignment:

After a recent trip to the beach, we stopped at a local ice cream shop to get milkshakes for the family.  I chose a collection that would work with my daughter's photo and that also included a pattern that was available in different sizes and colors.  The diagonal stripes help add energy to my layout and I worked with a Black and White stripe and a Teal and White stripe to add contrasting colors.  The stripes also vary in size, with one being thinner and the other thicker, which helps to give a fun visual interest to the layout.  And I used a White cardstock background, to keep the mix of diagonal stripes from overwhelming my layout.
