Making your own custom graphic background is a quick and easy way to add colour and movement to a page.
Here’s how I made a page by making my own graphic background, featuring triangles.
Step 1 – Choose Your Shapes
The first thing I did on this page was draw some big, bold triangles on a 12×12 canvas and then clipped some paper to them.
Step 2 – Accent the Shapes
I thought the colours on the triangles needed a little “oomph” so I duplicated each triangle and clipped a bold blue paper to bottom triangles. Then I “nudged” them over a bit so that just the edge peeked out from underneath.
Step 3 – Add Photos and Word Art
I added a few pictures to the the page and I replicated the look of a Polaroid frame by just adding a white rectangle under each photo and extending it a bit on one side. Then I accented the photos with some fun word art.
Step 4 – Add the Finishing Touches
Finally, I added some floral clusters and, my favourite, some journalling.
An easy colourful design and another memory captured!
