Weekend Wildcard Challenge 23 May 2020

Recommended Posts

I’ve got a fairly easy challenge for you this weekend – a background challenge.  Do you gravitate toward a certain type of background for most of your layouts?  I’d like you to choose from the following types of backgrounds, and use one of them in your layout.  You may choose one that is comfortable for you, or choose an option that you wouldn’t normally use.  When you’ve finished your layout, post it in the Weekend Wildcard Challenge Gallery, then come back to this thread and leave a link to your layout so that we can all admire it.  Here are your choices:

-  Striped background

-  Polka dotted background

-  Floral background

-  Solid background

-  Blended backround:  For an added challenge, try to blend papers using all four options above:  Stripes, dots,floral, and solid!

Mikelle do you mean that the papers have to be "blended" into the background or just papers to be used on the page?

I had a layout with a lot of bright photos to do, so at first I started with a white background, but the solid black really made it pop. I almost NEVER scrap with a solid black background, so thanks for the challenge, Mikelle! Here is Inflatable Fun.

Sorry Debby, I just checked in again.  I did mean blended, but actually either is just fine - blend them or just use them all on your page, or combine the two - some blended some not.  It's a pretty open challenge!

Thanks for the fun challenge.  I stretched out of my comfort zone a bit to add different styles of paper on my layout, blended with Brandy Murry's beautiful background blenders!  Here is mine.

Here is mine finally:  Winter Walk

I started out intending to find a striped paper, and I already had my photos in mind.  I found this paper by Sekada Designs, in the White Fields collection (which I recently bought - it's been on my wishlist forever!)  The paper has blended stripes, but the stripes also have polka dots.  Besides the background, I added a few stripes with a brush, and some striped embellishments.
