Lately I have been following a few online discussions related to background choices for layouts and it has really made me think about my own. For awhile now, I have been doing the majority of mine on a white cardstock base. I like the way color pops off a white background and the “clean” look that a white based layout has. My second most used type of background is patterned paper. I am particularly fond of using any sort of neutral or natural looking patterned paper such as the woodgrain paper I used in this layout from the March Main Kit:
One of the pluses of using a woodgrain or neutral patterned paper is that is will go well with the other colors that you choose to work with. You can see here that that I went with pink and more neutrals.
What kind of backgrounds do you like to use for your projects? Do you have an automatic go to background or do you mix it up? I like to have options and having both the Paper and Cardstock Add-Ons provides me with plenty to choose from.
Wishing you a great day!
