If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Scrapbook Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my layout:

reflection scrapbook collection

For this layout, I used the pattern paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection to create the circle patten behind my photo.

I used a 2in circle punch to punch out 4 circles out of the different pattern papers that has matching colors in the photo.

Then I trimmed the photo down to fit over the circles without totally covering them.

To add dimension behind the photo, I cut two black and white pieces of the pattern paper and adhered it to the back of the photo.

Once the circles and the photo were adhered down, the page looked to white so I used Altenew Frayed Leaf Ink Spray to add splatters around the focal point of the page.

After the ink dried, I placed the title down using the letter stickers that come in the kit.

To finish the page off, I placed some the the chipboard in the kit on top of the photo and under the title of the page.  Adding the date to the bottom of the page using the rotary stamp which is also included in the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

Let’s take a closer look:

So what do you think?  Would you use pattern paper to create different shapes to use on your layouts?  I would love to hear what you think below!
