Hi Just Nick friends, it's Jaclyn here!  This week the design team is focusing on backgrounds.  I made a fun, colorful and spring inspired page using the Doily Background cut file, an old favorite of mine, for sure!

This background file could certaintly be sized down to take up less real estate on a page, but I love the statement it makes when it's big and bold!  I chose to size my cut file to fill most of the width of my 8.5"X11" page and placed it in the top upper left corner.  Doing so, allows the florals to cascade down the page and allows your eye to land and rest on the page focal point - the photo!

I reached for my pile of patterned paper scraps to fill in the negative space of the doily design.  Each 'flower' has a dark, patterned center, lighter petals and a coordinating buttons sewn on top. 

I used a strip of patterned paper along the bottom border of the page that ties in all of the colors used to back the doilies.

I hope you'll share with us the creative ways you're using Just Nick backgrounds on your projects.  Hashtag your creations #jusnickstudio so we can find them!
