I've been following the UKScrappers 'ScrapFactor' contest, and one of the challenges was to scrap a layout without using patterned paper, so I thought I'd give it a go. I used the June kit from Sarah's Cards, plus a couple of leftovers from previous Sampler kits and a flower from Precocious Paper.
I used a pale grey cardstock, splashed some red ink around and then added layers of ribbon, border stickers and journaling spots. I was feeling quite pleased with myself until I realised that the flower from Precocious Paper had patterned paper on it - oops! Oh well :D
