Dare # 51

This dare is about 'Patterns'.

def: arrangement of repeated parts or decorative designs.

I've noticed patterns are very popular lately, e.g. houndstooth, harlequin, checkered, spots, argyle etc.
Use a pattern at least once on your LO, can be a piece of fabric, a stamp, a piece of p/p, make a pattern on a background. Like Rach used the houndstooth stamp repeated down the side of her LO from dare # 49.
So think of a creative way to use a pattern or patterns on your LO.

Here's my LO. I've used an old making Memories stamp repeatedly to make the background and then I've used other patterns on my LO like the checkered fabric, the scalloped edges of the lace and the c/s and the diamond stamp at the top.

Lianne.



And here is Lara Moss' layout.

Lara is our Guest Designer for this dare. She has repeated her dot pattern throughout the LO and it is even in her photo. Thanks Lara.

Donna - I also went for dots!


Sharon - I used plaid:
Monique....hi everyone, I used a wee Maya Rd star stamp to create my pattern.
Trina - I used Paisley and Hearts.
