I loved the colorful speech bubble paper by Simple Stories included in the kit and wanted to use it on this page; however, my photos already had a lot happening in them. That's when I decided to keep the background simple and just use a splash of color here-and-there.
A colorful patterned paper, like the speech bubble paper, is best used in small doses in this situation so that it doesn't overwhelm your photos. Here, I trimmed out a row of the bubbles and placed it along the top of my photo grouping. I used a a couple of them to add journaling to this page.
Next time you are struggling to make the products on your page work with the photos you are working with, try keeping it simple by using just a few spots of color.
