Scrapbooking Challenges Part 6 - Too BUSY!

For these penguin pictures, I wanted to use this lovely hand-made pink and black chevron paper that I had. I thought it would set the pictures off well and pull in a little bit of color.  However, the chevron pattern was overwhelming! It was way too busy a pattern - one could go blind looking at a whole page of it!  So, I went with a plain gray background for most of the page, using the chevron pattern for mats and borders as shown.  A very thin plain border around the pictures, mats and borders also helped tone things down and make a nice look.

Awwww I love penguins. They are so cute. Of course I just love the movie Happy Feet too. ;-) Great layout and great idea to use the one paper for mats and borders. The grey background sets it off well.
