Introducing Artistry Pt. 3 - Backgrounds Layout (with Design Space File)

So far I've shared two of my favorite features from Artistry - themes and icons. My third and final share? The awesome background feature!

What Are Backgrounds?: In Artistry, backgrounds consist of overlays and borders. Overlays are wonderful for creating a dimensional background on a layout like this one or on a card. Borders also create another fun element by adding a continuous shape across the base of your project.

Technique: I used the backgrounds from page 46, and all products are from the Zoe collection. I added the cut outs from the Glacier border to the white spaces in the Canary overlay (I wasn't sure what color I wanted to use for my border, which is why there's both Glacier and Sorbet shapes).

Design Space File: I created the layout in Design Space (I find it so much easier to visualize what I want that way), so here's the Design Space File for you to use!

Happy crafting!
