Sometimes I want to use more than one background paper but want something different than a basic stacked paper look. One method I like to use is a split stacked paper technique. Sometimes the kit has so many pretty papers I want to use them all! Not only is it visually appealing it gives me more places to tuck in elements. If you've seen many of my layouts you know I love clustering elements. I feel like I can add more clusters without over doing it. I love it so much I've used this type layout a lot. Here are a couple of favorite layouts I've made using split backgrounds.
