Patchwork Dreamland Layout

By Vera Shelemekh


“Hello Graphic45 fans!

It’s time for experiments. Let’s play with shapes and make a patchwork background for a card or a layout. I’ll be playing with rhombus but you may choose another shape.


Please, watch my video tutorial with an idea of patchwork background. It’s really easy and fun.

Tips and Tricks:

  • Cut the shapes with a punch, a die cut machine, with a plotter or by hand.

  • There are so many shapes to play with: rhombus, hexagon, circle, star, snowflake etc.

  • Fill in the whole background or just part of it and cut off the sticking parts when the project is ready.” ~Vera
