MDSM86... Let's try a Technique!

Hi Everyone!  It's Heidi.  I thought today we'd try a background technique that could be applied to a card or scrapbook page, the herringbone technique.  You can find a step-by-step video by Juanita Golson on

A couple of hints -
  • I followed Juanita's method for one quadrant of the herringbone pattern.  I then grouped them together (without the first three main divider pieces) and copied and pasted for the other three quadrants.
  • I created the herringbone pattern on a separate page, exported as a JPEG, and then inserted into another page so that I could mat the layer neatly onto a background page base.
Here's a look at the herringbone pattern created on a separate page - 

Have fun trying a new technique, and I can't wait to see what you make!
