Hi friends! Dana Tatar here today sharing a scrapbook layout documenting my trip to a dairy farm. The animal print patterned paper that I had in my stash is great for wildlife, but not so good for the farm yard. I solved my problem by creating a DIY Cow Print Paper using Adhesive Sheets and flocking powder.
DIY Cow Print Patterned Paper
I’m really pleased with how my cow print paper turned out! It is soft to touch, just like a real cow. I hand cut shapes from a 6×12 Adhesive Sheet and then sprinkled on flocking powder. The 6×12 Adhesive Sheet was the perfect size to fill about half of a 12×12 piece of cardstock. Adhesive Sheets are available in a variety of sizes to fit your crafting needs.

Adding Dimension with Embellishments
The design of this page is simple, so I added interest to the layout with textured embellishments like corrugated cardboard and foam letter stickers, embossed paper flowers, cow print flocked shapes, and twine.
I used 3D Foam to add height to the page. 3D Foam Squares worked great to raise the second photo off the base of the page. I used 3D Foam Circles to secure the paper flowers to the layout.
Micro Adhesive Dots are the perfect size to help hold the twine bow in place.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to try creating your own patterned papers! Until next time,
